A fearful mind is in great danger, as it is liable to believe itself. There is less danger when one is aware that fear is being experienced. It’s a little like being offered something you “know” is too good to be true. Will “awareness” be the guide or the pleasure of seduction? Will “fear” be the guide, or awareness that something seems “frightening?”
Thus, knowing that “I am frightened,” is the beginning of wisdom, for only then is the door to liberation also present.
