The Art of Knowing

Today I had a conversation with Dan about a quote I read on FB. His response was that the quote had originated with someone else. He said, “I KNOW. I mean, I don’t know, but I KNOW.”  (We looked it up and he was right, so he did KNOW.)

Which meant, quite simply, that he followed his intuitionn (until he actually knew). Which is something I often admonish people to do, in real life and in my blog. (Although Dan needed no prodding from me in this regard.) We had a discussion about what we know, based on facts and learning, and what we know, because our guts tell us it is true.

Later on, I found this quote by Rumi on the same subject.

The art of knowing

Rumi says it is helpful to know what to ignore, if you want to actually know things. True. Like it is helpful to ignore the lies people tell you, or the drama they create to get you to believe things that aren’t true. And that….comes from your gut, your intuition, does it not?

It’s important to know what you know, to know what you don’t know, and to ignore what you are asked to believe that just doesn’t sit in your psyche comfortably. The truth rings. If it doesn’t, it’s probably bullshit.

Just some thoughts for today. Love and light everyone.

  1. I know what you think, I think I know what you mean.
    More importantly, I think you know I’m mean. So break out the light sabre and cut the bullshitters off at the knees. If it were up to me, you would cut them a little higher.
    But you knew that! As usual, retribution to all.
