The lesson

The past creates, nurtures, and sustains fear. There is no fear that is not founded in the past. There can be no fear without submission to the past. There will be no fear once free of the past.

Disembroil yourselves from the ravelled, choking maze of caution. Your fearless surrender to whatever befalls you, to whatever calls you, is your only guarantee of the fullness of the present.

If it helps at all, it is all much less traumatic than you imagine. Remember, fear is an emotion, a contrivance of the mind. It is not a real response to a genuine stimulus. Instead of submitting to an illusory, hypothetical condition, feel all that is authentic around you, including the courage and the strength I am sending you now.
