Courage, determination, and a near pathological inability to permit fear to do anything else other than alert you to the need to dodge.
I sleep, when the weather permits, perfectly well. The only things that keep me up at night are high humidity, and high temperatures. That is all.
Despite being aware of the nature of the world we are living in and the motives of those running it, I elected many years ago, to live my damned
life, regardless of what people put in my way to prevent my progress. Whether those things are personal and local, or impersonal and national or
global, I WILL progress, I WILL continue, I will NOT be stopped, no matter what efforts are made to counter my forward motion.
Control by fear is the name of the game at the highest echelons of governance. In order to be capable of living free in a captive society, it is
necessary to be above fear, to master yourself. Be disciplined. Where you were fearful of crossing the street, because you have heard how many drunk
drivers there are in your country, cross the thing anyway, and be focused on getting to the other side in perfect health. Live inside each moment, not
in the one which came before, or the ones which are to come after, but be present and aware of the moment you are in.
Concentrate on taking the small steps, ignore the wider edifice while you are working at its deconstruction, concentrate on the patch you can
Keep your awareness broad, and your focus narrow, and remember above all things, that it is better to die free, than live in chains, whether they are
physical, or wrapped around your mind.
