Beyond knowing, beyond understanding

Our knowing and understanding, our world views and causal order, are parts of our reality beyond which are what we do not or cannot know and understand – beyond our mind’s grasp and the reach of our senses.

Our wants and worries also extend beyond those we can know and understand. Our aspirations and ideals, our desires and expectations, our plans and past similarly extend beyond our knowing and understanding.

We keep to what we understand and know and seek more that is yet beyond our reach. Left behind in our wake is our unknowing or not-knowing and what we do not understand.

Denied from our knowing and understanding is our whole being also –
who encompasses both our knowing and understanding, and not, of both our wants and worries,
who is more than the sum of his/her parts,
who includes our self in experience of some of his/her parts,
and who is beyond our knowing and sense, and our unknowing and non–sense.

Our unconditional truth is in being a part of the whole body, created and placed by him/her as projected actuality. In our actuality, we are beyond what we may know or understand.

Miracle and knowledge

Miracle is that it is happening – the whole body alive in creation in reality.

That we can separate our individual selves from our whole, to decide what’s going on and what to do within our projected reality, could be an added miracle, but only if we can appreciate our reality as a part.

Fear makes us hold to the sure thing – to what works and what we know. There’s no time to contemplate when pressed to act. Then we stay there, even when the threat or what caused the need to act are gone. We become lost in our knowing, within our reality, isolated from reality.

It’s just like Adam and Eve having eaten from the tree of knowledge, but we can understand our part and return to our place, if we can relate with the whole self. We must understand, for we are lost in knowing.

We must loosen our hold – from where we float identified with our reality, there is back, around and underneath. The whole body needs to extend and fill because he or she has been committed to our part and compromised to support our way. Then beyond our efforts and divergences, which can only be limited in our knowing reality, we must relate with who is beyond our part, beyond unknowing or mystery.  He or she is our whole in reality.
