"The world is a narrow bridge...

...the important thing is to not be afraid."

-Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav

What a compelling image.

Although, thinking of the world as a narrow bridge (presumably over a dangerous river or deep chasm) makes it hard not to be afraid.

I totally agree. I guess I just appreciate the acknowledgment that life is so fucking hard. I assume the underlying message is that we're all on the bridge together, helping each other along the way.
