a fear quote

josh reminded me of one of my all time favorite
books the other day. it's one that i should have
by my bed and read a sentence or two out of
every day......

it's 'who dies' by stephen levine.

i turned to it this morning - and got this.....

'fear has the capacity to close the mind, to
motivate us compulsively. but fear also has
the capacity to remind us that we have come
to our edge, are approaching unexplored
territory. its very tightness helps us to
realize that the appropriate response is to
let go softly, to acknowledge it, to enter
into it, to become one with it so as to go
beyond to whatever truth may present itself.'

i needed that this morning........
thought maybe someone else might too.....
