The Wisdom of Insecurity

I have always been fascinated by the law of reversed effort. Sometimes I call this phenomenon ‘the law of opposites’. When trying to stay above water, you immerse yourself; instead, if you try to dive, you float. Insecurity is the result of trying to find safety.

-Alan Watts, ‘The Wisdom of Insecurity’.
