Living in Uncertainty, Living with Spirit

Overview

Our ancestors lived in a world saturated with spiritual significance. Unusual events occurring within the contingencies of life were easily comprehended in terms of spiritual reality (the work of the gods for example) and the future was generally pictured in terms of the "after-life". People could thus feel a measure of security in their present circumstances and some certainty about their future.

Overview

Our ancestors lived in a world saturated with spiritual significance. Unusual events occurring within the contingencies of life were easily comprehended in terms of spiritual reality (the work of the gods for example) and the future was generally pictured in terms of the "after-life". People could thus feel a measure of security in their present circumstances and some certainty about their future.

In contrast, our ordinary existence today seems bereft of any spiritual significance, generating insecurity in our lives and uncertainty in the face of what has now become an unknown future.

In this series of essays, the author describes unusual events in his own life that he chose to follow, or act upon. In so doing, he slowly discovered that a certain kind of non-random event can be a hint of unknown futures seeking to unfold into existence. These essays together form the outline of an art form, or method for proceeding from personal insecurity and uncertainty towards comprehension of the spiritual significance lying within ordinary life.
