The fool is the pilgrim, the unwitting wise one. The fool represents our unconscious self, naïve, simple, gullible. To begin the journey toward enlightenment and integration of self, one must first become the fool, seeing things from the outside, detached, childlike and trusting. (If we were fully aware of just how difficult the seeker’s path can be, we might choose not to quest at all!)
So true that last statement is .. some things are just not meant for us to know.. otherwise looking back in your life how many times would you have chosen not to do something .. and then there would be a lesson left unlearned.. growth would have been delayed.. We need to learn to let go of the control we don’t have but crave.. we have this thing about “needing to know” … so much of our life we don’t truly enjoy because of that “needing to know” .. we get obsessed with wanting and needing to know every step and every phase that is or might be coming our way .. we end up trying to control our future and forget to live in the here and now.. so much time is then wasted and not lived and certainly not enjoyed.. and that is a true shame ..
