If we could only learn to go consciously quiet in the face of some unwanted or otherwise fearful moments, then we would realize a kind of Real miracle: for in that same intentional silence (of ours) we would hear this adversary before us begin to tell us all we need to know about the meaning of its fearful appearance, as well as what actions to take -- if any at all -- to put us upon the best path to a peaceful solution.
We cannot protect ourselves from what we fear in life and be free of fear. The only way anyone ever gets "around" a fearful moment is by a route that brings him back to it!
