The Art of Not Knowing
Our being, the blending of physical form and energetic essence, is highly intelligent, a part of a much larger organism, what we call the Universe. As part of this greater organism, we exist within the laws of nature, and the cycles and patterns of life, death and rebirth.
These natural rhythms of life are an inherent part of our composition. We breathe, our blood flows, our heart beats, we grow and evolve – Consciousness orchestrates all of our movement.
We are aware of this movement, we understand this as life. Yet we have access to more, to a greater understanding, a larger perspective, an infinite experience not limited by the human mind, physical laws, science or our history.
This level of greater understanding only comes about when we let go, open-up, know nothing, and dissolve all that we believe. In this state of not-knowing, we find truth, wisdom, perfection, and the expansiveness needed to lead us further into the mystery of the consciousness of life.
When we reside in a state of not-knowing, we are available to participate with consciousness. We can listen to receive its wisdom. We can engage more consistently, becoming fluent in its language.
Awareness, stillness, and deep listening are the tools we use to tend our relationship with consciousness. We listen to the information we receive from our intuition, thoughts and feelings. We pay attention to our dreams. We learn to connect more deeply with our inner-world of subtle sensations, images and perceptions.
Eventually, as we become more tuned-in, tending our relationship with consciousness becomes more natural. As a result, our life energy flows with less effort, and our physical body self-heals more efficiently. We become more at ease with life.
We begin to remember the highly advanced intelligence we have within us. We remember that it has always been a part of our human magnificence.
