The greatest power you will ever develop, is the power of not knowing.
Knowledge blinds you to what is real, once you know something, you stop seeing it for what it really is and you start seeing it for what you think it is.
If we look at a chair, what is that to a baby? they don’t know the word chair yet, so they see it for what it really is, an infinite possibility. They will climb on it and use it in so many different ways, that we can not even imagine.
But what is a chair to us? well its something to sit on. But what is it really? Well we have all used it as a table at one point, or another, so is it a table?
What a chair is, is a story. That story is “something to sit on” so through conditioning we end up seeing it through that lens of words and stories, which then restricts us, in how we see it.
But what is it really? Is it metal, wood or even molecules or atoms. Ultimately we get to the point where we call it “energy” but that is still a word. That word is layered on top of it, but that word is not what it is. it is infinite possibilities.
We could, in two seconds, put that chair on a wall and call it art? like our imagination it is infinite possibilities.
So can you really know what it is? as far as I can tell, we can not know what it is. We can not know what anything is. Let that sink in.
Where in your life are you sure of things, or where do you believe in things. Are you sure about yourself now? Who are you? What are you? are you your story?
They are all stories they are all words and they are all not what the situation or thing really is.
Do you know yourself? are you smart or dumb? is that true? can you know for certain?
This is the magic of not knowing. Once we really, really connect, with the understanding that we can not know anything, then we are free. We are free from the story that we are something, or we should be something. Ultimately we can not be anything, because things do not exist. Things are just words, and they are not what reality really is. They are just words.
Imagine you are not what you think you are, you are not what your life experiences have been and you are not a victim or victor, because they are all stories. You are what experienced them. But you are not them.
It is your choice to attach to those stories or not. to play them or not. you are in charge of that.
if you can not know anything then you are free to create everything. you are free to attach to the stories that empower you and drive you forward. You are now free to be a master of every thing in your world. Because you can now manipulate every story there is.
By not knowing, you now know every-thing.
Have an awesome day.
