Overcoming fear and ignorance is the key to reaching a supreme degree of self realization.
Let’s start with how to eradicate fear.
What is fear? Fear is a paralyzing emotion (energy+motion) caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. It’s your mind and body reacting to an event or phenomena that is only real or materialized in your head.
Whereas danger is the actual possibility or circumstance inducing a response, not just something in your head.
One is real. The other one isn’t.
The key to overcoming fear is knowledge. We fear things we don’t understand. The fear comes from not knowing how to properly respond or perceive the thing making us afraid.
Here’s an example. If you’re afraid of dogs, and you want to change that, you have to get knowledge of what a dog is, why it is, where it comes from. Learn about the particular features, characteristics and history of dogs, specifically those that scare you the most. Then put that knowledge in motion by interacting with dogs, using that knowledge you just acquired. After that, you will understand the nature of the dog and how you should properly respond to or perceive dogs in general. If you wan’t to take it even further, you could build your life around dogs, living a culture based around dogs. Then you would truly have the power over your fear. This is how you turn knowledge into power.
As the saying goes, “a coward dies a thousand deaths, a soldier dies but one.” Don’t be the coward.
This same process can be used to learn the science of everything in life. There’s nothing we can’t learn if we apply universal principles to our learning processes.
Before you can do anything, you have get to the knowledge first. Then once you acquire the information you have to put in motion. This means ACTION. Not just knowing but using what you know in real time. After a while of doing this you will have a foundation of wisdom to stand on. With time and experience you have mastered how and when to use your knowledge. You understand what’s going on and what it is you’re trying to do. To really get power from the knowledge, you must create and live out a culture based on your understanding.
There’s nothing we should be afraid of, there’s nothing we can’t do, because the universe is mental and the mind is all.
