In a constantly changing world, our demand for certainty and security causes us to try to force things to fit a pre-established mold. When we are trying to make everything fit our preconceived patterns, we find that we expend tremendous energy. We can exhaust ourselves by trying so hard to maintain the status quo in our lives. Sometimes the wisest course of action, when we feel uncertain or insecure, is to let ourselves just be insecure. The insecurity itself can provide an energy and a clarity of attention that gives us the strength and courage to go forward in our lives. Allowing ourselves to remain with our insecurity can be the means of direct seeing into the heart of life itself.
