10 thoughts on “A quote by Yoav Gilad

    1. Thanks Lisa. Although it will probably take us longer, it becomes more beneficial when we can work out why.

      That way we’re not so frustrated; or it’s not so frustrating as you suggest.

  1. I agree. It’s better to know rather than speculate, but what we think we know is often modified by the truth because science evolves.

    So, I’m wondering if I know what this quote really means.

    1. You always leave food for thought and I love that. Thanks Tim.

      In all probability if our thoughts were to concur with that of the universe, we would learn to know rather than wonder. I agree with you that science does evolve and although it does; I’m not sure it evolves that quickly that it would cause us a problem.

      We wonder because we fail to see the bigger picture and in doing so also fail to find an answer on what we’re dealing with. From my own experience and from what I know when we speculate at something we invariably speculate wrongly.

      We all need to know and be sure about something without the use of speculation and that’s what most of us find difficult. In the end we’re often left with just wonder.

  2. There is a saying that ‘ignorance is bliss’, but my view is it is always better knowing as that way you can make appropriate decisions, even if that decision is to do nothing.

  3. I don’t care if knowing is sometimes painful, but I prefer to assess what I know and find a solution for it, or come to peace with it.

    Wondering what it is just causes me to be anxious and disables my ability to focus on other things going on in my life.

    1. Thanks Maria. Ditto on your thoughts and you’re right.

      I too believe we must always assess what we know so that we find a possible solution to the problem or issue, because not to brings about more stress; or puts what we possibly have to deal with on the back burner and that never works, long term.

      Issues tend to come back when we’re struggling in other areas of our lives. In that regard it becomes even more important to know rather than wonder or even speculate.

  4. I also think it’s better to know because then we can adjust accordingly to find a solution to something.

    Everything happens for a reason I believe, so we have to take things as they come.

    1. Thanks Maria. Absolutely! I also believe things happen for a reason.

      What I know is that if we continue to put our faith into the universe and be guided by its laws, we will always believe everything happens for a reason. I often feel comforted by that.
