The Root of Fear
Nevertheless, I'm trying to lay out a path with words about what Jiddu says in the video below:
"Fear exists when there is no attention. If I give full attention to fear, it disappears. If I analyze it, seek someone to help me to deal with it, try to escape from or control it... Then I'm acting actively upon it. This (therefore) strengthens the conflict, and creates more fear.
The actual problem is the division between time (past, present or future events) and thought (mental context of self). The way out is not to identify with the observing self, but to give my full attention to fear when it arises. Going into this sensation as something entirely fresh. Giving it full attention without looking for context... This is the end of fear."
