Taking a spiritual approach to my life necessitated some audio alterations. Prior to this shift, sharing my phenomenal ideas with you seemed paramount. Bottom line – I probably bored most people much of the time; I am just not that wonderful. Accepting that I am just another bozo on the bus and not so profound was step one in my transition.
Whoever said, “You should know better” to me, as a child, did not mean everything for the rest of my life! I do not have to have all the answers. If I think that I do, my ability to learn is thwarted. “I don’t know” is an appropriate response when I’m not sure. The first few attempts at verbalizing my lack of knowledge felt excruciating. With time however, I became more and more comfortable with keeping my opinion to myself.
I don’t know better most of the time, and that is a good thing. Everyone is my teacher. This new attitude opens the door to amazing new insights that are not available to the person who has all the answers.
Should you be interested in a more spiritual life, practice saying, “I don’t know” today, and listen.
“To know and yet think we do not know is the highest attainment. Not to know and yet think we do know is a disease.” Lao-tsu
