26. Don't you get scared or discouraged?

Of course I do.  But scared and discouraged are states that pass, and the sooner I realize that, the sooner they pass.  When I feel scared or discouraged, I go aside and sit with it, witness that feeling, and watch it pass.  Then getting scared or even discouraged actually becomes part of the fun challenge of this whole lifestyle!  I also begin to remember that I am way, way, way less scared or discouraged than I ever was when I was living in Babylon.
