Uncertain Uncertainty – The Winged Keys Analogy


In the book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone there is this scene as below:

“They’re not birds! They’re keys! Winged keys — look carefully. So that must mean … yes — look! Broomsticks! We’ve got to catch the key to the door!” – Harry

A flock of winged keys were one of the protections for the Philosopher’s Stone, put in place by Filius Flitwick. The swarm of winged keys filled a well-lit chamber blocking the way to the hiding place of the Mirror of Erised and the Philosopher’s Stone within. The keys had shiny, brightly colored wings which glittered like jewels. One particular key, an old-fashioned silver key with bright blue wings, was needed to open the heavy wooden door leading into the next chamber. In order to pass through, a person had to mount a broomstick and fly to catch the proper key.

Coming back to real life, I feel as standing in front of a locked door, which is protecting something very precious I am in search of, waiting to be unlocked. There are numerous colorful keys… I got to find my ‘One particular key, an old-fashioned silver key with bright blue wings’.

There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the one key, I am looking for to open the magical door:

Will I be able to find it on time? Will I be able to find it at all? Does this magical key ‘THE KEY’ really exists? What if I waste my time, trying the other fancy ones? What if the time slips by until the time I figure out which is MY KEY? There are so many ‘what if’s‘…..

There is stress and there is tons of uncertainty involved. I am standing outside the chamber with my magical broom, filtering out the colorful keys to shortlist the ones I ought to chase on my broom to try opening the door. My mind can do all the filtering, but only my heart can do the selection to find ‘The Key‘.

I was trying out some blue keys, and my best friend, Ronald Weasley asks me excitedly: “Time well spent?”. I flash my wand, and make this message appear in the air for Ron:

Uncertainty helps us to live in the NOW, appreciate the present and trust the process. Our job is just to be clear on the WHAT and the WHY and trust the universe for the HOW.

“There is a beautiful gift, in uncertainty. Uncertainty teaches us on how to accept LIFE – AS IT IS. To embrace what we have today, and to be grateful for the experiences that we have. When you face obstacles and don’t know if you’re gonna make it through, that’s what gives you that drive, that courage, that motivation, that’s what builds your character. 

Uncertainty is an oppotunity to grow, to challenge oneself. This is a gift, specifically for you. You were chosen for this experience. Because YOU and only YOU, can handle it.”

  1. “The Elixir of Life is a potion produced by using
    the Philosopher’s Stone that extends the life of the drinker.”

    “The Stone was not such a wonderful thing. As much money
    and life as you wanted, the two things most human beings would
    choose above all. The trouble is, humans do have a knack of
    choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.”

    • You’re such an angel, Fred. Yep very right about the philosopher’s stone. It resurrects the dead and that’s why Lord Voldemort led Harry to it.

      In my case, it holds an elixir to life, joy and adventure to come.. Life is beautiful right now, just looking for someone to share the beauty with ☺️☺️
