10/6/2013 – Uncertainty

Joey guided us today, with questions posed in advance and a recorded dharma talk by Norman Fischer, as we explored the way that Not Knowing functions in our experience.

the questions to contemplate are

   Much of our fear arises from uncertainty, having to tolerate the mysterious unpredictability and surprise of life’s turns.  Often I and others try to assert our control through knowing.
   I will be sharing a talk by Zen priest, Norman Fischer, on not knowing.
   In these next few days, you might see what emerges for you as you muse:
What’s right about knowing?
How do you hold onto your knowing?
Who would you be without your knowing?
