Understanding makes us too certain
fooling us into thinking that our understanding is complete.
Not knowing that to truly understand
means to discover the rough edges,
around what we think, believe, and see.
Filling them in with new bits of knowledge, over and over,
that continue to expand the picture that we see.
Powerfully changing our perspective over time
with what we thought we first knew.
Giving us the power to make more effective choices
when we give ourselves a chance to see.
