I don't know

posted Mar 05, 2015 19:39:55 by Tim M
I don't Know.. That's my problem. I can't believe if I don't know. I want so much to believe that Erik can reach into this world, and intervene in peoples' lives. I want to believe that Jamie possesses these wonderful gifts, and shares them with the world. If I could know, I could believe. I find that I can't have Faith in that which I don't know. Faith isn't substance. Never thought I'd say it, but I need an intervention. Something. Erik's name in the steam on my mirror, or in the white sand of my little Zen garden. Something tangible. Knowing would change everything. I need to know.

A wise man knows he knows nothing. Sounds like you have a good start. Might ought to look into that zen garden a little more. Let go of the "need" to know. Now that's Zen. :)

Thank you for your reply. I value your feedback. The desire to Know has been with me since I was a little boy. Maybe "need" is not the right word. But it is strong, and getting stronger. My ultimate fear is that the Amazing Randis of the world are right. Know what I mean? That's worse than the Boogie Man under the bed!

lol James Randi IS the boogie man under the bed. It's not a need to know that plagues you, it's doubt of what your soul already know to be true.

"I can't believe if I don't know." Well, knowing kind of defeats the purpose in believing, no?

Irrefutable proof of the spirit world does not exist at this time. But then again, neither does irrefutable proof for evolution, the materialist model of consciousness, or our current model of physics.

You can't even prove that everything you see before your eyes is real - it could all be a hallucination.

Literally, the only thing you can possibly know for sure is that you "know" nothing. Belief is all you have.

Thank you once again for your time and reply. I appreciate the conversation, and I think it could go on....maybe not necessarily in this forum. Again, I don't know. I don't think that knowing would defeat the purpose of believing. It would empower belief. You said that proof of the spirit world does not exist at this time. I'm sure that there are those who have had first-hand experiences who may not agree. It's that first-hand experience that I want. And you are right...I know that I don't know. But I don't have belief. Hope, maybe. Tim

That's the thing though - first hand experiences are not scientifically proven experiences. They are subjective to the individual, and thus, are at their core, beliefs. We might call it "knowing" but that "knowing" is relative to us and our experiences. Two people may have the exact same paranormal experience, which might turn one into a believer and the other will still find a way to dismiss it... because they do not believe.

Everything we think we know is really just a belief that we hold. From who we think we are right down to the idea that we won't fall right through the chair when we sit on it. Belief is what creates our reality at the most basic level.

Thank you. May I call you InMy? I understand what you are saying, and it makes sense. I just want to be one of those two people to have such an experience so I can interpret the experience into my reality.

You can call me Ash :)

And there's a famous saying - Before you can learn anything, you must admit you know nothing. Kind of along the lines of "A wise man knows he knows nothing."

It's a reference to the "unlearning" that happens in the beginning of a spiritual awakening and throughout the entire process really, as you realize that everything you thought you "knew" is inside out and backward. You have to throw away all of your old notions of reality in order to make room for new information.

Through that process, you will find that your need to know diminishes, and your faith grows stronger. It's just a natural part of the process, because throughout the process you are shedding fear, and fear is the root of doubt.

Thank you again, Ash. I feel a need to give some personal history about my journey over the last 2 and a half years, but on the other hand...why? This forum is requesting facilitation from Erik, and my request is still out there....I will join you on your facebook site. There's more to say, but I'm at a loss.....
