Spirit tells me that I need to learn not to know, in the sense that I can
Accept and understand that there is no absolute knowledge beyond
Which there is nothing more to learn about whatever.
Science serves us well in reaching beyond the limits of our present
Understanding and providing us with ever-more insights into
But, even scientists know there is more that can be and will be learned
That’s fine for scientists, but I seem to need to believe in something.
Do you believe in me?
Spirit tells me that we live and share with each other
As teacher and student of wisdom, and that
Wisdom is understanding while knowledge alone
Knowing what is what is not the same as knowing
Why what is what and how to use that knowing
To serve self, community, and Life.
A farmer usually knows more than what
To plant, when to plant, and where to plant.
Why requires understanding based on
The same is true of compassion, He tells me.
The memories or personal pain compel us
To feel the pain of others, or we have not
Suffered enough. It’s as simple as that.
