Bravery is not the absence of fear but the intimacy with fear

befriending life by befriending ourselves in the deepest sense.

Fear is a universal experience. Even the smallest insect feels it, watch the ants take evasive action to 
to your foot,Image result for ants taking slaves

Yet for us humans Suffering begins to dissolve when we can question the belief or the hope that there’s anywhere to hide.

 Fear (is that why we have Art?) is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth.

In dealing with the daily vicissitudes of life  we are not trying to solve a problem. We are not striving to make pain go away or to become a better person. In fact, we are giving up control altogether and letting concepts and ideals fall apart. This starts with realizing that whatever occurs is neither the beginning nor the end. It is just the same kind of normal human experience that’s been happening to everyday people from the beginning of time. Thoughts, emotions, moods, and memories come and they go, and basic nowness(although that is not scientifically exact) is always here.

The  Tibetan expression ye tang che = giving up hope
