If one continues to themselves that they do not know, then they will continue to not know. This is because, scientifically speaking, we are wiring and firing our brain to respond as we have directed it. We are thinking the same thought and producing the same result. How many of us find ourselves using that phrase: “I don’t know” when thinking about our lives, a decision we need to make or just answering a simple question? I remember my mentor using the phrase “I know nothing not, what do I need to know.” This might be powerful and is not the same as just stating “I don’t know.” Instead, this means you are not stuck with what your ego thinks it knows; and instead you open to truly knowing what is possible for you. It’s asking the Bigger Mind for the answer to your question without the restrictions of the conditional world.
We do know the answer to every single question when we open to this Bigger Mind, the One Mind. This is because this One Mind holds all information because past, present and future is all in this Now Moment.
I remember the story of Judge Thomas Troward the great writer, mystic and lecturer who wrote the Edinburgh Lectures and other great metaphysical books. In his early days, he was studying for an exam. He knew there would be questions on metaphysics on the exam, and at that time, he didn’t know much about the subject. However, in meditation the night before the exam, he allowed himself to open up to the Infinite Mind, and he accepted that the answers would be there for him the next day. Needless to say, his professor was astonished at his answers and even asked him how be acquired such knowledge.
Recently, I have found myself asking myself important questions about my life and how I want to live it in this new year and as I enter a new decade. Sometimes, I find myself trapped in that “I don’t know” quandary. I catch myself in my own trap. It isn’t that I don’t know; but that I might not want to hear the answer. This I know is a form of procrastination. If we tell ourselves we do not know, we can put off what it is we innately know we need to do.
As I enter 2023 and my new decade, I’ve decided not to be afraid of any change that might present itself. I have decided to know that I am clear about my life and how I want to express myself. What I feel, and maybe it is because I am getting older, is life is truly short. I want to live it to the fullest without fear or doubt in my own ability to KNOW. I am God’s Intelligence and the experiences and changes that call to me are coming from that Intelligence.
We all have this capability no matter how old we are. Spirit/Source intuits through each of us. Our journey is unique. We have the responsibility to live a life of choice. We have the responsibility to speak with clarity from our highest self that knows the Truth in each moment.
Dr. Ernest Holmes once asked if we could imagine what the world would be like if everyone lived and spoke Truth. What is Truth? It is Love. It is thinking from that Highest Place and knowing that all the answers we could ever require are right where we are – for ourselves and for this beautiful blue planet. What a beautiful world we would create!
