Benjamin Smythe said that “love is the result of overcoming fear. Awe is the result of overcoming love. Those who balk at this have the right to. Those who want to know what the Buddha meant by dispassionate, step beyond the balk into the ability to find horror fascinating. Enlightenment is not for the faint of heart.”
I replied that “sometimes there’s fear in love, sometimes there’s love in fear. Sometimes there’s awe in love, sometimes there’s love in awe.
Sometimes there’s enlightenment for the faint at heart, and sometimes there are the faint at heart in enlightenment. We live in a universe without clear boundaries; everything is present in everything else… if you look closely enough.”
