Fear and the Divine
"The source of your strength, your Spirit or Divine Self, is larger than any fear. If you don't have that experience with yourself, it's an opportunity to delve deeper within to find the strength to overcome whatever the fear would be. It's not that you will never experience fear again. You may still be aware of the fear. But by tuning into your divine nature, your relationship with fear will change so you are one who functions in the strength and courage that is of the Spirit." -John-Roger
"The fearlessness of the great spiritual teachers like Moses, Jesus, Saint Theresa, Buddha, and Bodhidharma was the fearlessness of the spiritual warrior. Different from stoicism, naïveté, or arrogance, this fearlessness is selfless, generous, and compassionate. Fearlessness is not a matter of ignoring fear, but of really acknowledging it and being empowered by it."
- John Daido Loori Roshi, "Between Two Mountains"
