I must not fear.Bene Gesserit – Litany Against Fear (Frank Herbert’s – Dune 1965)
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.
I have found the litany used by Paul Atreides is pretty useful to recite on my worst days. It’s brilliant in its simplicity and doesn’t rely on some outside fantasy to “give you strength”. The strength is already within… this makes you more mindful of that fact.
