Living in this world is an art of managing the uncertainty. Uncertainty is a part and parcel of all lives. No life is free from it. To pacify the mind from the fears of uncertainty humans use the power of resources like religion and spirituality, money, scientific knowledge and methods, communication technologies, relationships, social institutions, social capital, political power etc.

What have you lost, that you are weeping.?
What have you brought, that you have lost?
What have you made, that has been destroyed?
You brought nothing!
What you have got, you got from here, what was given here.
What you took, you took from this universe.
What you gave, you gave unto this universe.

You have come empty-handed and shall go empty-handed.
What is yours today was somebody else's in the past and will be somebody else's in the future.
You think it is yours and are deeply engrossed in it.
This attachment is the cause of all your sorrows.

Change is the law of life. What you call death is life itself. In a moment you are a millionaire, in the very next you are a poor man. Mine and yours; Small-Big; Ours-Theirs; Remove this from your mind, then everything is yours and you are everybody’s.
