Uncertainty–An Obstacle to Courage


“Uncertainty is one of twelve obstacles that gnaws and manipulates us, many times without us knowing it. This unknowing creates a spiraling of unnecessary suffering—suffering that could have been prevented if there had been no attachments to the outcome. Attachment, like the word courage, is old French, attaché, meaning “nailed to.”  If instead we choose an appreciation for the present, we will not be nailed to future “things” that might elude us to think we have control. Besides, every day is a day of uncertainty. Only the ego mistakenly believes that you have a schedule set in stone when you walk out the door to go to work. Why? The ego strives for certainty.”
