I don’t know

Tonight I learned of a spiritual teacher who told her student, “You will find more peace when you make a friend of “I don’t know.”” This concept really took root in me. The unknown can feel so daunting. We are often ashamed of not having the perfect answer every time. When we admit to ourselves that we don’t know, we create a sense of peace that provides space for answers that may reach far beyond our expectations.
