As you may know, I have an opinion about certainty …
1. I can be certain and wrong.
2. I can be certain and right.
BOTH FEEL EXACTLY THE SAME.
So, since I want to feel “right” and be certain because it feels empowering, why should I deny myself smugness anytime I want it? It’s JUST a feeling. And it’s one I can create any “now” I want.
I just realized (again) that I can choose a feeling of certainty as a light for life in any present moment of existence. Why “need to be right” to feel certain when I can just be smugly arrogant ALL THE NOWS?
Answer? I don’t. So, I’m not.
Certainty: Exemption from doubt. (Locke) Exemption from failure. That which is real. (Shakespeare); Regularity.
Now, if YOU like this idea, feel free to use it to make the present moment your little whipping boy – even when you are being done in!
