Confusion and Uncertainty by Franco Santoro

If you feel confused and uncertain regarding your life purpose, this is not necessarily a problem. On the contrary it may be a sign of very good multidimensional health. Perhaps you should be more concerned when you feel absolutely clear and certain regarding who you are and what you are supposed to do in this world.

In this world there seems to be so many people who are clear regarding their identity and objectives in life. Mass media in particular play a vital role in promoting this category of individuals. The point is that this flaunted clarity and certainty is in most cases sheer fiction, mere propaganda aimed at convincing others about what their objectives in life should be.

Have you ever seen an advertising, or a politician or religious authority, expressing uncertainty, confusion and doubts regarding their products or ideas? Most unlikely! There is no market for confusion and uncertainty. This is because people have too much of it, and don’t want more. Nobody would ever sell something that everybody has, and for free.

Uncertain and confused people are the primary consumers of what provides clarity and certainty. Then once these uncertain people are convinced about the certainties they have been sold, they become the main promoters of those certainties.

If you feel confused and uncertain regarding who you are, what you are doing here and what your objectives are in life, accept your condition, do not rush to change anything. Certainty and clarity are the primary drugs of mankind, they serve the purpose of denying our capacity to question who we are, to ask ourselves what we are doing in this world, to open to the mystery of our existence.

If you feel confused and uncertain, if you have the courage to openly admit it, without pretending to be clear and certain, this is probably a sign that you are still alive, that you truly exist. Perhaps you are one of the few human beings who is still real, an endangered species, a glimpse of hope for mankind.
