Fear And Bravery ~ Chögyam Trungpa

The situations of fear that exist in our lives provide us with stepping stones to step over fear. On the other side of cowardice is bravery. If we step over properly, we can cross the boundary from being cowardly to being brave. We may not discover bravery right away. Instead, we may find a shaky tenderness beyond our fear. We are still quivering and shaking, but there is tenderness, rather than bewilderment.
