Frightened of our own shadow

The most amazing thing about life is the mystery, the adventure, the leap into the unknown, what’s around the next corner, the freedom of exploring, the joy of the magical tense moment of not knowing what’s next…uncertainty, imperfection and the unknown bring the most amazing parts of life, bring exhilaration and the sense of really being alive now in this real moment.

Yet we have created culture that demands no risk, no uncertainty, safety, and certainty. It keeps us trapped in our fear-filled thoughts of impending doom and risk.

Is it any wonder that we are the most depressed, addicted and medicated humans to ever walk the planet.

The never ending search for zero risk and complete certainty is thrust upon us by the psychological fear of everything and anything, even our own shadow.

Safe and certain

Creating our ‘art’, our ‘craft’ requires an act of love and an act of chance. To create our very best shot and see what unfolds means taking a leap.

It might work and it might not…we can’t see the future as it only exists in our mind.

The future is fear. So stay away from it and allow what is to unfold and our love of our art to be.

Brave it, do what we want now out of love and ride the wave that is the beautiful and uncertain moment that will keep unfolding.

Or we could just choose to do something safe and just work on certainties.
