I can think about the future, thinking "this" will lead to "that", but how can I possibly know that? It's possible that it may not be that way, things
could change, unforeseen circumstances could arise, but because I believe I "know", I will cause myself to suffer believing in false expectations.
It is better to Accept it because whether or not it is "denied" it will still be there.
If you believe you are ignorant, then you are wise because you are understanding your limits.
If you believe yourself to be wise, then you are ignorant because you do not see your limitations.
One who understands that they know nothing, is more wise than one who thinks they know everything.
Ignorance is bliss because it frees you from illusions (false knowledge), opinions (biases/judgments), and assumptions.
To make assumptions, form opinions (judgments, biases - especially to a whole group) is to pretend to know something that one could not know for
"I don't know for sure",
"How could I know that?",
These four phrases seem to be very powerful.
