Maria’s Midweek Mindfulness Moments

Becoming aware that ‘you don’t know’ what you don’t know’ is like having a veil removed from your eyes.

Realising this gives you more opportunities for learning, growth and development. Your way of processing things will change forever and become authentic.

Being able to consciously communicate your feelings and needs without intellectualising or rationalising is incredibly empowering.

It has the power to free you from life patterns that are unhelpful or limiting.

Remaining unaware of what we don’t know is to disconnect from the intuitive self. Intellectualising problems, ignoring or taking the path of least resistance is a strategy which limits authenticity. When it doesn’t even occur to us to ask for a better way or we’re not aware that we’re in a rut, the short-term strategy of avoidance can lead to longer-term outcomes like depression and addictions.

At the same time, it is important to be careful what you wish for – this way of being will leave you with more questions than answers because it is like pulling at a thread which has the potential to unravel the whole and you could find yourself examining the meaning and purpose of some of your choices and your personal or professional relationships.

The path to authenticity and fulfilment is all about change. Positive change requires conscious awareness

If ‘You don’t know what you don’t know’ how can you live an authentic life?
