Not Knowing

Department: 

 

I thought about being afraid of numbers,
& realized it’s not the numbers,

it’s others who know numbers better than I.

I thought about being afraid of others who know numbers better than I,
& realized it’s not the others,
it’s not knowing numbers myself.

I thought about not knowing numbers myself,
& realized it’s not the numbers,
it’s the “not knowing.”

I thought about “not knowing,”
& realized “not knowing” is a spiritual place.

To not know is a spiritual place.
I thought about all the “not knowing” places in my life as spiritual places,
& realized the “not knowing” places are where I want to be.
I relaxed into them.
