Illusory Advice: The openness of doubt

"Doubts about a situation keep it fluid and available for examination – they leave things open. Openness—in terms of being uncertain of an outcome—is an experience of emptiness. Once you have decided definitely on one side or the other about a situation, then there is no longer openness and the possibility of working with the outcome. Once you have established a concrete view of how the situation should be, there is only the possibility of matters supporting or conflicting with that view. You will encourage and like the things that support it, and hit against the things that oppose it."
