“i don’t know” (january 2009)

Posted: July 21, 2010 in Uncategorized

the three words, that when combined, form the most honest statement.

“I DON’T KNOW” is free of pride, free of pretension, free of all defense and is non-offensive. It is said and meant at the same time. It is simply as it is. No underlying meaning, no need to dissect for some sort of meaning. You simply just don’t know.

And what’s wrong with that? Nothing. Absolutely positively nothing. Not knowing is fully human. It’s just that most of us don’t want to admit that we don’t know everything. That we haven’t “been there, done that” all the time. There’s a whole lot that we don’t know. More often than not we get hit by something we thought we already knew but then again, not really.

There are far more things in this life, in this world that we’re unaware of as opposed to actually knowing. Ignorance and unawareness is not a crime. Claiming to know everything, on the other hand, can be.

I DON’T KNOW.

It’s liberating. It’s human. It’s forgivable. It’s the truth.

I DON’T KNOW.

It’s perfect in it’s imperfection.

I DON’T KNOW.

Music to my ears.

“It’s not what you know. It’s not what you do. Stop showing off. Stop showing off. It’s what you are that matters.”
