Being Comfortable with Uncertainty | Discover What is Emerging
“There is a hidden order in the universe. As we are willing to dance with chaos in our life … we open the door to the possibility of personal and global transformation unfolding in ways we could never predict. The key is to be open and mindful of the hidden rhythms in our life. All things are possible when we learn to dance with the … energy.”
