How fear can serve you

Shadow photoOn the path of spirituality and enlightened living, since we strive to get into the mode of trusting, having faith, and being fearless, we try to distance ourselves from fear. And when we feel fear, we often see this as a sign of spiritual weakness.

A million words can be said about love. And yet the true experience of love lies way beyond anything we can say about it. Love is ultimately beyond words and always escapes the grasp of the mind.
