  • for the most part in life, it’s uncertainty
  • trivial matters OR life-changing decisions

Life’s biggest illusion

  • you can’t control your own future
  • everything happened to you is destined
  • you can’t do much about life

Everything Happens for a Reason

  • the value would be unveiled to you at the end
  • things happen for you, not to you

Osho teachings

Don’t call it uncertainty, call it wonder. Don’t call it insecurity, call it freedom.

The Simulation Game Metaphor

  • There is a set blueprint for each role player
  • But there are also options for you to choose and decisions to be made by you

  • Take action
  • Our freewill makes all the difference

From Steven Pressfield:

It’s like the universe’s way of testing you. “Do you really want this? Well, I am going to put some failures in you. And let’s see how bad you really want this
