The only safety anyone can ever have is in the independence of their own mind - if this is taken, then we cease to exist from that moment on - check your own mind now, and ensure it is entirely your own - and that you are not simply waiting to be given your next opinion or thought by someone more experienced, or authoritative - or by the television, or newspaper.
Life is a collection of moments - make them all as important as you can, and you have no reason to fear death - nor pain - nor fear itself.
If life is a journey - then don't take the bus or train, or you might find yourself waking up right before the last station wondering what the hell happened along the way.
Don't ride - walk - and chose your own paths - never along the road, because everything there has been done and seen before. Strike out across the country - across the fields, or forests or jungles - climb any mountains you can see. Though the way might be hard - the view will be worth it.
Never fear any hardship, sorrow, pain or loss - and never turn away from them - because they will enrich our souls and make us appreciate more the times of safety, joy, peace and love.
