Not-knowing is a natural and healthy aspect of being alive, but in our culture we have no foundation upon which to understand it. Placing ourselves in a negative relationship to something that is fundamentally true in our own daily experience is a very silly and damaging thing to do. To go through life as though not-knowing is bad—when, in every moment of our experience, not-knowing is true and always present—what does that leave us with? It leaves us with a constant struggle. It leaves us with an aberrant relationship to our own condition. And isn’t that what we’ve got?
