Living with the Unknowable

“The ability to live with seeming contradictions,

and the ambivalence and tensions these contradictions create,

is what gives rise to wisdom.

The messes are the point.”

Rabbi Irwin Kula’s message reassures us that not all questions can- or should be-answered. Sometimes we must accept that certain things are unknowable, and we must live with the resulting questions. To do so can enlarge the scope of what is possible.
