Uncertainty in Life
If every experience in life is meaningful...
Are you certain you should be here?
Below is a little essay I wrote on Thursday 12th April 1973 - thirty nine years ago! It’s called ‘Thoughts.’
If every experience in life is meaningful then what is the meaning of uncertainty? Answer: uncertainty develops sensitivity – and this sensitivity stems from insecurity.
Knowing the effectiveness of my intelligence as compared with the great minds of Antiquity, I must presume that by reason alone I will never get any closer to the meaning to existence than any other earnest seeker. Mind, it seems, is a tool to be used in all manner of things, but in seeking an answer to this most profound and important question it is, by itself, insufficient. With this ‘in mind,’ it is only sensible to direct my thinking towards accomplishments of other important but of necessity less abstract goals.
Trepidation comes from fear of what might be expected of us.
If there is a way to Enlightenment – and I know there is because many people have become enlightened- then if I want this, I must go about it in the right way.
One fundamental question must be honestly answered: Do I want this?
It’s taken me a long time to eventually formulate this question. God give me the courage to answer it truthfully.
My thoughts? I hope you enjoyed this little essay,Uncertainty in Life.
