“From all that I have witnessed, successfully dealing with uncertainty requires that you keep your thoughts in the present moment as much as possible, for normally it is only when you are “time-traveling” into the future that insecurity besets you. While you cannot actually stop the fear-based future thoughts that emerge within your consciousness, you can develop the skill to witness those thoughts instead of identifying with them, and then remind yourself to return to the present moment.
You might be thinking, “Hey, that’s going to take a lot of effort,” and if that is your reaction, you are absolutely correct. It is definitely not easy to become a more conscious being, but just what is your alternative? Sure, you can always keep doing what you are doing, but if it hasn’t brought you the happiness and fulfillment that you’ve desired, then why not learn to better exercise God’s greatest gift to you besides life itself—freewill choice.
This ability to freely choose to what you give your thought and feeling energy means that you do not have to stay the same way you have always been; you can instead leave behind those aspects of your conditioning that merely serve to limit your potential to experience joy in this life.”
