At the other end is the more personal response to the people in one's life and the uncertainty enmeshed in how they may or may not respond in certain situations.
On the one hand, we can respond to the uncertainty of other people's responses with fear and anxiety. On the other, we can embrace the uncertainty with the state of 'not knowing'.
External or internal?
My experience is that my felt response to the external 'not knowing', with the example of Gihan's input, is 'curiosity and ignorance'. This leads on to a willingness to enquire, be receptive and experiment.
My felt response to the internal 'not knowing' is not so easy. But when I embrace it, it is a state of being at peace with whatever is. This leads on to the challenge of prolonging this state in numerous diverse circumstances.
