This morning I was in yoga class and there was a pose that I was finding really difficult, in fact, it hurt in one small spot on my hip, and I began to wonder what that was all about. I asked myself, “If that pain meant something, what would it be? The answer that sounded back was, “Uncertainty”.
So for the rest of the class, I contemplated how to release uncertainty in my life (and in my hip). It occurred to me that I fight uncertainty in my life….I try to have all the contingencies handled; all the angles looked at and manage all the possible outcomes. Although handling some of those things is a good, prudent idea, I also find that after all those questions are answered, I still vacillate, and attempt to take care of ALL the uncertainty. Well, that’s not possible, but then, I do nothing or very little waiting for the perfect time when it seems “safe” to act.
The insight I got during class, is that what needs to happen at that point is to embrace the uncertainty and dive in. Today, I am going to embrace the uncertainty and play “full out” knowing that some of the uncertainty brings something EVEN BETTER than I thought. I’ll live in that possibility.
