Who knows?

We have a sure spiritual response to uncertainty or despair  : God knows.

Questions, both minor and momentous, fill our days. Where did I put my phone? What shall I do or say? Can this sickness be healed? When will the world find peace? 

Sometimes we figure things out on our own. But when answers don’t come, resignation can creep in. “Who knows?” becomes not an honest question but a defeated shrug. 

Resignation was my default for a long time, especially when hoped-for events or solutions didn’t happen. Being passively reconciled to whatever transpired felt better than anguish and frustration, yet it never brought happiness. And that’s what I really wanted.
