THE BEER OF FEARLESSNESS

A warrior should be capable of artfully
conducting his or her life in every action, from
drinking tea to running a country. 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.

Bravery. From Dharma Ocean Digest. Thanks.
