What If You Knew What You Don’t Know

with 3 comments

I always think it’s a bit of paradox that we often find ourselves in a situation needing to know things in order to make sense.

The fact is that we only get to know what we don’t know when we become aware that we don’t know it – up till then it hasn’t mattered one iota, therefore why do we get upset about not knowing!

Don't KnowYou can read and study all you like, but that’s not going to help – because you just don’t know what it is that you are going to need to know until you need to know it.

We make decisions everyday based on what we know now, and that’s good enough.  There is no rule that you have to stick to that decision when you know more.  What this means is that you are constantly changing, you are continually learning and knowing more and you can make new decisions whenever you feel like it based on that new information.

This is today’s Note from the Universe

I don’t recommend asking for what you can have, or even for what you can give, nearly as much as I recommend asking for what else you can know.

Because there is always more you can know, and knowing it will radically increase all you can have and give.

When we begin to trust and accept that there are greater forces than ourselves at play, we begin to surrender to the process of being in the right place, at the right time, meeting the right people, saying the right thing and everything is just as it should be.

With a willingness to open to possibility, suddenly we find all sorts of opportunities around us which we didn’t know were there.  In order to notice these possibilities and opportunities we have to be willing to have a quiet mind, be fearless, and to notice what is working and what isn’t.

It requires us to take the blinkers off.  It needs us to be curious.  And, we need to accept when we need to take a different path.

Very often we need to make a decision in order to know more.  The people who take no action,  who worry about  ‘what if’ cannot hear or see what choices they have because they are so engrossed in their story of lack or fear.

Turn Your Thinking On It's Head

Turn Your Thinking On It's Head

Our life is on earth is about  fun and we can make it as easy or hard as we like, every time you don’t know something rejoice in the fact that you are about to turn a corner which will create a new future, if you let it!

  1. Jackie,
    I love this post. I often tell myself to relax and trust that I know what I need to know in the moment that I need to know it. When you relax the opportunities and choices become much clearer.
    Trust and curiosity can open up so many avenues.

    Thank you for reminding me : )
