We have heard that “ignorance is bliss,” and we usually judge and criticize ignorant people. Yet there is a form of ignorance that serves us well, and that is ignorance of limiting beliefs.
A Calvin and Hobbes cartoon declared, “It’s not denial. I’m just selective about the reality I accept.” Every reality is available to you and you can easily step into a bigger universe if you but drop your beliefs of what you can’t do.
If you think you know it all, and what you have learned is “the only truth”, you cut yourself off from all the truth grander than the one you currently know.
