April 13, 2010: Seeking Security

Some days we win. Some days we lose. Some days we just can’t tell whether we are winning or losing. Those actually turn out to be the best days of all. They are certainly the most fruitful, even if they are not the most enjoyable.

Certainties of any kind afford us a false sense of security. Doubts are far more valuable. They give us an opportunity to re-evaluate, reflect and think. Personally, this past week was challenging for me on many levels. Once the noise of life faded and things became a bit quiet, I took that opportunity to walk a few miles, go inward; reflect; meditate and seek wisdom. I often find that my wisdom is my security. Wisdom relies on the single-mindedness of meditation, and meditation depends upon the self-awareness of morality.

If there is one particular thing or person that is making you unsure at this moment, this may actually be a good reality. It should force you to move in a different mental direction and develop clarity and decisiveness in some other area(s) of your life. We seek security for our homes, our jobs, our finances – and even our hearts. The only security we can really be sure of is the innate security that dwells within us; the security of knowing who we are, what we stand for, what we want and what we don’t want in life. In the realm of the heart, better a fog than a falsehood.

One of the beauties I appreciate about writing the Tuesday Morning Love commentary is that it is seldom generic. Its intent is always to share and embrace the moment – any given moment of any given day. Life is beautiful even on my worst day. I believe that I am slowly but surely learning to embrace the power of my NOW.

light for the mind, heart, and soul
