<----PINK-CLOUD---->

thought for the day----> fear is never an actuality; it is either before or after the active present…..when there is fear in the active present, is it fear?….it is there and there is no escape from it, no evasion possible…..there, at that actual moment, there is total attention at the moment of danger, physical or psychological…..when there is complete attention there is no fear…..but the actual fact of inattention breeds fear; fear arises when there is an avoidance of the fact, a flight; then the very escape itself is fear…..
