The Value Of Uncertainty


I was having a conversation with a friend today about "being sure of yourself" and I remembered a great article in Shambhala Sun. Written shortly after the infamous September 11th 2001, it was by Margaret Wheatley and was about the value of uncertainty.

She starts by saying;
"In a changing world, certainty doesn't give us stability; it just creates more chaos. "Now," is the time for far less certainty and far more curiosity."

Shambhala Sun is a monthly magazine about Buddhism and meditation, I always find it's articles insightful and thought provoking:
