A Quote...

Fear itself is an aversion. There might be physical sensations, emotional associations that occur...the mind starts planning about the future, how to get out of this scary situation. But here’s the thing I want to point you to, which is that when you know you’re afraid, that means that some part of you is not afraid. The part that knows you’re afraid is not afraid.
