“The intellect is governed by the ego, and the ego is bound by fear. We don’t usually uncover a truth about ourselves in the absence of fear or insecurity. In fact, many times when you encounter an individual who has experienced a true transformation of self or a true healing, they usually have stories of overcoming fear. They often talk about the ridicule they endured and the loneliness they felt as they pursued a certain course of action. But always inside they were propelled forward, against all resistance. Ever ignoring their own trepidation, they continued forward. I once asked a friend, who seemed so confident and daring to me, how she was able to go through life with no fear. She told me she had a lot of fear, but she always chose to ignore it. “Otherwise,” she said, “I would never do anything with my life.”
