Then I went off to fight some battle
That I’d invented inside my head
. . . . .
I had to stop in my tracks for fear
Of walking on the mines I’d laid

. . . the courage to express genuine bravery in our everyday life must start with letting go of thoughts.
. . . by sitting still we stop dressing up our emotions as forms of entertainment
. . . such a pause requires courage – to let go of our hesitation, security and doubt and engage the unknown directly
