Fear has a practical purpose. What if we were never feeling ‘insecure’ with no fears, and even be indestructible? Sounds nice, but life needs both the positive, negative, and every other perception that may or may not be real. Each of us is here in these incredible, fascinating, and fast changing times as a gift. We’ve been given this gift, and it’s our choice to treasure and tune into life’s many vicissitudes, or in the worse case live as if life is a dark jungle. Giving back to this insecure life given is godly, which can in itself create an aura of well being and greater godlike security.
Life is a balance between the polarities of reasons to be insecure and reasons to be secure. To be aware in the mind and heart is to foster security, but life works best if we are able to see reasons why to be mindful. paying attention, or understanding why there is a feeling of insecurity. Fear in its many forms is a necessity in life to avoid calamity or of even losing life. There is no animal in the kingdom of moving life that isn’t automatically programmed with a sense of having to watch out for its life. An ‘insecurity gene’.
Love life as if you may lose it. Be aware of everything and why, knowing that you should honor some sense of insecurity. Walking into the unknown where the nature of the environment may not be as friendly as you would like it requires alertness. I recall when I worked on Wall St. that all potential prospective clients were a mystery as to their receptivity from initially meeting to receiving an ‘order’. My philosophy was to expect nothing, and do what was best for the possibility of something happening.
Life has moments of possible ‘rejection’ where it’s best to be secure in your insecurity, or in other words, at the peak of your ‘awareness and accepting mind’ of what ever happens is meant to be for the moment. Being in the frame of a secure ‘wondering’, anticipating heart and mind may feel ‘insecure’ but can be a positive ‘insecurity’. Make all your feelings of insecurity, blessings and opportunities to experience and learn how best to handle in the moment as well as for future memory. Life is am endless series of ‘tender’ moments that await your choice of expressions to deal with it.
Intelligence will accept that insecurity is the very fabric of life. Not knowing is the counterpart of the miraculous and mysterious existence. We all know nothing but the superficial, all that we think we know ‘goes on changing’. The best security is deep, deep love within, and life still has the mystical aura of insecurity.
