Hi everybody

I’ve read on this web site several things about fear. About where it might come from, that it might be a lack of love.

This is what the Indian teacher Krishnamurti (1895-1986) says about fear:

‘In our inner minds we must be able to separate the word from the experience, and once and for all avoid that the word mingles with and plays a role in the direct experience of the feeling; the feeling which is actually there. Once you’ve gone far enough in to this, you will discover that in the unconscious, in the dark corners of our minds, a feeling of absolute, complete loneliness and isolation is buried, and that is the fundamental cause of fear. But you’ll never get past this if you avoid it, run away from it, if you don’t descend in to it without giving it a name. Our mind must come face to face with the fact of complete inner loneliness, and not allow itself to change anything about this fact. This exceptional thing called loneliness is the deepest core of the self, the ‘me’, with all its petty little annoyances, its cunning, its tricks, its veil of words that trap the mind. Only when the human mind can transcendent this loneliness freedom will occur – the absolute freedom of fear. Only then you’ll find out as an individual what reality is, this immeasurable source of energy without beginning or end. But as long as the mind in terms of time generates its own fears, it won’t be able to gain knowledge of what is timeless.’

Another (unknown) author says:

‘To be radically free of fear
You must be aware of the fear
And leave it alone
Without judgement
Without trying to do anything about it. Simply to know
That the fear is there and to be quiet
Evokes a fundamental revolution, in which there is no place for fear.’

Love, Joost
