Fear doesn’t spring from ciscumstances. Rather it comes from our thoughts.
When we are in deep sleep and a tiger is nearby, we may still continue to sleep blissfully.
But if we have heard rumors of a tiger lurking in the area, then we may not be able to sleep peacefully, even when we know that we are within four walls.
When our thoughts move, trying to piece together a future where uncertainty seems apparent, our fear levels begin to rise. In reality, none of these may come to pass, but the only tangible feeling we are left behind with in the here and now is fear.
It is good to know what we are really afraid of. Is it a situation itself? Or the uncertainty surrounding it?
99.99% of the times, we do not know how to tackle uncertainty. And our lifestyles of today, always wanting more and more, and sooner and sooner, only makes things worse. As my Guru often reminds us, living / thriving in uncertainty alone is spirituality.
