There is a reality, with events we do not control, but our emotions and our experience are only loosely connected to factuality. The reality we face is uncertain and constantly changing; and there is no intrinsic characteristic found in what's uncertain, in what's impermanent; thus, our experience cannot possibly have any tie to any 'firm' characteristic.
Our interpretation, conditioned ( #karma ) to be fearful or fearless, is what selects the world we live in.
