Fearlessness

I took a brief hiatus there because I had to see a man about a horse, but I'm back.  My brain has of course been percolating, and I will allow it fuller expression tomorrow, but for now I wanted to submit that my emerging conviction is that fearlessness and spirituality are more or  less synonymous--at least the proper beginning of spirituality, which is a word I have used only rarely as abused, misused, and largely denuded of the capacity for conveying any important truths.

Constant vigilance is not fearlessness.  Constant preparedness is not fearlessness.  What is needed is to step into the ether, and stay there as well as you can, floating on whatever emerges to meet you.  This is the path forward.
