On Risk Taking


Risk taking is indeed a paradox. If we are everything and nothing, there cannot be any risks. While most of us understands that paradox, we are nonetheless often faced with quite an array of unwelcomed emotions during the process. In the context of experiencing the whole of life, our feelings, while uncomfortable, could be created as a welcome register to our giving it all… The opposite of risk taking is being comfortable, as in a grey ordinary routine…

Where does wisdom fit in that thought? In not identifying with the feelings while experiencing them.

‘It is necessary to go to the irreparable loss, the irreversible disaster, the long kiss of parks, the lunar miscarriage, before acceding entirely to one’s own birth.’ Vincent La Soudière
