Atoms are driven by consciousness. In proximity to love, they move in harmonious collaboration with other atoms. When in proximity to fear, they become disharmonious and chaotic. We choose each moment the energy that surrounds us.

We are so trained in the thought system of fear and attack that we get to the point where natural thinking – love – feels unnatural and unnatural thinking – fear – feels natural. It takes real discipline and training to unlearn the thought system of fear.

The real destroyer of inner peace is fear and distrust. Fear develops frustration, frustration develops anger, anger develops violence.

We’re hallucinating. And that’s what this world is: a mass hallucination, where fear seems more real than love. Fear is an illusion. Our craziness, paranoia, anxiety and trauma are literally all imagined.

How do we end fear?

We
are discussing something which needs your attention, not your agreement
or disagreement. We are looking at life most rigorously, objectively,
clearly—not according to your sentiment, your fancy, what you like or
don’t like. It’s what we like and don’t like that has created this
misery. All that we are saying is this: “How do we end fear?” That’s one
of our great problems, because if a human being can’t end it he lives
in darkness everlastingly, not everlastingly in the Christian sense but
in the ordinary sense; one life is good enough. For me, as a human
being, there must be a way out and not by creating a hope in some
future. Can I as a human being end fear, totally; not little bits of it?
Probably you’ve never put this question to yourself, and probably
you’ve not put the question because you don’t know how to get out of it.
But if you did put that question most seriously, with the intention of
finding out not how to end it, but with the intention of finding out the
nature and the structure of fear, the moment you have found out, fear
itself comes to an end; you don’t have to do anything about it.


When we are aware of it and come into contact with it directly, the
observer is the observed. There is no difference between the observer
and the thing observed. When fear is observed without the observer,
there is action, but not the action of the observer acting upon fear.

We have a fear of facing ourselves. That is the obstacle. Experiencing the innermost core of our existence is very embarrassing to a lot of people. A lot of people turn to something that they hope will liberate them without their having to face themselves. That is impossible. We can’t do that. We have to be honest with ourselves. We have to see our gut, our excrement, our most undesirable parts. We have to see them. That is the foundation of warriorship, basically speaking. Whatever is there, we have to face it, we have to look at it, study it, work with it and practice meditation with it.

If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry.

The plan of spiritual evolution is marked not only by God’s will that we move ever in the direction of love, nut also by another of God’s creative principles: that humanity has free will. What that means is that in any given moment, it is our choice whether we move toward love or retreat from it. What is not love is fear. But in the larger scheme of things, there is a limit past which lovelessness cannot remain. Fear is not life-giving enough to sustain itself. We can move in the direction of fear only so long before it brings us to our knees, or to our end.

If you go deeper and deeper into your own heart, you’ll be living in a world with less fear, isolation and loneliness.
