The Nature of Fear

RRiedell 155

This is one of the best explanations of the nature of fear I have found. Because I live in the age of information, writings like this are available not only to me, but also to anyone who is willing to open their mind to ideas.

You are lost in your imagination, is the basis of your fear.

“The fear is simply because you are not living with life. You are living in your mind. Your fear is always about what is going to happen next. That means your fear is always about that which does not exist. If your fear is about the nonexistent, your fear is 100% imaginary. If you are suffering the non-existential, we call that insanity. Therefore, people may be in just socially accepted levels of insanity. However, if you are afraid, or if you are suffering anything, which does not exist, it amounts to insanity, isn’t it? People are always suffering, either what happened yesterday, or what may happen tomorrow. Therefore, your suffering is always about that which does not exist. Simply because you are not rooted in reality. You are always rooted in your mind. Mind is one part of it is memory, another part is imagination. Both of them are in one-way imagination. Because both of them do not exist right now. You are lost in your imagination that is the basis of your fear. If you are rooted in reality, there would be no fear.”
– Sadhguru.
