Lotus Anwen Sagebrush
Free from Fear and Doubt
"Self-deception often arises because you are afraid of your own intelligence and afraid that you won't be able to deal properly with your life. You are unable to acknowledge your own innate wisdom. Instead, you see wisdom as some monumental thing outside yourself. That attitude has to be overcome. In order to be without deception, the only reference point you can rely on is the knowledge that basic goodness exists in you already. The certainty of that knowledge can be experienced in the practice of meditation. In meditation, you can experience a state of mind that is without second thoughts, free from fear and doubt."
- Shambhala, The Sacred Path of the Warrior, Chogyam Trungpa, p54
