POST SCRIPT TO ORGANIZING, OR, IF YOU DON’T KNOW YOU HAVE IT, YOU DON’T HAVE IT


I stumbled upon the literal and metaphoric truth of this as I went through the cupboards and saw that I had many things I had written on my list to buy. If I don’t know or remember where something is, then it’s as good as not having it. This applies to things, knowledge, wisdom, truth and is deeply connected with memory and consciousness. We have not only to know something, but to know we know it. Here is an example: you might have powers of endurance, courage, love, strength, wisdom, insight, creativity, etc, but if you don’t know where they are (in you, easily accessible, just a thought, a memory away) you’ll feel and worry you don’t have them.
