FEAR- is the mindkiller by fangedfem FEAR- is the mindkiller by fangedfem
"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain."

(Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear - From Frank Herbert's Dune Book Series)

Lesa,

fear is not the biggest mindkiller; your biggest mindkiller is taking the risk to live, and the risk to be alive and express who you really are.

You do both. You do not know fear. And, dare I say it, you're a mindblower.

Thanks for this.

Fear is a tool, one must use it to tell them when they are falling deeper, but not always give into it, for fear can also tell you that you're just losing balance.

I like it, it's quite intruiging!
The eye looks quite fearful!

Indeed; very powerful -- very beautiful in the simplicity (not to mention, I love Frank Herbert to death). What could've been said, has been said -- but let us never forget -- 'fear is the path to the dark side...' ;)
