Not Knowing Is Most Intimate*

A Online Meeting Group 

How intimate do you want to be with the Mystery? How willing are you to enter the experience of not knowing? Our chatty minds are not always comfortable with not knowing. We may have been conditioned to believe we have to know what is happening all the time, as if our life depends upon it. We may even have had experiences of trauma related to not knowing.

Not knowing is very important in the awakening and expansion of consciousness.


Poems, koans, and dreams speak to us in a language that our souls can really understand and our thinking minds cannot instantly grab. They can take us into the Mystery of not knowing and follow us around on soft, silent, kitty paws that shift our awareness and open doors and windows to freedom from the anxiety of needing to know.


A koan or a poem can serve as a riddle that can confuse, obfuscate, frustrate our minds in order to bring about a change of heart, as koan master John Tarrant Roshi would say. I have found that not knowing is a potent spiritual practice that can open us to spaciousness and give us access to the quantum field of all possibilities. We are free to meet what is, as it is, in the spaciousness of not knowing and the Grace that it makes available.


I invite you to join me in this play of consciousness.

The Real Work

It may be that when we no longer know what to do

we have come to our real work,

and that when we no longer know which way to go

we have come to our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.

The impeded stream is the one that sings.

~ Wendell Berry
