the wisdom of insecurity

You cannot understand life and its mysteries as long as you try to grasp it. 
Indeed, you cannot grasp it just as you cannot walk off with a river in a bucket.
 If you try to capture running water in a bucket, it is clear that you do not understand
 it and that you will always be disappointed, 
for in the bucket the water does not run. 
To "have" running water 
you must let go of it and let it run.

-Alan Watts
