First of all, anything this author writes is breathtaking. He is quite clean and deeply honest in his thinking and he doesn't believe that people are spiritually ranked above one another so much as walking paths about the world together.
So when he talks about fear, he's like a grandpa, trying and trying to explain the way he sees it. This is a good book to boil away verbiage and fantasy and get to the core of why fear can control us.
It is, in the end, a question of the level of consciousness and presence we choose to cultivate. And then again, it's not, because those are just words ... and feeling a thing is not enough, either.
This is about totally being.
