Love happens when you least expect it

But don’t most things worth talking about happen when we least expect them to?

The unexpected job promotion? The unexpected traffic on your commute to work? The unexpected proposal? The unexpected kind gesture from a stranger?

I’m not sure we need any more dating apps — any more attempts to make love certain. The market is saturated. But it would seem we need more ways to cope with uncertainty, as Eckhart Tolle makes clear in his book, Stillness Speaks:

“Become at ease with the state of “not knowing.” This takes you beyond mind because the mind is always trying to conclude and interpret. It is afraid of not knowing. So, when you can be at ease with not knowing, you have already gone beyond the mind. A deeper knowing that is non-conceptual then arises out of that state.”
