Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway. (John Wayne)
Have you ever stared at a monster from close range? There is something amazing about this scary experience; our well-established world breaks down at that moment. Our own thinking goes all over the place and we have nothing to hold onto whatsoever. Whether we like it or not, we have to put ourselves into the hands of fate as we approach the monster. We have to cope with life as it presents itself, not as we picture it to be. It is as if the monster removes our imaginary blinders. It is only then when we realize that the scary monster isn't as real as we made it out to be either.
Let's saddle up friends. Our spiritual path is waiting for us. Never mind the fear - magic happens along the WAY.
