“All I know is that I don’t know nothing”.
This is so true. The more I learn the less I realize I know.

In so few words you said it all. We may believe we control or world and know all. A simple change can turn our view and thoughts around. A excellent poem.
thanks … much appreciated
It truly is okay. :)
You’ve written so 1st person, or the commenting observer, that your switch to hidden 3rd person subtle sarcasm took me by surprise. Had to go around the block and sit down next to the title to decipher your voice. …good visuals too. Could be the voice over in a movie. Had fun with this one.
thanks … glad you enjoyed it.
I’m been very impressed with your blog … superb!
Good stuff, though, I wonder …
I think the truth is that we’ll never know the truth … we’ll always seek it out, but, at least from a Buddhist perspective, we only find the truth after lifetimes and lifetimes of searching…
But, I think we can know the wonder… isn’t it the wonder of it all that keeps us searching for the truth of it all?
Just a thought….
The more we think we know – the more we find we don’t. But being comfortable with not knowing it all, doesn’t come easy to some. I’m more comfortable with that than ever before, but I’m finding I’m making my long established wonderful Christian friends who still believe in their answers – I’m causing them discomfort, that I’m OK not knowing the answers. I’m being me, I don’t preach to them, they don’t preach to me, but my freedom in thinking effects them – and that makes me feel uncomfortable! I suppose we can’t have it all ways, and it’s a small price to pay to keep genuine friendship! :)
answers certain questions
for each culture
· why we’re here (creation)
· why part of big picture (community / ritual / purpose)
· why systems of social control (rules / structure)
fear of religions
growing realms of knowledge
coming to terms
finding comfort in doubt
I love this! It’s SO how I see myself… LOL. It’s nice to hear someone else say its okay… :D
at the worst
To confine within the confines of confident ignorance, is a splendid act of intelligence
A really nice write, great blog :)
