"a great dichotomy of living that rises above our ever present self-preservation instinct, relegating it to use as an emotional tool, is the cultivating of knowing we are safe without knowing specifically how.
to accept the world as dangerous but friendly is to transcend our automatic and persistent expectation of peril and experience each moment with a feeling of adventure.
learn to distrust your sense of impending doom. notice you're still here, alive and awash with blessings. embrace them one by one that you might reveal fear as an incompetent manager of your life and emotions".
