Living With Uncertainty
This show is a little more on the psychology side of things and has to do with what I have been seeing and feeling over the past few months. It started before Covid flared up but became even more true and insightful for me after Covid started.
We are all experiencing a lot of anxiety and stress (as I’ve been talking about quite a lot in my podcasts) and I’ve covered some of the physical manifestations of that in today’s show. But I also get into the basic issues causing our stress which has to do with our fear around all of the uncertainty because we always thought before now that there was a lot of certainty. Well, there wasn’t any more certainty before Covid than we have now — we just bought into the “illusion of certainty” that we were brought up with.
I have found that that seeing through that illusion is the best way to live with it. Because I know that I’m okay and I can handle anything that comes along because I know that as a human being I’m built for that uncertainty – that’s how human beings have made it to now.
This is a psychology that was first seen and communicated by Sydney Banks and there are a lot of people who are sharing it throughout the world now. It’s known as Inside-Out Thinking and/or the 3P / 3 Principles. I find it to be similar in many ways with Buddhism and other Eastern Philosophies as it is centered on your innate wisdom or buddhanature.
I mention and quote from Victor Frankl’s book “Man’s Search for Meaning” in the podcast which is a well known and well respected book on how he survived being in Auschwitz Concentration Camp during World War II.
