How I Found The Presence Within When I Had My Panic Attack

I had a panic attack this morning. I think the last time I had one was also my first, when I was caught in the midst of the Hong Kong protest alone.⁣

The same feelings assailed me. I felt cold all over, my heart was racing a million miles per hour.  ⁣

I left multiple voice notes on @lifeisjustastorywritten my soul friend's phone, frightened by the liminal space between reality and dream of 4 in the morning.⁣

The veil was so thin. I knew I felt a Presence in me. This loving awareness. I prayed to find solace, to find peace. ⁣

I knew what drove me into the dark night of the soul. ⁣

I recently placed a bet on myself. I made a decision to step up on my dreams and purposes in service of others.⁣

That is the most terrifying thing. Placing a bet on myself. ⁣

How many times have we really done that? How many of you have had the courage to do that?⁣

I ask because I woke up and saw it so clearly,⁣

That we are all capable of placing this bet on ourselves and believing fully in our capacity to deliver. ⁣

This was what I did.⁣
