  1. The need to know so permeates my way of being in the world, that I don’t know what I don’t know. The times that I can give up the security of knowing are few and far between. And so I continue on with the exhausting work of carrying this “need to know” around with me all the time. I find myself in a spin of “doing” whatever it takes to figure it out, be in the know, to know. It gets in the way of enjoying what “is” right now.

    Life is what happens when you’re busy trying to figure it out. A variation of something the great philosopher John Lennon said, but it’s still a good reminder for me.

  2. I realize that the need to know comes from the need to control, which is rooted in my fears. If I can recognize my fears, love them and release them gently, perhaps I won’t need to control or need to know anymore. Insecurity is indeed liberating. And it’s full of possibilities!

  3. If only we could be as certain of the continuity of life as the potatoes.
    We could give up the worry and fear, and thrive.
    Perhaps I’ll taste some of that freedom.
