Stop believing, start knowing.

What do you know? What do you really, truly know about yourself, humanity, and the cosmic context in which our stunningly beautiful planet is set? Why are you here? Why are we here? Where are we going? Is our presence haphazard and our purpose socially constructed? Or are our lives set in a larger, purposeful, meaningful whole?

Such questions usually lead to people to discussion about belief in God or gods on the one hand, and the foolishness of this notion on the other. This tiresome debate–whether we were created or whether we emerged on the scene by chance and evolved along the lines of the survival of the fittest–is a red herring. When it comes to the revelation of your true purpose on earth, whether or not you believe in God is irrelevant because your relationship with higher purpose is not a matter a belief; it is a matter of knowing.

Knowing, as opposed to believing, is absolute and unconditional. In knowing, there is no question, no doubt, no second hedging. Whether you truly believe in God or you just do so just in case God exists is beside the point. Belief is a bridge, a willingness to leave the door open, to knowing, but knowing, in the sense of being one with, is the only way to break free of the misguided notion of separation that has become the norm in human consciousness.

The question is, then, how do I know? How do I move from this state of believing into the state of knowing, truly knowing? My advice: stop trying and start letting.


Stop trying to know and start letting. Trying implies struggling with the unknown and struggle with implies subjection to (in this case, the unknown).

To know you must let.
