As I experienced many times before, things keep coming back to you in different forms, until you notice them and absorb the truth they are bearing for YOU now. Yesterday I had a text exchange with a friend, also a Zen Coach like me. And she said in the last text: 'Let's see how things go. Let's enjoy the NOT knowing for now.' A few days ago I was reading about the acceptance of NOT KNOWING in a book. Not knowing if your decision was right, not knowing what to do, not knowing as a whole bunch of things you have no answer to in your life right now.

   It is almost a social obligation in most cultures to KNOW, or to do something about not knowing immediately, the sooner the better etc. whereas NOT KNOWING is present in our lives and not given enough attention and acknowledgement. This is where we meet our own vulnerability, patience, trust and inner peace. How about facing all this in you? How about saying 'hello' to your NOT KNOWING today? Embracing it and giving yourself enough time to just be with it for a while, to explore it, to notice possibilities and to see what could work for you. After all, NOT KNOWING is a natural state of Being :-) And trust will be part of the exploration in my next workshop in Preston, UK. Have a peaceful NOW wherever you are, Kasia xx

Hi hi, I bet you can imagine the patients reactions to when the doctor doesnt KNOW...

Guess it depends on where the patient is in his or her development and how serious a given problem is. But personally, I have never experienced a medical doctor openly admitting to me as a patient that they DON'T KNOW something. I guess they can always suggest more tests are needed before they can say they KNOW :-) But I did meet/coach/be friends of doctors who are aware of areas of NOT KNOWING in their personal lives...

Actually I admit that almost daily, when I dont know, as a doctor and more and more allow the patient their individual reaction.  Guess it also depends on how I say it. Most patients appreciate honesty and that you really listen and care and then try to help them in every possible way. Most patients understand that there are limits to what doctors know and can do, but sometimes they feel really desperate and I can understand that.

The more I accept that I cant KNOW everything, the easier my life becomes. Thank you for pointing out something really wise!

Really glad you found something that spoke to you in my post. I wish you were my GP :-)
