    It means, what you don't know, cant harm you. 

     a similar phrase is, " what the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve over".

    It is saying/meaning that sometimes pretending a bad thing isn't there is worth the temporary moment of relaxing away from it.

    That can be true and it can also be reckless. 

    We do sometimes worry too much about a matter... even if it is a real matter... but we can also get careless about one, too.

    It means people are happy when they don't know about upsetting information.

    Not knowing certain things can help contribute to a person's happiness.  Think about it:  if you're a baby, and you didn't know that there was a war going on in the world outside, you'd still be cooing and giggling when the kitty jumps around, chasing a wind-up toy.

           The term was actually coined as a phrase by an "enlightened" human, once You become enlightened i.e. knowing specifically TWO very important truths, ...

        one about the nature of this world, & one about the nature if one's own existence, & inevitable non-existence, ...

         You start to realize A WHOLE LOT of other truths, like the fact that You will some day die, cease to exist, & so will humanity, this world, etc. 

            You also start to realize that the people who REALLY run this planet, have known those two truths, & MANY more, since before the so called beginning of recorded history that They forcibly teach Us all in school/church (Their' sIaves in Their' eyes), which is quite literally ALL a bunch of lies to keep Us occupied mentally with meaningless crap like patriotism, racism, prejudices, taking sides in bipartisan political scripted nonsense, thinking other countries are enemies, worrying about Our lives in ridiculous ways, etc. ...

        ALL to blind Us from the facts... Facts like those free mason, illuminate, rich 1%er panty wastes are Our TRUE enemies, & They not only made everything that sucks in this world happen, They intentionally perpetuate bad happenings, & sit back, and laugh at how the masses react to such evils. Things like creating a plague in a laboratory, & trying to use that pandemic to exterminate a large portion of this (in Their' minds) over populated world of useless apes, Who're MUCH easier to manipulate in smaller numbers!      Not knowing all of these things makes You a mindsIave drone, BUT a much happier one (blissful)!

          I intentionally left out the TWO truths You must realize for enlightenment, it is for each person to find out for Themselves, & if You get told them prematurely, You won't believe those truths are true...

    It means if you don’t know something then you don’t have to worry about it or be concerned about it, you can live a happy blissful life because you are uninformed, uneducated, and ignorant of things.

    It means that what you don't know can't hurt you.  However, it sometimes can surprise you and bite you in the butt.  It is far better to be educated.
