This is another one of those sayings that just seems to be counter intuitive. You know like when the driver’s ed teacher told you “if your car goes into an out of control skid…do not stomp on the brakes or wildly try to steer out of it, instead…do not brake and steer into the direction of the skid”. What in the world made the instructor think I could do that….it just is not a conscious decision it's instinct! I think it falls under the heading reflex survival. I always felt that fearlessness comes from instinctive self-preservation, brute strength and unflappable resolve but maybe that is not how this real fearlessness works. I have inkling deep down in my heart that it is not about self preervation….that it is more about about acceptance, love and tenderness. I know….it does not make sense…but more like what that driver’s ed teacher said.
I am just trying like crazy not to “stomp on the brakes or wildly steer out of the direction of the skid”.
