Uncertainty in the Present Moment
The present moment has been a paper refuge from the future for me in that at the present moment I am OK, and the future doesn’t exist so don’t worry. But I always knew deep down that there is a connection between now and then, and that made the meditation feel inauthentic. This meditation showed me that while in the present, I can know that there is a next moment which will be different, that the fear now is not a failure of my meditating, but not knowing how to deal with uncertainty. I was able to embrace the uncertainty in the moment and not fear the future. This was powerful for me.
