Hello Friends,

Hope you all enjoy your weekend:)

If only things were that simple. If only events could be packaged into neat containers of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ or ‘good’ and ‘evil’. Despite our proclivities towards binary and dualistic thinking, life is a whole lot messier. Many circumstances are morally ambiguous and uncertain.

Inspired by the work of Shakespeare, the esteemed English poet John Keats coined the term ‘negative capability’ to describe the embrace of the unknown. It speaks to the idea of withholding judgement, and refraining from our desire to seek immediate answers. Negative capability requires one to cultivate a degree of attentiveness towards the world. To let go of our grip, our control, and open up our arms to beauty, grace and truth.

Our rational thinking mind turns off as we connect more deeply with our intuition, the deeper experiences of our life.

As we step into the mystery, novel possibilities unfold. Creativity emerges giving birth to new ways of being. The lenses that we have previously used to interpret the world become obsolete. The chains that held us back, our fears and self-doubt, break apart.

We can begin anew.

For what is a human being but a bridge between who they are and what they can be.

A stream of potentialities.
