THE BEER OF FEARLESSNESS
Learning how to handle fear, both how to utilize one's own fear and that of
others, is what allows us to brew the beer of fearlessness. You can put all
of those situations of fear and doubt into a gigantic vat and ferment them.
The path of fearlessness is connected with what we do right now, today,
rather than with anything theoretical or waiting for a cue from somewhere
else. The basic vision of warriorship is that there is goodness in
everyone. We are all good in ourselves. So we have our own warrior society
within our own body. We have everything we need to make the journey already.
