Face The Fear In You

“He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every day we come up with new challenges, and we fear. One way is to avoid the obstacles and hide in the narrow hole of my comfort zone. Another way is to confront the fear and defeat it with my skills, but first, I’ve to learn those skills. Most people are not willing to do that, so they suffer. Fear rules over them.

I wish I could have told you that life is easy, but my dear, it’s damn hard, and I can’t tell you a lie. The trick is to make yourself better every day to leave the past and move forward.

What is fear?

It’s the past knowledge and bad experiences in your memory. You’re afraid of losing something without questioning whether you’ve anything to lose or not in reality.

What you’re protecting is a self-image created through the conditioning of your mind.

What do you think about yourself?

Isn’t that an assumption?

Meditate on this question, and you’ll get the answer.

Everything that you’ve acquired will vanish into nowhere. The knowledge, the experience, the material possessions, and the thought you’re thinking right now here at this moment.

Then what’s the fear?

Why shall I live in deep fear of losing something, not mine?

Can’t I be as light as a feather and fly like a bird without carrying the heavyweight of past knowledge, experiences, and material possessions?

If I can do that, then what’s the fear?

I can explore the world without fear. I can enter the unknown, and from there, I’ll know something unique that I can say is mine—an experience I didn’t borrow from anyone and knowledge that is not second-hand.

But for that, I have to take the challenge of confronting my fears. I’ve to challenge the deep-down unconscious beliefs running through my mind. I’ve had to uninstall all the software running in my mind since childhood.

Am I ready for that?

Learn from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.

– Albert Einstein
