What Matters

The most important thing is what? The most important thing is What. What do I know? What don’t I know? What do I think? What is right? What is wrong? What is time? What is space? What are you? What am I?

What we think we know interferes with our ability to know. It is amazing what we think we know. We think we can read people’s minds. We think we know what motivates others. We think other people can read our minds. We think we know what is good for us and for them. We think we understand all kinds of things that we don’t understand. That is why what matters so much. What is the wrecking ball that can blast through our jumped-to conclusions.

If somebody tells you something that upsets you, rather than getting angry, you can ask them what they mean.  What opens the door to understanding. Asking what is genuine. If you ask what two or three times in a row, you will usually find that the other person doesn’t know exactly what they are talking about either.

What is the gateway to the unknown. What’s the matter?  What’s the matter.
