MORE IDEAS FROM Staying at the Edge of Uncertainty - zen habits zen habits
We need to come towards the edge of uncertainty, the place we don’t like much, but which is full of growth, learning, creating and inventing. It is here when we toil that we find meaning, intimacy, beauty, love and vulnerability.
Complete uncertainty, when our lives seem in total chaos is not a desirable state to be in, and we rightly should avoid that. The edge of uncertainty is a stateless problematic than an untethered life.
If we can find a little stability, we should move towards the edge of uncertainty, developing a growth mindset.
Most of us live to minimize uncertainty, as it seems like a cause of a host of problems like anxiety, frustration, health issues, financial problems and relationship issues.
But uncertainty is not the terrible thing we make it to be, and it is possible to find joy and delight in the feeling of uncertainty.
Simplifying life isn’t about following certain steps but is in the entire mindset of the person. Our mental habits are what creates the initial complexity, which needs to be eventually simplified.
We need to look at the root cause, and it is desire. The tendency of the mind to want more and more (to be happy), and yet want less at the same time (to be at peace). The resulting conflict and polarity are what creates the problem.
