The wisdom of never being secure

One of the foundations of wisdom is to see that things are always changing, and changing in ways that we do not expect. The weather we are having these “Summer” days helps – showers, followed by sun, followed today by longer spells of rain:

It must be obvious..

that there is a contradiction in wanting to be perfectly secure in a universe

whose very nature is momentariness and fluidity.

Alan Watts, The Wisdom of Insecurity
