You might encounter pain, will you shy away?
When daring to venture into the complexities of life, putting ourselves out there. There is a likelyhood of being met with disappointment, regret, humiliation, despair, loss and grief. We never know the outcome of being bold and headstrong, but still, sometimes we have to plummet head first into the matrix of endless outcomes and scenarios.
If fear is holding us back, fear of the negative feelings that may show up, fear of negative consequences, fear of rejection, it is easy to become stifled. But not all that is positive is good, and not all that is considered negative is bad.
If we are prepared to face the potential of great exaltation, or eventually degration, and still choose to place ourself in the confusing mess, we might reach the apex of experience. Or, end up at rock bottom, we can always pick ourself up. The philosophy of the brave aries archetype.
