Quotes About Life

Lean Beyond Fear - David Deida

By leaning just beyond your fear,
you challenge your limits compassionately,
without trying to escape the feeling of fear itself.
You step beyond the solid ground of security with an open heart.
You stand in the space of unknowingness, raw and awake.
Here, the gravity of deep being will attend you
to the only place where fear is obsolete:
the eternal free fall of home.
Where you always are.

Own your fear,
and lean just beyond it.
In every aspect of your life.
Starting now.
