I was painfully shy growing up. I didn’t start to break out of my shell until I was about nineteen.

The beautiful thing is that we don’t have to have the answer to this question. In fact, the more we can recognize and accept that not only do we not know the answer but that we don’t need to, the more open we become to actually seeing the answer. In our culture, “not knowing” is often judged as weakness. Quite to the contrary, recognizing and accepting that we don’t know actually opens our heart and mind to receiving answers that we could have never imagined possible. It opens us to receiving miracles.
We don’t need to know because there’s something within us that does. With practice, we can trust this to lead us and show us whatever we need to know and to show things that “human knowing” could not even dream of. xo
