“There are known unknowns”

~Donald Rumsfeld

Does something like the “unknown” even exist? The knowns were once unknown and maybe in incognisant ways, we step into “unknown” situations every day. I believe the “unknown” is a place you’ll become used to someday, the “unknown” is a person you’ll find the most comfort in someday and I believe the unknown is a feeling you’ll want to experience every day. Right this second, something is waiting to be known, to be explored, and we’ll always keep pushing the boundaries of the unknown to get there. The unknown is limitless, just like one’s desire to know more. But as Pema Chödrön says, “Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all”, we’ll never really know everything. Something will always be unknown to us or maybe the unknown lies within you? And you’ll know it when the time permits.
