I don't so much mind looking back on having lost the election, or having been denied a role in the play, or having had my novel repeatedly rejected, or having been turned down for a date, or recalling laughter at my expense when I attempted some silly challenge. ? Those things simply prove that I? lived life. ? What I do mind, however, is looking back on the lost opportunities where imagined concerns kept me from even trying, lose or win. ? I've learned that there is no regret in a brave attempt. Only in cowering to fear.
The fundamental problem here is the continued over-identification with doing. By attempting to do The Leap, the practitioner is attempting the impossible (as doing and being point to two different realms). Thus far your training has been largely if not entirely immersed in the relative domain. With Being, your training is stepping beyond this domain into the transcendent. Fundamentally, there is nothing you can do to be.
