“It is true, we don’t know what is happening in the deepest sense. And if we can stay with that not knowing, and trust it, and enjoy it, we will be able to experience our life in some fundamentally different way. That’s our miraculous power.”

    Staying with the not knowing is one of the toughest challenges of our time. Indeed it is one of the gifts of living well or striving toward a good life.
