To which I replied “I don’t know!
He then said: “But you must know what you don’t know”
“Of course I don’t know what I don’t know. Because if I knew then I wouldn’t Not know!” I replied!
It was a bizarre conversation. Funny, yes. The poor lad seemed to have great issues with understanding the concept!
OK I could claim I don’t know about Nuclear Physics – but that’s not actually true. I don’t UNDERSTAND Nuclear Physics but I do KNOW about it. It’s not the same thing!!
Today I feel I’m being asked to be passionate about something I don’t know. To take a step over the cliff into the unknown and to feel committed to doing so.
Will I fly, or will I fall? Will I need a parachute or will I be OK? To take that step I have to feel 100% secure that the outcome of that step – that step over the cliff edge – won’t land me in an alien environment which I have no control over. That I will be safe. Just now I don’t know if I can do that. Let alone feel passionate about doing so.
But apparently – according to the LC – this is what I have to do. Anyway that’s what he’s asking me to do. To be committed to making changes in how I think and view my life. To be totally committed to this. To be passionate about this. To say what I want to change and why.
Until I can commit – with a passion – then the LC sessions are on hold. So it appears a stalemate has ensued! Goodness knows what happens next!!
You see, I don’t know if I can. As I said at the start of this post. I don’t know what I don’t know. And in this case I don’t know what I’m being asked to do. I don’t know what I want to change. If I did I would have done it! And because I don’t know I can’t.
