Not Knowing What You Don’t Know Won’t Allow You To Grow. - Grasshopper
I don’t want you to go cold on me but I’m about to use the overused “Iceberg” analogy. Most of what we don’t know lives below the surface. To stop crashing into things, we have to become aware that they are there.
A useful assumption to make is this: We don’t know the whole story; we probably never will. That should not, however, keep us from pursuing that which needs recognition so we can begin to thaw that which seems to be immutable law. “Why does this always happen to me?”
Quoting the celebrated Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Jung: “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
Years ago, I bought into the notion that there are parts of us. And part of that notion is there is a part of us that knows a lot more than we can consciously know. I find that petitioning that part of us, on a regular basis, to light the way forward not only pays homage to this wellspring of knowledge, it allows it come to the surface with more regularity.
Make it a mission to know what you don’t know and watch yourself grow. It begins with making a request to that part of you that has more answers than you have questions.
We’re only our own worst enemy when we continue to not know. Reach out to that knowing part of you and make its acquaintance. If you do, you’re likely to meet your new best friend.
All the best,
