Letting Go Of What You Think You Know...

By: Angela Mayah Solstice

In the ever-popular Landmark Education seminars, they often bring up a philosophy that says: There is what you know. There is what you don’t know. And there is what you don’t know you don’t know. I always found those statements profound. The latter of the three brought me a temporary relief in knowing that it was okay that I didn’t know everything. But my ego felt at home with the first, and almost cost me a life of peace and happiness - -

When I started my quest to change my life I was on a mission to discover what I did not know. I read every book I could get my hands on and reached out for support. I was aware of what I didn’t  know and I wanted to find how to get to where I wanted to be in life. The journey was not without setbacks, heartache, and inner struggles, but it was worth it, and soon enough I saw signs of growth within myself. Determined not to be content, I kept pushing forward, and before I knew it I was treading in the confronting sea of  “What I didn’t know, I didn’t know.” Often times feeling scared, alone, and overwhelmed I anxiously kept poking my little head up to see a whole new world as I healed my innermost hurts and patterns - -

My good friend often reminds me of the grace that has been given to me from others. What a headache I must have been bullying through life thinking I knew everything. Even more, how self-sabotaging it was to believe in the illusions of the things I didn’t know thinking a good life could never be mine. I believe the magic happens in discovering what you didn’t know, you didn’t know. Relieved of the burden of knowing it all and welcoming in the life of endless possibilities.
