    Unless, of course, you do it in your imagination…

    Yup. It takes a LOT of hard work and paddling; but the feeling of accomplishment when one reaches the other side must feel tremendous! 🙂

    This morning I received a small paragraph that I think is quite relevant here: “There’s a tremendous amount of fear in people’s lives. You’re always protecting yourself. So the journey is that one has to be fearless. One has to be brave. One must break out of the world which is comfort-oriented.” ~Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

      Interesting comment. I’ve been thinking about courage a lot, as it happens, and have collected a mass of quotes about it. Think I’ll start posting some —-
      Absolutely right about the great quantity of fear in most of our lives.

    Speaking of fear – my daughter gave me a fridge magnet that says (and I’m quoting Eleanor Roosevelt here), “Do one thing every day that scares you.”

    I try… and taken in small increments like that, one finds oneself building courage.

    Great quote. Simple, direct. No excess verbiage. Tagore rules! D
