Sometimes our demand for a black or white answer from the universe is met with gray. Often we find ourselves struggling and frustrated because we don't receive a clear signal about what is happening or what will happen. We want to know andwe want to know that we know. Yet life is much more like a rose which unfolds its petals from within outwardly in a multifoliate way than a chess match of logical sequences with a clear-cut winner and loser. There are times when we simply can't know— no matter how hard we try— the outcome of a situation. When we come to realize this, we can relax, let go of our need to know and simply let ourselves enjoy the process of living with ambiguity.
