Knowing What Cannot Be Known

Knowing What Cannot Be Known?

Dear Wisdom,

Please help us to derive maximum benefits from the concept out of the Tao te Ching:

“Knowing what cannot be known––what a lofty aim! Not knowing what needs to be known––what a terrible result!” verse 71

Please explain this paradoxical statement above. Thank YOU!

Care to comment, Wisdom?


One could spend their whole life pondering who and what is God and not even scratch the surface of explaining even the tiniest bit of God’s glory.

Most don’t want to give up a day of the week, or even an hour contemplating the Source of all Life.

With arrogance does man think they know the definition of God.

One might not fully understand God, but to focus throughout life on the Creator’s gifts opens to a sense of gratitude.

*Man’s soul wants to learn more about the facets of God.

The human would rather spend time on all of the distractions life has to offer.

*A wise man’s aim is to not critique or judge God but to be a friend.

The friendship blossoms into becoming lovers.

Those that spend their life trying to prove God doesn’t exist miss out on God’s gift of joy and filling the void humans are born with because only God has the key.

Open the heart to receive this treasure.

            Thank you so much, Wisdom, in love.

            You are welcome little “pink guava”.

Pink guavas have a center that is soft with many seeds.

You discovered that part of the fruit tasted like a soft banana.

The seeds are not broken down in the stomach but still serve a purpose.

They cause the intestinal tract to become more active in trying to flush out the system.

The guava is a healthy tool in flushing out the system.

Some systems utilize fruit more fully in the morning.

Eating fruit later in the day, for these people, disrupts the enzymes in the stomach.

Being extreme about anything throws off some part of the system.

Enjoy the fresh fruit.

They are a gift from God.
