“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke.

“Letting go of “adversive” judgement does not mean letting go of wise discrimination,” Tara Brach.

yes, think about something so beautiful that it protects us from ourselves, it takes all the blame for bad behavior, we bash it, get angry, cut at it and in time it become scared. It lurks in the dark, its hideous tortured body a mass of wounds that have been inflicted – still it protects. It was once a beautiful angel we called fear.
