"I can tell you that it’s fear that has determined my life: what I called audacity was really panic. Fear that things might not be the way I had decided they would, fear to cross a boundary that was not in the mind, but the heart; fear of loving and not being loved in return. In the end, this is really man’s only terror, and it is the reason we fall into mediocrity. Love is like a bridge suspended over the void… out of fear, we complicate simple things, so as to follow the ghosts of our mind; we turn a straight road into a labyrinth we don’t know how to escape. It’s so hard to accept the rigor of simplicity, the humility of surrender." Susanna Tamaro

Close your eyes and let the mind expand. Let no fear of death or darkness arrest its course. Allow the mind to merge with Mind. Let it flow out upon the great curve of consciousness. Let it soar on the wings of the great bird of duration, up to the very Circle of Eternity.
