The Litany Against Fear

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

F.H., Dune


I had an interesting realization today.  It’s not the first time I had this realization, and I hope that one day it will finally stick with me.  I realize just how much fear fucks with us.  I don’t like it.  P suggests meditation.  Sometimes it irks me because he’s just so zen about it all.  BUT, he does have a point.  Perhaps I’ll give it a go.  What could it hurt?
