What better time than All-Hallows’-Eve for halloween quotes about fear and fearlessness? What better teacher than Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche. Happy Halloween everyone! Go to the places that scare you, homies.

“When you are frightened by something, you have to relate with fear, explore why you are frightened, and develop some sense of conviction. You can actually look at fear. Then fear ceases to be the dominant situation that is going to defeat you.  Fear can be conquered. You can be free from fear if you realize that fear is not the ogre. You can step on fear, and therefore, you can attain what is known as fearlessness. But that requires that, when you see fear, you smile.”
