The Lucilius Parables, Volume I


May 25th, 2018

What would you do if fear didn’t exist?

What would you do if pain wasn’t a thing?




Those with chronic pain get used to it. Those with courage feel fear but simply respond to it differently.

If we can get used to pain, and we can change our reaction to fear: Might we do those things we dream of if fear did not hold us back, if pain wasn’t an issue?




It works the other way. 

Those who have it easy get used to it: and then everything becomes difficult. Those who have nothing to fear begin to fear everything.

Luxury becomes just as much a prison.



How free can we become by opening ourselves up to just a little more pain, pushing the boundary of that fear just a little further?
