Guruji's Knowledge Sheet: Uncertainty

Click on the button Bookmark and Share to share Sri Sri's divine knowledge topics.

Sri Sri: You can be at ease with the uncertainty of the world when you realise
the certainty of the consciousness. Often people do just the opposite. They are
certain about the things in the world and uncertain about God. They rely on
something that is not reliable and get upset. Uncertainty causes craving for
stability and the most stable thing in the universe is our Self.

The world is of change, the Self is of non-change. You have to rely on the
non-change and accept the change. If you are certain that everything is
uncertain, then you are liberated. When you are uncertain in ignorance then you
become worried and tense. Uncertainty with awareness brings higher states of
consciousness and a smile.

Bharat says: A certain smile!!!

Often people think that certainty is freedom. If you feel that freedom when you
are not certain then that is 'real' freedom. Often your certainty or uncertainty
is based on the relative world. To be certain about the uncertainty of the
relative, makes you certain about the existence of the absolute and brings a
'certain' faith in the absolute. Nitin says: Yes, to understand this you
certainly need to have awareness!!!

Question : Can we still be enthusiastic when we are uncertain?

Sri Sri : Yes, in knowledge you can be enthusiastic in uncertainty. Often people
who are uncertain dont act, they simply sit and wait. Acting in uncertainty
makes life a game, a challenge. Being in uncertainty is letting go. Certainty
about the relative world creates dullness. Uncertainty about the Self creates
fear. Uncertainty about matter brings certainty about consciousness.
