tiny perspectives

Many people believe that eliminating the apparent causes of fear will eliminate it,

but fear, like beauty, is part of the world. The fear of fear results in the growth of terror

as well as a loss of the beauty and wonder of the world. By fearing fear,

we create the room for terror and panic to grow. People become blinded by fear, driven by anxieties,

and increasingly ruled by phobias and obsessions. When we fail to recognize how fear works in the world,

we become ruled by it. The point is not to become paralyzed with foreboding

or be caught in the panic that can grip the collective and cause people to run blindly in the wrong direction.

The point is to willingly go where most fear to go, to follow where the fear might lead

and face the ways that the world roars at us.

I found a new way to be in the world…

inquiry for today~ and you too, may you know this to be true…

this must be felt

Your task is not to seek for love,

but merely to seek and find

all the barriers within yourself

that you have built against it.
