Joanna Macy on Uncertainty
“I know the Great Turning is happening. At the same time, I know we’re not sure how the story will end. I want so much to feel sure. I want to be able to tell people, “Don’t worry, it’s going to be okay”. And you know what, I realize it will not be doing anyone a favor. First of all, we can’t know. Secondly, if somehow, we can be given a pill to convince don’t worry, it’s going to turn out okay, will that elicit from us our greatest creativity and courage? NO…It’s that knife-edge of uncertainty where we come alive to our truest power”.
