“When Fear Falls Away”

I just finished Jan Frazier’s memoir, “When Fear Falls Away,” (Weizer Books, 2007). This is the second time I’ve read it, and I appreciated it even more this time.

Near the end, she says, “It’s all the busy work of the mind that you need to let wind down, run out of gas. Watch the stories you tell yourself. Notice the ways you define yourself in relation to other people, to events, to ideas.” (pg 188)

I don’t think of “doing practices” any more–life is a full Monte practice!–but if I did, her description would fit for me. Notice and notice and notice. Then notice some more.
