We don't know shit.
Is the glass half full or half empty? It the lamp high or low? Is $20.00 too much or too little? Is she pretty or ugly, thin or fat, tall or short, nice or mean, helpful or uncooperative?
Will today be a good day or a bad day. Will people like me or not? Will I be kind or dismissive?
Let's face it. We don't know what things mean. It's all relative. It depends on our mood. It depends on what happened previously. It depends on what we have been told and people are saying.
We get in a rut. We experience the same old thing. We don't think that things will ever change.
As my brother used to say, "There is no such thing as gravity. The whole world sucks." And indeed, for him, it did.
And so, we make up our reality. What we see is what we get or better yet, what we think we will see is what we will get.
Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.
Be careful what you fear for fearing something will bring it closer to you.
Don't be afraid but love and let go. Do your best and God, Life, The Universe will do the rest.
It must be admitted, when examined closely, that we don't know shit.
Adopt a position of "not knowing" and live your life with curiosity. Life is a search for the Divine. Greater powers than ours generate the universe of which we know very little if anything. Life is a mystery.
