In his fascinating book, Healing From The Inside Out: Overcome Chronic Disease And Radically Change Your Life, Dr. Nauman Naeem discusses the nature of uncertainty and how we must embrace the unknown as a crucial step in our healing journey.
Why We Must Embrace The Unknown
The true nature of life is uncertainty. Although we like to believe that we know where we are headed
and what to expect in the seconds, minutes, hours, and days ahead, the truth is that the plans we make
for our lives are only meant to distract our minds from the true nature of reality.
Our minds need to be distracted from reality because reality is a concept that is too vast for the
mind to comprehend, and that becomes the source of its fear. The truth is that the mind is too limited to
wrap its understanding around the nature of existence. It’s true strength lies in its ability to navigate the
practical aspects of our daily lives in the physical plane.
In order to embrace the unknown, we need to find that place deep within ourselves that is akin to
the unknown. This is a part of ourselves that few people ever get to know and truly experience. It is the
void from which we emerged, the same void from which the universe was created, through the Big
Bang. No scientist truly understands what the Big Bang was and how it led to the creation of the
universe. However, I do not believe that our understanding of this phenomenon lies in scientific scrutiny
but lies in entering the void where all logic and rationale fall away.
This void runs as deep in our own being as the vastness of the universe, wherein lies both the
beauty and mystery of life and the nature of existence. Because the void or the unknown is the source
of all of creation, negation of this aspect of ourselves solidifies the illusion that we are our bodies, our
thoughts, and our emotions. The truth is that these are only aspects of who we are; they are not our
true nature. By believing in the illusion of their reality, we reinforce the negation of the truth of who we
truly are. The truth of who we are is indescribable and incomprehensible by the mind, which is why few
people ever experience the depths of their true nature.
If we truly understood our true nature and the vastness of our magnificence, the issues that occur
in our daily physical lives would reveal themselves to be tiny drops of water that are easily swallowed
up by the vast ocean of reality. These issues include our illnesses, which affect the illusory aspects of
ourselves, our bodies, our minds, and our feelings.
This may seem callous and insensitive to those who are reading these words, but this is only because
we have grown up believing in the falsehood of who we think we are and ignoring the depths of our true
reality. This is not our fault, as we have been raised in a world that believes in the illusion and is
ignorant of the true nature of its existence. If we can embrace the mystery of who we are, which eludes
our rational understanding, we can source our lives from this infinite realm and truly transcend our
