Fearlessness & The Unknown



I had originally planned to explore more about knowing and NOT knowing, but I've learned something this week: 

I am quite content about what I know and what I don't know.

I am even just fine with NOT knowing what I know and NOT knowing what I don't know.

Having a head injury has made this all really clear for me. I'm sure that sounds odd, but this is what I am thinkingandfeeling today.

I know there are always going to BE unknowns and probably unknowables, too. So BE it. Life goes on...

I'm comfortable with anyone seeing that I don't know although as I navigate this head injury I am more than a little uncomfortable with what I don't know. I'm just going to have to find my way and give others time to adjust, too.

All of that is getting better day by day, little by slowly.

I know that I am a person of integrity AND that at Present I am forgetting things I should BE remembering and thinking about things that sometimes make no sense at all.

This will pass OR a way round it will BE put in place.

I am attending to what is important and learning that letting go of what is NOT is NOT anywhere near the End of the World.

I'm recalling a quote from Lao Tzu that goes:

If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve.

Change is constant. And ongoing. And while that may on the face of it seem redundant, it's NOT, at least NOT to me.

And I've no fear at all of dying. I know it's going to happen and I trust it. I am in no great hurry, yet I am NOT anxious. It's merely another Let Go.

Honestly...

I didn't know I would BE Here, Right Now, yet I canNOT imagine me BEing anywhere else. 

That seems a good way for me to BE and to Live.

Open.

Willing.

Knowing I know some things and don't know some others.

How about you?!

Any of this stirring your pot?!

I am challenging myself to write out loud for the 91 days, 1 April through 30 June 2013. I'm pulling questions out of hats and giving them some room to romp. If you have a question to share, please email me...

Hello Currie
Knowing and not knowing is all a bit beyond me at the moment. I am content to be just now. I am having difficulties trying to put all the things I want to do in some sort of perspective. i think your daily writing is very interesting though. I love your giraffe.
