The Magic of Not Ever Knowing.


“Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there's a big disappointment, we don't know if that's the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don't know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don't know.” ― Pema Chödrön
Oh, how we are all so very guilty of this, after all. For, in our few first moments of a new experience just 'waking up,' our human brains struggle to find a place for it to belong.

And in our struggle, we rush quickly to label - we call it anger, disappointment, sadness...or failure.

We label first before we ever really even understand.

And, it's only in these many years forward and looking back, that it all becomes clear once again.

Had we only paused just long enough to breathe, we might have realized that every new beginning 'comes from some other beginning's end.'

And that's the magic of this life, right here, now isn't it? That each day, each moment - is a brand new beginning...and life, is a most brilliant adventure, when it is that we allow it the space to just simply be.

Namaste, my most beautiful friends...and here's to the magic of not ever knowing.
