On Feeling Safe

It is impossible to be secure in an ever-changing universe, but our desire for security is overpowering. The paradox is that the more we look for security, the more we trap ourselves in our insecurity. If you hold your breath, you will lose it. The only experience of security we can attain is by disappearing our separateness from life. It is this sense of separateness that is the source of suffering. There is no need to work on safety. We need to connect with the entirety of experiences coming at us and develop faith in the universe. It always gives us what we need, not what we want.
