'Because I had learnt, more deeply than ever before, that life is lived not through fantasies of control, but by giving in to it and trusting to the future. Why? Who knows? What happens now? Again, who knows? And isn't that the wonderful perfect, remarkable thing about being alive? The uncertainty. You must love the uncertainty. Because only when you have begun to accept that life is as insubstantial as a wisp of smoke and that you are helpless, that it will end in death and oblivion, can you discover the true joy of simply breathing, and looking, and being, just being, right here, now.' -Tim Lott-
Uncertainty according to the Chambers Concise dictionary means not sure or certain, not definitely known or decided, not to be depended upon, likely to change, though it can also mean lacking confidence or hesitant. So the fact that I'm uncertain dealing with uncertainty poses a difficulty....certainly.
Mind you, if I'm uncertain then even that difficulty itself becomes uncertain surely? Which is what Mr Lott was saying I think, although I don't like to think that there is only oblivion after death, that's not a certainty and therefore he can't then be certain of that outcome of course. ;)))
However....'The moment when you first wake up in the morning is that most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there!' -Monica Baldwin-
