One thought on “There’s no shame in fear. But understand this – the coward is ruled by fear, while the hero rides it like a wild stallion.

  1. I keep coming back to this one. It’s proving to be a useful image. The Tibetans talk of the windhorse, and say that the mind rides on the ‘lung’ (inner air) through the channels of the body, like a rider on a horse. So this reminds me in a fresh way, don’t be overpowered by your fear/lung, and don’t waste time being ashamed of it, get on and learn to ride it. A lifelong quest, it seems!
