Jack Kerouac – Fear of Knowing

http://www.jackkerouac.com/

‘Even fear crossed his brain, imaginary fevers that something was going on behind his back, before his closed eyes: unmoved, he let these doubts and disturbances, like bubbles, vanish back to their origin in the emptiness of the mental sea.’

Jack Kerouac – Wake Up! A Life of the Buddha


 

Fear of Knowing

 

eyes closed
allowing fear
to displace calm

absorbing
the sensation
of fright:

uneasiness
apprehension
uncertainty

vanish

 


The swallowing sense of fear one sometimes gets navigating the ‘mental sea‘ dissipates.
