Sweet Mystery

 

“Without mysteries, life would be very dull indeed. What would be left to strive for if everything were known?”
― Charles de Lint

 

It’s funny you know. So many people out there claiming to have the answers. Even if they don’t have the hubris (or the stupidity) to claim to know it all, they know the one true path to find out. They know what is to come and that it is coming soon. Just follow their methods and you can know too. Yet all or most of these ways are different. Either a little different or in some cases almost polar opposites. You pay your money and you take your choices.
Maybe tho, the right path for us to follow is whatever path we’re on. Studying what calls us and learning and living what and how we can. Maybe its ok not to know but to appreciate the mystery of life. Yes the world is changing and we need to change but isn’t change the constant? Perhaps there will be some cataclysm that is to come and we need to be ready or perish. If perishing is possible. Perhaps we are on the brink of the most positive transformation that the human race has yet to see. All of these possibilities and more are out there. Each of us will know as we get there and for me that is ok. Part of what has always kept me going is curiosity as to what can happen next. May we all grow in wonder and embrace the mystery.

The End of the Known

 

“One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.”
― Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

Where on your map of reality does it say “Here there be Dragons?” What mental guardians do you place to guard your comfort zone so that you avoid straying out of it?
Far too often I use what people think of me or will think of me to keep myself in my place of avoiding risk, of avoiding growth. This remains true despite the fact that time and time again I have demonstrated to myself that I can take risks without risking the ill feelings of others.

It has become a truism that only outside of our comfort zone do we grow with any form of rapidity. Yet we place these fearsome playful pets there anyway. Why? When did trying new things become frightening? As kids we love to explore and many of us lose that somehow. Is it that as we get older we have so much more to lose? Not only in a material sense but in a personal story sense. “I have told myself that this is how things are for years, if I start believing they are another way, then how will I ever be sure about anything?” BINGO!!!! The truth is when it comes right down to it, that we can never be 100% sure tho by a combination of examining new ideas and comparing our old ones against it as well as employing a bit of sense and the wisdom of discernment we may evolve truer understandings of the nature of reality. Of course to do that we have to be willing to open our minds to possibility and yes vanquish some dragons along the way.
