2.) You Practice the Zen of Fearlessness
“You understand that in order to be a force to be reckoned with in this world, you cannot come from a place of fear, but from a place of fearlessness. You live a courage-based lifestyle, having left the typical fear-based lifestyle of modern day cultures behind. You don’t seek invulnerability like a coward in a tank afraid of the world. You have become absolutely vulnerable like a ninja in the light, fearless of the world. Your courage is your intimacy with fear, your embracing of risk… Nothing is safe from your questioning heart which you use like a double edged sword to cut through the outdated way of things.
Attitude is everything, and your attitude is, “nothing can stop me, but me.” Your fearlessness is not founded upon lack of fear, but on transforming fear itself. Fearlessness is not the absence of fear; it is being absolutely terrified, but doing it anyway. You have simply decided to use fear as a steppingstone toward something greater, rather than as an emotion that cripples you into a state of cowardice… Like the Zen proverb says, “The obstacle is the path.”’
