Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future . If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure . Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.
What is a fear of living? It's being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness . The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself - for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don't know what you're here to do, then just do some good.
Always do what you are afraid to do. Never be afraid to sit a while and think. What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance , is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
