No fear

In some things, there are child-like answers, mature answers, then wise answers. At first we think of courage as not being afraid. As we get older, we start to say that courage is action despite fear, but I feel somehow that there is a wise answer beyond this. To have no fear, perhaps, is not always foolish or naive, but to know, down to the core of your being, that there is absolutely nothing to fear.

PS - It will not always be the case that there is nothing to fear, though.
PPS - Perhaps courage is recognising when your fear serves no purpose.
