By Raphael Awen
Have you ever noticed that those who claim to not know how to pray offer the best prayers?
So often, it’s our experience and familiarity with something that hampers our arising and new direct interaction with that something.
How could we return to a state of not knowing in order to have a first time experience?
Even asking this question is using experience and knowing as an attempt to return to the innocence not knowing. Isn’t it maddening when the mind gets in the way, even when it’s wanting and willing to get out of the way, but just doesn’t know how?
Wait! I think we solved it, no?
You want to get out of your own way, but don’t know how. Now, you enter the womb of surrender.
You have a desire for something that you have no power or knowledge whatsoever on how you are going to achieve that something. All you have is what you don’t have.
I feel this place where my assets of past experience don’t seem to add up to anything of salvageable value towards entering a new unknown, except for the one asset of not knowing. If I don’t know, then I get to admit that, lead with that, toddle out my first steps into the new thing, laugh goodheartedly at myself along with the others I’m entertaining in the process.
I believe you also, not too far down inside, can feel the place where you don’t know what you are doing.
What if this could be admitted, owned, and cherished instead of a thing of shame and resistance and hiding? Your not knowing is the real gold you came here to share and explore.
You enter the God-zone where even God gets to not know through you.And it makes you really interesting, fun and sexy, if you ask me. Know it alls are boring and dry.
