Being in the ‘Don’t Know’ Space

By Rhiannon Griffiths

You know that thing when you go somewhere + all of the quotes, readings, teachings or asanas seem to be made just for you, speaking directly to your soul, giving you exactly what you need at the right time? Well that was me, Kanti Freeman’s Divine Harmony yin yoga day this weekend…

.

Long-hold poses to gently move the (previously) stagnant Qi in the Liver + Gall Bladder meridians (channels), helpfully working with the Wood Element + it’s frustrated eclipse-related restlessness, plus accompanying Buddhist wisdom about “not knowing” – all themes I had discussed in my vlog this week…

.

“We don’t always trust it because it can be difficult + uncomfortable to walk the way of not knowing… (Yet) ‘don’t know’ is very good for cutting through doubt…

.

When the mind is constantly trying to solve problems that it can’t solve properly, we can find ourselves in a very small world, a world that is tight, predictable. It is very important to be with the open mind, the ‘don’t know’ mind.

.

When we say ‘don’t know’, nothing has changed externally, but internally we have suddenly stopped sticking to the idea that we SHOULD know, that we MUST know… And we’ve also stopped our loyalty to the opposite idea, the despair of worrying that we will never know… So we just sit quietly on our (meditation) cushions + just notice…” – Ajahn Sundara

.

So, as the beautiful Kanti asked us during the session, can you be ok with just sitting in the not knowing?

.

In full transparency, my Water Element + it’s love of safety, certainty + control, really makes TRUSTING the unknown, staying in the ‘don’t know’ space, a real challenge for me… It’s scary + unfamiliar… I’m learning + growing in this eclipse season, the moon isn’t giving me any other choice!

.

P.S. my parents bought me back this sweet little Buddha (in the phot above) from their trip to Vietnam + Cambodia earlier this year… My sisters got biscuits, I got a Buddha, obvs…
