In the case of yesterday's blog, the topic carried over into my monthly Conscious Cup meeting where another take to the "I don't know" phrase was brought up. It was the view of a broader philosophy, much like the saying "the older I get the less I know." We discussed how important it is in some situations to be able to admit you don't know the answer.
I believe both sides are so important and the difference is all in the energy of it. Because the first scenario happened to me personally, I can truly say without judgment that I was using the expression not from a place of wisdom but of a place of fear and avoidance. It happens. It is part of my human experience and it helps me to grow when I become mindful of these little habits. Yet I fully accept that there are also times, particularly between being a coach and also spending time with children, that is it more powerful and more brave to admit that I do not hold all the information.
I'm so grateful for such a wonderful group of people that make it out to Conscious Cup. I'm grateful for other perspectives that show me a broader view and even those that challenge my own view. I'm grateful for the growth I feel and the stimulation of the mind through these discussions. And I'm grateful that everyone there speaks from a heart space and holds space for each other whether they agree or not. It is a beautiful and powerful thing to witness and be a part of each month. I'm so grateful to expand my previous thoughts and admit that bit of tunnel vision that shows up sometimes.
Who do you have in your life that helps challenge or expand your views? What can you admit that you do not know? And does it make a difference who you are admitting it to? May you be blessed with peace and love today. May you find yourself surrounded by good friends and open conversation. Have a beautiful day!
