I was once asked whether uncertainty in life is a boon or a curse.
This is how I replied.
It depends on how you take it. For me, uncertainty is a boon.
When there is uncertainty, we gear up our entire personality, our resources, all our faculties and intelligence and get ready to face it. Only when we are uncertain we become active, dynamic and adventurous.
On the other hand, if we are certain and secure about our future, complacency can creep in. Then the spirit of adventure dies. Some healthy competition helps the spirit but too much of it is not good.
So, uncertainty helps us to be alert, dynamic, ready to venture and adventure.
Only when there is uncertainty, we tend to turn to Spirituality and God.
Uncertainty definitely helps. Contemplate on this when you are alone.
