Pinch of Spice: The Danger of Knowing

Door, Saidpur

How can knowing be dangerous?

One of the greatest mistakes that I seem to keep making in my life is to think I have the answer.  I’ve discovered that there is great danger in thinking I know something…anything.  Let’s just look at it.  From the minute you know something and you have an answer, then that particular door to that subject closes and the door to any other possibility regarding that subject is closed.

And when that door is closed and some new bit of information or insight comes your way, then the Universe looks over and sees the closed door so it says, “Oh, that person is handled.  They already know.  I don’t have to send any answers their way.”  And then the answers and insights drift on to find another door, one that’s open.

And I’m left there with all my closed doors, going deeper and deeper into the maze of mind and farther and farther from Truth and Openness and Beauty.

Here’s your soul spice assignment for this week...

Take 10 minutes each day to look for your closed doors.  Notice what areas of your life are not working, anywhere that you are not experiencing joy and love.  Ask yourself the questions,

  • What doors have I closed in this area of my life?
  • Where do I have answers that may be closing doors to greater knowing?
  • What do I already know regarding this situation that is keeping me from my higher good?
  • Am I willing to open all closed doors in my life?
  • Am I willing to un-know everything that I know, think I know, or know I know?”

Take 10 extra minutes to just rest in the Beauty and expansiveness that are available when you begin to open closed doors.
