Here’s to being unprofessional, not knowing, not being the expert… letting go of assumptions, fixed views, perceptions, judgements and ideas in favor of….going on a pilgrimage!
in China, there was a teacher named Dizang who had a student named Fayan. Dizang saw Fayan all dressed in his traveling clothes, with his straw sandals and his staff, and a pack on his back, and Dizang said, “Where are you going?” Fayan answered, “Around on a pilgrimage.” Dizang said, “What is the purpose of pilgrimage?” Fayan said, “I don’t know.” Dizang said, “Not knowing is nearest.”…. translated as not knowing is most intimate…not knowing is nearest and most intimate.
Here’s to getting off the plateau of stagnancy in the known and jumping into the galaxy of darkness as vast as outer space. So much for right or wrong.
