Today I am feeling passionate about fearlessness.
This is an Indian mudra for fearlessness. Every time I use this hand position, or mudra, I feel fearless. My hand is relaxed and open. I am ready to receive and handle whatever comes my way in an open and calm manner. I also feel protected, with my hand in front of me, so that I can go through my fears, knowing that I am safe, eventually reaching the other side of the fear having received lessons and knowledge. Try it. What do you feel?
“The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.” - Louis Boone
“A ship in port is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.” - Grace Murray Hopper
And this one I picked up from my dear friend Brian, who is one of the most fearless people I know and a real role model for me in my pursuit of fearlessness and passion. Tanti auguri, Brian Lane!:
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your rivers…meander through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets’ towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl…”
May you have a fearless and passionate Monday!
