I am often afraid. Afraid of uncertainty of the future. When it happens, my heart suffers and it becomes restless. But I also know that I can always talk to my heart and calm it down. Or I challenge it by doing things which it is afraid of because by facing my fear I gain courage and confidence as well as freedom!
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.
~ Litany against fear (Bene Gesserit)
