When you were born, you were kicked off a precipice. And there’s nothing that can stop you falling. And there are a lot of rocks falling down with you, with trees growing up on them, and all sorts of things like that. You can cling to one of those rocks if you like, as it goes down with you, for safety. But it is not safe. Nothing is safe. Everything is falling apart. Everything is in a state of change. And there’s no way of stopping it. And when you’re really resigned to that, when you really accept that, then there is nothing left to be afraid of.
