Welcoming the Unknowing

by- Oscar Nelson on January 26th, 2014

So today I woke up feeling uneasy and restless. An aimless, ungraspable intensity to do something that felt so pressing but just out of reach flavored the morning in a grasping melancholy. A push to “do” without an aim or a goal. So what do we do with that Unknowing that takes us at times? What do we do with that energy that wants to create but is diffused, and without a set medium to create from.

Welcome this Unknowing.

It came to me as the only option. That Unknowing itself became a teacher of sorts. It showed the lack of knowledge in what I would usually do to fulfill others “should’s” of what was expected of me. With no pull from others I felt like a balloon with no string. A cloud with no substance. I realized that it is just the uncomfortable transition to being truly me. There is a learning that has to happen when we step out of the confines that have always held us. There is a vastness to this new freedom that is so ungrounded and uncomfortable. Like life itself, these new boundless states need practice to become comfortable. To become known.

Until then, I will welcome the Unknown as a friend and teacher. Because it is only by moving beyond what is comfortable and usual can we grow. And for a better focus, growth is a goal most worthy to pursue.

  1. I tend not to leave a comment, but I glanced through a few responses
    here My Blog | Welcoming the Unknowing.
    I actually do have a few questions for you if you
    do not mind. Is it only me or does it seem like some of these responses look like
    they are written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting
    on other places, I’d like to keep up with anything new
    you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do
    with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead
    of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.
    I’ll definitely be back.
