Uncertainty and Fear

A lot of people are discovering edges right now, particularly when it comes to what feels uncertain and what feels scary.

Often, the limits aren’t where we thought. The familiar suddenly looks less certain, and therefore less safe.

But even when so much of life is lived above our uncertainty threshold, it can’t all be lived beyond our fear threshold. Otherwise, of course, we’d never walk, drive, or fly anywhere even when we could.

The opportunity is to see inherent uncertainty more clearly, to live more comfortably in that newly expanded zone of not-knowing and, gradually, to push back the limits of fear.
