“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.” – Nelson Mandela

A good reminder Tut’s from the Universe

Sometimes, understanding their fears, Natalie, helps you to understand their actions and their pain.
Plus, understanding their fears sometimes helps you to understand your own.

“Community is created by understanding the blocks that we put in the way of community, by understanding the conflicts that arise from our fears and our desires.”

On the land of love, “You refuse to need any particular person or to be special to anyone or to call anyone your own. – To see at last with a vision that is clear and unclouded by fear or desire.”

“There’s only one evil in the world, fear. There’s only one good in the world, love. – Think of the last time you were angry and search for the fear behind it.”

“Get rid of your fear of failure, your tensions about succeeding, you will be yourself. Relaxed. You wouldn’t be driving with your brakes on. That’s what would happen.”

More in a fable on P.58 “There’s a lovely saying of Tranxu, a great Chinese sage, that I took the trouble to learn by heart. It goes: ‘When the archer shoots for no particular prize, he has all his skills; when he shoots to win a brass buckle, he is already nervous; when he shoots for a gold prize, he goes blind, sees two targets and is out of his mind. His skill has not changed, but the prize divides him. He cares! He things more of winning than of shooting, and the need to win drains him of power.”

On understanding who “I” is: “You’ll never be the same again, never. Nothing will ever be able to touch you and no one will ever be able to hurt you again. You will fear no one and you will fear nothing. – You fear no one because you’re perfectly content to be nobody.”
