Dear Open Heart Project,

This is a time for warriors to step forward! I’m talking about you. As someone who is willing to work with their mind and expand their connection to stillness, you are automatically qualified.

Recent posts have discussed the warrior’s presence and qualities. They are broken-hearted. They are unafraid of sorrow and unafraid of joy. Today, I suggest that they are also brave enough to embrace the mind of not-knowing. Why? Because we don’t know…what the future holds, why people do what they do, what the solutions are, and so on. Rather than seeking solace in despair (yes, it can actually feel more comfortable than uncertainty) or in forced positivity, the warrior looks for the wisdom in the moment rather than (or in addition to) opinions or philosophies.

Please have a listen to learn more and, as always, share your responses! I always love to hear from you.

And while you’re at it, please feel free to suggest topics you’d like me to cover in future videos. I’d really appreciate that.

Love, Susan

    So interesting as recently I have had that sense of “not knowing” what to do in many ways. And here you are talking about not knowing. Thank you for your wise guidance.

    Having an attitude of curiosity seems to really open the door for genuine interactions. A therapist named Insoo Kim Berg was famous for bringing a curious mind to mental health practice. It seems to invite response, with judgment suspended, with the implication of genuine interest. I have noticed that sometimes people with passionate views try very hard to rope others into their passion, demanding echoes of their position. That seems so small and closed – your teaching is a good reminder to adopt the spaciousness of not knowing. Thank you.
