Go Beyond Fear
Fear and future go hand in hand. You fear the unknown and the new when what has gone past is accepted even though it might have been the worst part of your life. Whatever is yet to happen is the big reason behind fear. If not the future, it is something dear to you that you are afraid of losing but again the dimension is future. Look within and find the source of fear. It is not in the heart but in the mind. And see where fear has taken mankind? On one end, he goes to temples to seek protection and calls himself-God-fearing and on the other, he creates nuclear weapons in the current uncertain reality.
Your entire life and growth get challenged out of fear and every step you take is taken with utmost caution. Restricted and fearful living without any zeal is a mental suicide and one who lives in fear is a closed being. Energy flow in such a being’s body is also improper and fear gives rise to many diseases as well.
Accept your fear like you accept love and jealousy for fear is natural. It comes with a certain situation or expectation and it also goes with the passing of events. Darkness and light have always been around in nature whether we accept darkness or not. If there was no fear, anyone would jump into water or go through fire. But there is a difference between intelligent fear and ignorant fear. When you are unnecessarily afraid of something due to your ignorance or weakness, that fear is to be tackled with some logic else it will spring into multiple disorders like jealousy, hatred, anger and even lunacy.
Who fears the most? It is the one who does not know himself or life. Just like a beggar wins a lottery ticket but is afraid of losing it all one day and becoming the same. But if he accepted his reality while stepping into the life of luxury, there would be no fear. A human comes from earth and goes back to earth and if this reality is known to someone, he will not dwell in fear. Fear of failure and desire to maintain all comforts with further desires to get more never lets one live at ease. So even if all is well, one keeps feeling lost and dull.
If you can connect to your core and become centered there, you will have no fear for that is the seat of the Lord, the lotus of bliss and your ticket to eternity. Once you drop fear, you see the ripples for a few seconds in water and then there is calmness and clarity. And how do you drop fear? By facing it and standing strong and courageous in every situation. Courage is the answer to fear and courage needs strength and will power. Where there is will, there surely is a way and the way is through joy, gratitude and surrender. That equals to a balanced living or samatvam where fear is replaced by peace and love. That is true freedom or liberation of the being.
Follow the path of the Divine where fear is not love is, where death is not but eternal life is. Tread the path of meditation or sadhana and all you will embrace death and the unknown as a part of you and once it is you, it becomes known. Fear not for God is there within, fear not the darkness for it is just a veil to the light that is pure. Become aware and joyous and that joyful awareness will take away all attachment, all illusion and free you from all bondage of your limitlessness. Set your self free and you will become fearless.
