“As human beings we share a tendency to scramble for certainty whenever we realize that everything around us is in flux. In difficult times the stress of trying to find solid ground-something predictable and safe to stand on-seems to intensify.

BUT IN TRUTH, THE VERY NATURE OF OUR EXISTENCE IS FOREVER IN FLUX. EVERYTHING KEEPS CHANGING, WHETHER WE’RE AWARE OF IT OR NOT…

 

What a predicament! We seem doomed to suffer simply because we have a deep-seated fear of how things really are. Our attempts to find lasting pleasure, lasting security, are at odds with the fact that we’re part of a dynamic system in which everything and everyone is in process.” (Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change)
