434 – I do not know

I wish I could find answers for all the unanswered questions I have. It seems that the older I grow the less I know. I will not pester or trouble you, but I will share with you.

One day, Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. Which road do I take? She asked. Where do you want to go? Was his response. I don’t know, Alice answered. Then said the Cat, it doesn’t matter. – Lewis Carroll.

Do we not face such a dilemma?

Who are you? said the Caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied rather shyly, “I – I hardly think I know, Sir, just at present – at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have changed several times since then”. “What do you mean by that”? said the Caterpillar sternly. “Explain yourself.” “I can’t explain myself, I’m afraid, Sir”, said Alice, “because I am not myself, you see.” – Lewis Carroll

It is true, we are all like Alice changing throughout the day and what we must practice is self-observation.
