Tolerating uncertainty

Life’s energy is never static. It is as shifting, fluid, changing as the weather. How we relate to this dynamic flow of energy is important. We can learn to relax with it, recognizing it as our basic ground, as a natural part of life; Or the feeling of uncertainty, of nothing to hold on to, can cause us to panic, and instantly a chain reaction begins.We panic, we get hooked, and then our habits take over and we act in a very predictable way.

  1. I love the way Pema speaks, and this teaching has helped me a lot. The more I practice relaxing with uncertainty, going beyond tolerance to acceptance, the more relaxed, effective, and fully alive I am.
