‘The feeling of reverence is an internal and silent celebration of being itself. The sensibilities that accompany it are awe and respect rather than fear and separation. Joyful reverence celebrates our being embedded within the whole of reality in a clarity of mind that overcomes fear.’ (The Six Perfections)

This passage follows right after the last one I posted, and this section also has an observation that some religious thinking promotes fear as part of a resistance to change. I think we can be clear about how Buddhism is the former rather than the latter.
