fear is the mindkiller

In travelling, writing on January 12, 2010 at 10:31 pm

found this on an old post it, feels very prescient at this point, in the middle of my last few days in london, with too much to do, and too little time, packing (rather dumping the last of my things in various boxes, because I have no time to sort them) stuff up, and trying not to let the nervous knots in my stomach cause me to be paralyzed by what needs to be done.

fear is the mind killer

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.
