It's tricky. We have to know what we are doing, and we have no idea of what we are doing, so we have to know that we do not know what we are doing, and focus on knowing what we know. We have to know what we know in each situation as it arises. Discounting, dismissing, disregarding, ignoring nothing without knowing that we are doing it, and doing it consciously, deliberately, intentionally, like with the noise and complexity that are interfering with our ability to know what we know without adding anything substantive/helpful to the situation as a whole. Knowing what we know, and what we do not know, is essential knowing. And we have to know at least that much all of the time. Which means spending a lot of time with the right kind of emptiness, stillness and silence. The Quakers seem to understand this, even though they don't articulate it at all. They are just quiet, trusting that to be enough. Quiet in the right kind of way is enough. Just being quiet, not so much. Being quiet in the right kind of way opens us to the wonder of silence, stillness and emptiness. To the wonder of the moment. to the wonder of being alive. And opens us to the experience of life being lived here/now. Deepening, expanding, enlarging the experience of the moment to include all there is in the moment, which is everything, all at once, here/now. And what needs to be done about it, in response to it, based on what we know of it and what is called for in response to it. This is the kind of knowing that knows. Be there. Do that. In each situation as it arises, your entire life long.
