bay witch musings

…when in prayer, Doubt.

I can live with doubt, and uncertainty, and not knowing. I think it’s much
more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be
wrong. I have approximate answers, and possible beliefs, and different
degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure of
anything, and in many things I don’t know anything about, such as whether it
means anything to ask why we’re here, and what the question might mean. I
might think about a little, but if I can’t figure it out, then I go to
something else. But I don’t have to know an answer. I don’t feel frightened
by not knowing things, by being lost in a mysterious universe without having
any purpose, which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell, possibly.
It doesn’t frighten me.

– Richard Feynman
