Fear Not

I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Fear.


Fear to imagine.
Fear to believe.


Fear to begin.

Fear to succeed.

Fear to fail.

Fear to be.

Fear.

  2. You're right, Bruce, this year's schedule is looking a bit aggressive, especially on a single speed. One ride at a time.
