The Unknown Sets You Free!

The Unknown Sets You Free!



Did you ever find yourself trying to control the things in your life? You want to control what’s going to happen next. You want to know everything in advance, you want to know what the future holds for you…


Have you ever thought of any of these? :) If your answer is yes, welcome to the club. wink The club where every single human being has been!!


Let me tell you a story then and show you how the unknown actually sets us free. wink

Finally, you feel like you broke all your chains, you left your baggage, passed the passport control, got into the plane and sat down on your seat. Took a deep breath in and exhaled… and are about to start a new chapter of your life. Then you put a song into your ears and just connect with your soul...


Immediately, you had a big smile on your face even though you were going to the unknown in your life. You had no idea where you were going to stay for the next couple months, you didn’t know who you were going to share the apartment with and even your room. But all those unknowns were making you so excited, happy, almost like you wanna jump in the plane with all the curiosity and joy you have. Instead you start writing how you feel on your computer. You spent the 13 hours of flight with joy and high energy without sleeping a minute. laugh

While the plane was landing at the LAX airport, another miraculous moment happened. Your heart expanded and your chest got bigger but this time it didn’t have just joy and excitement. This time you had an incredible peace like you were landing where you belong to…

After you passed all the controls and got your luggage, you were about to get into the unknown. And you hadn’t known that the unknown will never end in your life.

As humans we think the unknown is something to fight with or escape from it. And we think the unknown can only happen when you take risks or when things get out of control in your life. Like in the story you just got involved in the feelings I had 5 years ago. And at that time, it was a big risk in my life but I thought I already took the risk so my life should be easier and more clear than before. I thought when I learnt English and got a job, my life was going to be known. However, it wasn’t the case, and it never was going to be. I had one after another, always unknown and I had to take another risk or face more unknowns.


4 years in I almost got everything I dreamt in the US. I launched my business, I had a car, I became fluent in English, I created a community. And I thought my life was going to be known like how I set up. But in 2020, everything I built started to be removed from my life. And that painful experience taught me the best lesson that I’d ever learnt and that was the unknown sets you free Burcu. You are free from everything you can ever have or lose in your life. You are not attached to anything materialistic you have in this world. You are also not attached to the country you live in. you are you and your soul has always been free. I had to move back to Turkey and almost burnt my whole in the US that I created in 4 years. I sold my car, I threw away my clothes, I couldn’t even say goodbye to my people.


I got into a plane where it was all dark inside, people were wearing masks and everybody was so anxious and scared even because we didn’t know where we were going to stay for the next 14 days in quarantine.


The moment I realized that everything in our lives is unknown and that sets us free. You are not attached to anything, the belongings you have, the country you live in. You are already a free soul. Because think about when you know everything in your life. When you are going to have everything you dream of, when you will travel the place you want, even when you know when you will die, … You wouldn’t be free to live your life. You would always think about the next event that was going to happen in your life and you would always live your life depending on those…


You haven’t known but you are already a free soul and the unknown sets you free!
