Fear: A Necessary Emotion…

“Bran thought about it. ‘Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?’
‘That is the only time a man can be brave,’ his father told him.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

The new age tells me I should have no fear. Anyone who tells me I should have no fear does not know the nature of the work of the shaman. There is fear every time I journey, every time I work in trance. There has to be some level of fear to respect the power of this work as I may not come back.

“Fear doesn’t shut you down; it wakes you up”
― Veronica Roth, Divergent
