Wouldn’t it be nice to do away with uncertainty? Isn’t it the dream to create a life that is certain, comfortable, defined, and safe? We work hard to have a secure existence. Certainty is the name of the game. Or is it?
We are creator beings. We create every single moment. We can’t stop creating. We create our families, our friends, our jobs, our environments, our lives. To be sure, we are co-creators, but we create never the less. Think about how you would not create. You are creating that scenario, right? OK, so that means we can create a life of certainty, that is safe and comfortable. Why not? We can create anything else, so let’s create a safe and certain existence. It might be boring, but we can create it. Or can we?
By definition, uncertainty means change. If something is uncertain, then it can change. It follows then that only things that are certain cannot change, those things are absolutes. So, as creator beings, what is it that we cannot change, that we cannot create differently from how it currently exist?
I know of only 3 absolute truths:
- We are all, everyone of us, children of the Creator/God/Source/One. God is within each of us and we are within God. We are all part of the One.
- We are all without sin from the persceptive of the One. I realize this is a hard one to understand, but it is an absolute truth. We are not able to judge any action as ultimately good or bad from our limited perspective because we don’t see how that action may fit within the whole of the One. All experiences add to our depth of being and contribute to the fabric of who we are.
- God, herself, is not complete without each and every one of us. To be any less would mean that the One is less than all that is, which it cannot be.
In summary, the only thing that is certain, that is without uncertainty and cannot be changed is the One. I know, this is mind bending stuff and it may take some time to work through all the different variables and questions. I have spent years doing just that and this is where I ending up, at the beginning. I invite you to do the same.
So what does this all mean today as we go to and from the mat?
It means that life, the experience of living and creating is by definition uncertain. Everything is subject to change. The only thing we can count on without fail is change. Yes, the only certainty within our lives is uncertainty.
Embrace the uncertainty. Take great comfort in knowing that you have the power to change anything and everything in your life that does not work for you. It is that uncertainty that gives you great freedom. Uncertainty itself gives you the wings to control your life!
Celebrate the uncertainty of life; the adventure, the freedom and the power that defines you. You can only fear uncertainty when you have given your power of change to someone else. Never give that power away, cherish your power to create and co-create your life as only you can.
