Are you insecure?
It takes a very secure person to answer that question honestly.
We all have our insecurities. No one is 100% secure in his position 100% of the time. Indeed, some might argue that one of the greatest signs of security is being confident enough to be unsure.
The word “secure” is defined as “feeling safe, stable, and free from fear or anxiety, as in, everyone needs to have a home and to feel secure and wanted. The word is rooted in the Latin cura, “care”, and the prefix se-, meaning “without.” Securus then meaning “carefree,” “without care,” feeling no apprehension.
The more secure something — or someone — is the more natural it —or he or she — is.
But where does our sense of security come from? Or, more aptly, where does feeling insecure come from?
Did you know that classic, traditional Matzo is called Shmura Matzo, which literally means “secure Matzo”?
The secret to security lies in an expedition to a Shmura Matzo wheat field in Upstate New York by one of the world’s premier chefs, Dan Barber.
As he shared in a NY Times op-ed, true security — and flavor — is rooted in tradition, faith, consciousness, and mindfulness.
