What do you know that you don’t want to know

 

What do you know that you don’t want to know?
– Adyashanti

I have noticed this for myself. When I tell myself I am confused and don’t know what to do, I often find I do know. I just don’t want to know it, and that’s where the sense of confusion and struggle comes from. What I know is uncomfortable. It may have consequences I would rather avoid. It goes up against my fears and old beliefs. It goes against my familiar identities.

I continue telling myself I am confused and don’t know what to do, until something shifts and I am ready to acknowledge that I do know, and take a closer look at my fears. What do I fear the most would happen if I admit to what I know?

– when really confused, don’t know what to do
– ask myself that question
– find that I do know, just don’t want to know it – it’s uncomfortable, goes up against fears, old beliefs

– the sense of confusion and struggle comes from knowing something i don’t want to know, not the situation itself
