I think it is a pretty important idea to come to the realization that I do not know what I don’t know. When I was 20 I thought I knew everything, so when faced with new knowledge I would vehemently detract from it unapologetically. I was afraid that by acknowledging that I didn’t already know something that I would be seen as stupid or weak or inferior. My ego was huge. And now I can comfortably say I knew nothing, and largely still don’t.
But at least now I am much more comfortable with saying the phrase “I don’t know”. Most people are not however, and that is when we usually hit a wall during conversations. That is when people get mean, defensive and irrational. That is when division is made. I am ok with not being in complete agreement with everyone in every conversation I have. I am beginning to learn to let it go and let them have their opinion and perception without feeling like it invalidates my own.
Just like walking in to an ocean, I have begun walking in to my own comfort. Even though I cannot see its depths, I am comfortable there because I know it is moving me forward. My soul and the ocean are becoming places of calm because I am choosing to move my life in that direction, on purpose.
