The Intelligence of Fear


Recommended Posts

I was trying to workout at a calisthenics gym in a park. 


Wasps were buzzing over my head, I quietly picked up my belongings and ran full speed to my car. 


I saw the intelligence of physical fear, how perfectly it operates, and that fear isn't a problem to be solved. 


Physical fear is perfectly fine, I see this now. I see more and more now that the "enlightened being" really is just a normal person.


If I saw Eckhart tolle running from wasps a long time ago, I wouldve thought he wasn't enlightened, now I see that's the most intelligent thing you could do when wasps are buzzing around you.

"Mediocrity is gone. Mind is clear of limitation. I seek no state of enlightenment. Neither do I remain where no enlightenment exists. Since I linger in neither condition, eyes cannot see me. If hundreds of birds strew my path with flowers, such praise would be meaningless."
