Will we contract another person’s karma when they give advice, or touch them? How vulnerable are we to other people’s karma?


1 Comment

Understand, you cannot get karma from somebody else. You have enough of your own! So do not bother about catching karma from another person.

Either by touching or by giving advice or by close physical contact or physical proximity, karma can never be passed on. You may acquire the mental setup of that person in close proximity, if you are continuously around him, but never his or her karma. Of course, you have to be mentally strong so that you don’t get his or her mental setup! But if you are solid within yourself through the clicks that have happened in you, even this won’t affect you in any way.

Understand one more thing, I do not interfere with your karma. Like how when the sun rises the darkness disappears on its own, in the same way in the presence of the master the karma gets burnt.

Karma, like darkness, has got only negative existence. It does not have a positive existence.

What I mean is that you cannot take it and throw it out like how you can take say a microphone and throw it out. Just like how lightlessness is only called darkness, karma is just lack of inner light in us. It is just ignorance. It is energylessness. (more…)

Why do we compare ourselves with others? Because we forgot that all of the confidence, intelligence, and vibrant energy that we need already exists inside us!

Emotions of fear, desire and guilt are subjective emotions. What I mean by this is that you do not need another person or even an object to create these emotions. Imagine that you are in a sound-proofed room with your eyes closed and with nothing to touch, taste or smell. You can still feel the emotions of fear or desire. But to compare yourself with another person and to feel jealous of him, you need the presence of another person.

Jealousy is therefore an objective emotion.

It needs an object to be activated. Jealousy starts from comparison. We always compare ourselves with others in various fields like looks, wealth, knowledge, name and fame and friends to name a few. When we compare ourselves with others we feel that somebody else has something more than what we have and we get caught in jealousy.

Comparison is the seed and jealousy is the fruit! (more…)

if you take full responsibility of deciding whether it is right or wrong, you can avoid all guilt feelings!


No Comments

Many times you justify your guilt by labeling it as responsibility. No! How does one differentiate between guilt and responsibility? If you get into a low feeling when you think about it, it is guilt. If you feel intensity and integrity, it is responsibility. This is the clear scale. If you are pulled to low energy at the thought of what you did, then it is guilt. But if you feel good about it, then it is responsibility. Falling into guilt is a clear way of escaping responsibility. Once a man came to me complaining, ‘I am suffering. I have fourteen children.’ I asked him why he chose to have so many children. He replied, ‘Why? God gave me!’ The problem is, we do all that we want to do without taking responsibility for it. After doing it, we feel god made us do it! If we take up responsibility for every action, we will never land up in guilt or trouble.

All guilt related to extramarital affairs comes under this category of sheer lack of responsibility in behavior. Be very clear that extramarital affairs clearly show disrespect to another being, your spouse. You have no right to disrespect another being.

What is the meaning of the relationship of marriage?

Let me explain. Man as such is centered on muladhara chakra or the lust energy center in the body, and woman is centered on the swadhishthana chakra or the fear energy center in the body. That is why man gives in to lust easily and woman gives in to fear easily.

If you see during the traditional vedic marriage ceremony, in front of the sacred fire considered to be a representation of god, the man promises to the woman, ‘I shall give you security and release you from insecurity (fear).’ The woman promises to the man, ‘I shall give you love and free you from lust.’ Both of them decide to liberate the other from their weaknesses.

It is Integrity to your desire which allows the proper conversion of the desire to knowledge and action!

Fear and desire are the fundamental energies that drive our lives. We act either out of a desire to achieve something or reach somewhere, or out of a fear of not wanting to experience something. Attraction and repulsion are not merely forces of molecules, but also essential to human behavior.

One of the major driving forces in human life is desire. If you look into your life, you can see most of the time we are driven by either desire or fear.

We have so many desires and often we feel we don’t have energy to fulfill them. According to the Jain tradition, the Divine sends us with enough energy and capacity to fulfill all our desires. But most of us don’t feel this way. Why? (more…)

Whenever you have physical pain, whenever you have mental suffering, try this technique to be healed that very moment!

Look into the blue sky beyond the clouds. Normally, we only look into the clouds and pass judgment on them as ‘beautiful clouds’, ‘dark clouds’ and what not. Now, do not get caught in clouds. Clouds are like thoughts, like dreams. Look beyond the clouds into the blue sky, the vast emptiness.

If you look at the clouds, your mind will start thinking something. If you look at the sky beyond the clouds, your mind will stop working! If you start looking at the stars, again you will start thinking. Seeing the clouds means getting stuck with your thoughts. Seeing the stars means getting stuck with spiritual visions and experiences. Don’t do either.

Just look into the empty, vast and open blue sky. Just lie down. Do not support your head with a pillow. Otherwise you will fall asleep. Just lie down and stare at the sky, the vast empty space.

Just gaze at the sky. You may experience fear. If you just gaze without looking at the clouds or counting the stars you will experience fear because the idea of your boundary is getting lost. Don’t bother about the fear.

If you are doing it properly you will have fear. If you are gazing and managing to think, you will not experience the fear because you are still caught in the boundary of the body. It is like back-seat driving. You are gazing and your mind is thinking.

Just gaze, do not think. After some time, suddenly you will realize you have forgotten your body for a few minutes. The link, the shaft of thoughts that you normally create has suddenly disappeared. This can’t happen if you are expecting it to happen.

Don’t expect, ‘When will I lose my thoughts? When will I lose the shaft?’ Just gaze without bothering about anything.

When you see that in the last few seconds there were no thoughts, just close your eyes and bring the whole outer space into the inner space. Visualize the same thing inside you. Suddenly you will see you are having the same thing inside. There are no thoughts, no stars. There is just vast space.

If you are having knee pain, try this technique. Just gaze at the sky. Suddenly when you remember that for the last few seconds you did not have thoughts, take that whole space inside your knee where you have pain. The pain will simply disappear in a few seconds.

Whenever you have physical pain, whenever you have mental suffering, try this technique. That very moment you will be healed. That very moment you will simply see the inner healing happening inside you.

Apart from the healing, if you are a seeker looking for spiritual growth, it will also bring you tremendous energy and quantum experiences. You will have a quantum jump in your growth.

Pain is always born from resistance to the present moment!

Often, Fear manifests itself as pain. The most frightening thing in the world is pain.

All living beings are afraid of one thing, and that is pain. If you look deeply, you will find that people don’t fear even death as much as they fear the pain and agony they will undergo at the time of death! Many are afraid of poverty, many of relationships, and many others fear disease.

The root cause of all these fears is the pain that happens while going through these things. All these fears are because of the fear of pain.

Pain can be physical, mental or emotional.

Physical pain is a basic necessity for the body. Just imagine, if we could feel no pain in our body we might accidentally hurt ourselves or start styling our faces, hands, and legs the way we style our hair today! Actually, pain is a letter of request, written by the body to the mind, saying, ‘Please pay attention to me!’ because attention is energy. When attention is given to a particular area, that attention becomes energy for that area. When the body communicates pain, it is actually asking for attention or energy, which will help it heal.

Mental or emotional pain is the psychological feeling that arises when you are faced with something you don’t like. Research shows that emotional pain can deeply disturb the physical body. For example, the psychological feelings that arise with sexual repression can result in lower back disorders, or the pain of shouldering too much responsibility can cause pain in the shoulders.

Swadhishtana Chakra Meditation to liberate yourself from fear!


2 Comments

Step 1.

  • Remember the swadhishtana.
  • Be aware intensely of the being center, two inches below the navel.
  • Intensely chant the “hoo” kara by producing the sound hooooo, through the mouth as you exhale as loudly and as long as possible.
  • This will create a vibration effect around your mouth.
  • Allow any fear that comes up to come up.
  • If you are trembling or shaking or feeling disturbed, it is ok.
  • Intensely chant the hoo kara mantra.

Step 2:

  • Relax in the being center.

Pure greed is intense bliss or excitement. Pure fear is intense peace.

Through bliss, you can achieve. Through peace also, you can achieve. Relax into the peace, and you will see that you are completely alive!

If you can face your fears, you see they have no depth!


No Comments

The biggest fear human beings have is the fear of losing their identity. Even the fear of losing one’s life is not as great as the fear of losing the identity. The fear of losing your identity is much worse than the fear of death.

All our fears, be it fear of losing physical health, mental stability, wealth, name and fame, or loved ones, are actually fear of death under various disguises.

The social fear or fear of being rejected by society makes us do things to please society, even when it is not good for us. In this process, many times, we sacrifice what our being really wants to do. That fear of not being accepted by society is just another form of the fear of death. It is the death of the ego.

Every act of ours is unconsciously related to death and the fear of dying. Understanding death can change your entire perception of life. It can simply transform the way you handle all your fears. Fear is what leads to anger. Fear is the passive form of the energy while anger is the active expression.
When you are angry, just look into the anger. At the root of it, you will find a deep fear.

Try this for yourself:

if you are feeling fear, express anger at that time. Throw your hands, stamp your feet and express the energy. You will see that the fear disappears. You will see for yourself how fear can simply transform to anger. Similarly, fear can also transform to hate. You just need to be aware of yourself and witness how the emotions subtly change from one form to another. When you understand this play, you can easily get out of the game. (more…)

Fear is a powerful energy which gives a deep relaxation, a deep centeredness when you don’t fight with it!


1 Comment

You cannot conquer fear. Fearlessness means intelligence to live the intense fear without directing it towards any object. When there is no object to be afraid of, the intense fear will give such an intense relaxation and peace.

Fear is a powerful energy which gives a deep relaxation, a deep centeredness. The fear center is the rejuvenation center.

Fearlessness is not suppressing fear.

For example, when you are afraid to cross a dark area in the night, you start thinking of and repeating god’s name. Because of fear, god’s name will be topmost in your mind! You feel that you don’t have fear because your inner chatter is engaged in something else! When you engage your inner chatter in something else, you feel that you are out of fear. But you have only diverted your attention, you haven’t solved the problem completely.

There is a saying, ‘When a cat drinks milk, it will close its eyes tight and think that the whole world has become dark, and therefore, nobody can see it!’ Understand, you also do the same thing when you don’t pay attention to the fear, and then believe that the fear has disappeared.

Fearlessness does not mean non-existence of fear. It means the fear is there, but you have tremendous energy or courage to live with it and face it. Fearlessness means having the energy or the courage to live even with the maximum fear. It is going beyond that fear and being neither attached to nor detached from the fear.

One more important thing you should know is fear is part of the nature of life.

Fear is a deeper dimension of worry. Worry can cause ulcers. Fear on the other hand can even destroy life. However, unlike worry without which life is possible, fear seems woven into our lives. It is possible to face fear without fear. A person who we call courageous is not one without fear, but one who has learnt to face fear without fear.

Fear is a form of energy inside us. That is why it cannot be destroyed. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be changed from one form to another. Understand, your fear is directly connected to your life energy. Whenever you are facing a survival threat, you will see your fear rising and the adrenalin release happening in your body. That adrenalin release gives you so much energy that you can almost fly. We call it the fight or flight response – either you face the fear and fight, or you run away. There will be so much energy in your body the moment you face a survival threat. Whenever that threat is real, the swadhishthana chakra, the seat of life, gets completely shaken!

When there is pure desire or pure greed in you without any object in particular, it becomes the overflowing energy of creation, expansion, or Big Bang! For no reason, you simply explode with energy. In the same way, when there is pure fear in you without any object in particular, it becomes contraction, black hole. Fear is your nature, but don’t direct it towards any object. Having fear is natural. But connecting the fear to an object is societal. Pure fear helps in survival and it is spontaneous. (more…)

We all have a part of our brain that controls our actions such as breathing, digestion and such activities that the body does automatically, involuntarily. Nature has designed a fail-safe system in a part of our brain called hypothalamus. This part of the brain also includes what biologists refer to as the reptilian brain. Behavioral scientists often talk about the fight or flight response. When the body-mind system perceives a danger to our survival the hypothalamus is alerted by our unconscious mind. The unconscious mind functions at speeds a million times faster than the conscious mind. So even before we consciously become aware of danger, we instinctively become alert. The hypothalamus activates the pituitary gland, the master gland, which then activates the adrenalin glands that secrete the adrenalin hormone, which is pumped into our extremities, the hands and legs. We then get ready for the ‘fight or flight’ reaction – either the energy prepares us to fight the threat or to run away from the threat. The unconscious reptilian brain takes the decision to release chemicals into our body to protect us. This worked very well in the days of the caveman when he faced lions and tigers. He had to be ready even without thinking to fight or run away.

To study the effect of adrenalin on human beings today, experiments were carried out on athletes. Sprinters were lined up at the starting block and moments before the pistol was raised to signal to them to start running, the umpire lowered his arm. So, the sprinters had to fall back and reposition themselves. This was repeated six times. Without even running a meter the sprinters collapsed at the starting block! The adrenalin level in their bodies had become dangerously high. The life saving adrenalin can become a killer when it is produced without reason.

The chances of our meeting a tiger or a lion are quite slim these days. Nevertheless our unconscious mind keeps sending signals of such danger. I call them ‘fear strokes’. Psychologists estimate that we face at least half a dozen such fear strokes every day. These fear strokes produce large quantities of adrenalin in us. It has been established that depression is a direct result of such adrenalin production. Depression in turn is considered to be the main cause of many chronic and fatal illnesses. Medical research has found that many young people in rich countries, even teenagers, have arteries so badly blocked that their arteries are similar to sixty-year-old people! Doctors have established that the physical condition is only one part of the problem. A much larger part is the emotional condition. It is now fairly well established that an emotional trigger causes the immediate onset of a heart attack or stroke, even though the physical condition may have been present for a long time. Nowadays, cardiac physicians routinely request people to fill in a questionnaire on stress factors in addition to conventional tests to determine how prone they are to cardiac problems. Doctors have found that major traumas in life such as death of a loved one, loss of job, loss of money and even transfers in job and moving houses can be serious stress factors that can lead to heart attacks.

What is true of heart attacks is true of many non-life threatening but highly debilitating ailments such as backaches, migraines and ulcers. The underlying emotional or psychological factor is far more relevant than the superficial physiological causes.

Enriching is the amazing, ultimate, secure, showering lifestyle!

Please understand, I am defining this word “coveting”. “Kasyasvid” (कस्यस्विद्) I am defining. Anything which you take from others, which is not enriching them, is “coveting”. Anything, by enriching them, they offer, is “offering”. Understand, the whole life, all transactions, either covet, coveting or offering. Whether it is a simple smile, or billion dollar, simple smile, or billion dollar, anything, if you are enriching, and they share it, it is “offering”. If you are not enriching, and taking it, it is “coveting”. I tell you, keep your accounts free; that is the best way to prepare yourself for your death!

My accounts is free. This moment if I want to leave the body, my accounts is free. I have not coveted anything from anybody. It was always enriching, enriching, enriching, enriching. From that anybody shared anything, that was “offered”. So, the cycle of life, I have functioned in this cycle of life only by enriching, enriching, enriching.

Decide! Please listen! It has nothing to do with quantity. Sometimes, even a small stone will be stuck. Sometimes even this huge stone ball can be rotating in the water. I have seen in these fountains, where pressurized water lifts the huge stone ball, and that stone ball rotates in the pressurized water. So, when you are flowing with enriching, your whole life will flow beautifully like the ball rotating or floating in the water. No friction. All around you, life is completely lubricated. No incompletion. All around you, life is beautifully flowing. So decide, whether it is your career, personal life, relationships…..even with your body! Even with your body, don’t covet pleasure from your body. Whenever your body feels tired and you continue to do some action because you think it brings pleasure, it is “coveting” from your own body. Whether it is relationship with your body, relationship with other person, your career, your attitude towards life and world, human society, anybody, decide, from today – “Maa Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam” (मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम्). “Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Maa Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam” (तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम्).

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।
Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Whatever is moving in the moving world is enveloped by Consciousness

I should use the word “filled”. Even “enveloped” is an incomplete word. “Filled”! “Enveloped” means, something which is getting enveloped is away from what is enveloped. No!

Listen! “Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath” (यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत्) – “Whatever you think as moving in ever-moving world” – it means, “moving”, “change”, is your perception and factual. Listen! Many times your perception is not factual, your factual is not truth, your truth is not reality. Listen! I am organizing words – Perception, Fact, Truth, Reality.

· PERCEPTION: Earth is flat. Sun goes around the Earth.

· FACT: Earth is round. Earth only is going around the Sun.

· TRUTH: Listen! Earth is not exactly round. And, Sun is going around the Earth.

· REALITY: How the Earth looks, see it from Google map. And Earth and Sun both are going around each other! (more…)

Visualize your inner space is the road. The nail or the thorn sticking out on the road is your fear and greed. Your car tyre is Time. if the Time moves smoothly on the Space, there is no incompletion. If it moves on the nail or the stone then your tyre becomes flat, you cant move further. So always, if you hold the inner space consciously without fear or greed you will never create incompletions. For it to be reality, go back to the incompletions created where all you put the nail and the stone (Fear and Greed); relive so when the time moves into the space you may go back to the space and same Time and relive BUT it is happening NOW! Please understand you may go back to the past but you are in present. Going back to the past while you are in the present is called completion! Going forward while you are in the present is inspiration! What you are going to do if you visualize that is inspiration when you are in the present !

Enriching makes you enlightened


No Comments

Most of us have a pattern of fear of facing conflicts, fear of getting cornered.  This is one of the biggest fear human beings carry.  Please listen.  Why people are not Enriching others?  Why you are afraid of Enriching others into Inner Awakening?  Because you are afraid of getting questions, you are afraid of facing questions. I tell you, exactly for that reason only you have to Enrich. Constantly put yourself in a challenging positions, conflicting places, contradicting situations. Constantly put yourself in a place where you are cornered.  I tell you, only then you will be alive, fresh, living. You will be radiating, you will be in your peak possibility. If you want to be successful in your business start enriching people for Inner Awakening you will constantly face conflicts, contradictions. You will constantly put yourself in a challenging positions, places. That will train and sharpen your whole intelligence and consciousness; you will be successful in your business.

When you start Enriching people to live Integrity, Authenticity, the first question they will ask you is, ‘Are you living in Integrity and Authenticity?’  And then naturally you have to declare, ‘Yes, I am living!’  The moment you declare, now you have become responsible for your words; simply you have to live it!  Otherwise, they are going to constantly question you.  They are going to be constantly making fun of you.  So, I tell you, when you start Enriching others, you put yourself in a space, in a situation where you live Integrity, Authenticity.  You live the Dhamma.  I tell you, that is where you will really, really, really live spiritual strength.  When you are Enriching, you have to make declarations, because people are not going to believe you.  They will question you.  You have to make a lot of declarations.  That declarations will make you live the four tattwas more powerfully, more strongly.  That is why I am telling you, Enriching makes you continuously getting enlightened.  

I tell you, when you enrich somebody with the Inner Awakening, you give the best things, best thing to that person. He himself becomes a complete being, understand. See, for example, you are in the field of engineer, or lawyer, or a doctor, if you understand whatever you are doing is Enriching and continue to live, only you will be Enriching but if you give Inner Awakening as an Enriching to others, you make others also Enriching. That is the Ultimate Enriching.

Your fear knows how to manifest itself as reality. Your fear will attract exactly the same thing which you are afraid of. If you are constantly having the fear that you may get cancer, you will attract and manifest exactly the same thing. Understand, you can never get out of your fears or your patterns. You can only unclutch from them.

Just pick up 10 major patterns which drives you. For example – pattern of getting irritated the moment I see my spouse, pattern of creating confusion and dilemma in me…pick up any 10 patterns. This one month – from this Poornima (full moon) to next – decide to concentrate on these ten patterns and unclutch from them. Keep this 10 patterns in your book in your bedroom and practice. You will master them. Then next month, take up the next set of ten patterns.

Instead of fighting wildly, violently, take on ten patterns. If you try to unclutch from all patterns at once, you will surely fail. And if you fail two or three times, then the failing becomes accepted, acknowledged, approved lifestyle. This is one of the worst thing that can happen to a seeker. That is why I am saying, just pick up ten patterns, break them in one month. Suddenly you will see oh God! What a beautiful way it has happened! Just one move corrected liberates you so easily. Understand, even if you break ten patterns, you will be out of this suffering, this ignorance, this nonsense.

Nirbhaya Dhyana – Death Meditation


No Comments

Every fear you accumulate, every fear makes you feel agitated, every fear which you do not want to think or remember – go through, go into all those fears consciously neither deciding to save yourself from that fear nor having greed to achieve what you are afraid of. So without having the greed or fear enter into the fear. Naturally the fear will lose its quality of fear when you do not carry fear or greed for the fear. Greed has its quality of greed because you are greed for greed and fear about the greed. Same way the fear has the quality of fear because you are fear for the fear and indirect greed towards the fear. So when your fears are approached with fearlessness and greedlessness, the straightening out of your consciousness every day happens.

The change of consciousness from Jagrath to Swapna, Swapna to Sushupthi ; The waking state to dream state and dream state to the deep sleep state happens because your awareness is not straightened out. Either the bumps of the fear or bumps of the greed responsible for your consciousness jumping from waking state to dream state or dream state to deep sleep state. If you remove all the bumps of the fear before falling asleep you will not fall asleep, you will fall into something called restful awareness, which is recorded by the word – Turiya – by the earlier mantra drashtas. So the word Turiya denotes the state of falling into the restful awareness without the bumps of fear or greed. Every night remove all the bumps you created during your day time through fear or greed. Continous practice of removing all the bumps of fear and greed by facing them will help you to fall into the state of Turiya. This is what Mahadeva calls as Death process – Nirbhaya Dhyana.

Socrates was killed by being forced to drink the juice of the poisonous herb called hemlock. 

Just before he drank the poison, one of his disciples asked him, “Master, are you not afraid of dying? You appear to be so calm”.

Socrates replied, “Why should I be ? I know that only two things can happen after death. Either I will continue to exist, in some other form or name, or I will cease to exist after death. In the first case, there is nothing to worry about. In the second case, who will remain to worry? So either way, there is nothing to fear!”.

Morality makes you totally dull and dead!


No Comments

Morality always instills fear. In our lives, morality is nothing but a poor substitute for intelligence. When you act out of your own intelligence, you can be confident of yourself. But when you act out of rules and regulations, you can never be sure of yourself, because you are not yourself to start with! You are not centered in yourself; you are centered on the rules. People who preach morality are so deeply in fear. That is why they preach about it. They are afraid either because they are unsure of themselves or because they know to be moral only with fear. Moralists can become neurotic with their concept of morality and discipline. 

Once there was a moralist who normally walked on the streets with carefully measured steps. 

One day it suddenly began raining very heavily. 

The moralist just followed the crowd and ran along. 

After running for a while, he realized that he was careless about his manner. He said to himself, “What am I doing! Running is undignified. A gentleman must correct his mistakes regretfully if he has made any”. 

So he returned in the rain to the place where he had begun running, and walked again, with measured steps. 

When I tell you this, I am not telling you that this is a free world and you can do anything you like. I am telling you that you have to develop your own intelligence and live so that rules will only be a confirmation of what you already know and feel. This is real intelligence. Any proper rule will only be a confirmation of what the rightly flowered intelligence feels. So drop your fears and try to find your inner intelligence, your inner master.

Fear of God ?


1 Comment

Understand, God knows better than you know yourself. So there is no reason to fear Him or please Him. Even better than your mother or father, God knows you. He knows you not only in this birth but in all the births that you have taken until now. You are an open book in front of Him. He can refer to any page at any time! So drop your fear of God and look upon Him as a totality of Existence. Look upon Him as the ultimate friend. However hard society tries to make you afraid of God, don’t listen to it. Develop your own relationship with God – a solid and trusting one – the only relationship that is required in your life. 

When you start relating with Existence or God, you start relating with yourself much better than before. You will know what exactly is going on inside you. Your inner intelligence will grow. Your fears will drop. You will learn to look properly into anything before feeling fear about it. You will not feel any compulsion to do anything. Intelligence will replace fear. You will be more relaxed and joyful. You will feel liberated.

How to handle fear without fear ?


No Comments

First of all understand that all small fears are mere projections of the ultimate fear of death. Second, don’t resist the fear in fearyou. Just keep repeating to yourself that you are scared and go through it, that’s all! You will soon find that the fear is no longer there because you saw it through. Start doing this every time you feel fear. When you consciously work on this, you will understand that what you call fear is nothing but your response or reaction to an incident or thought. Depending on how you respond, you can claim that you did not have fear or had fear. And, with more and more awareness, you can respond towards fear without fear. Remember one thing: No one can claim to be fearless. One can learn to handle fear without fear, that’s all. If anyone professes to be fearless, be very clear that they have not analyzed deeply the subject of fear and human response to it. Don’t start thinking that they are super-humans and you are a lesser human being.

It is only a question of bringing awareness into our fears. You will then wonder what it was that caused the fear in you!

You can even sit by yourself and imagine that your fears are happening to you. In your imagination, confront them with deep awareness and calmness. If you suffer in the process of visualization, it is alright. Don’t suppress it or punish it.  If your body shakes with fear, let it. Just co-operate with it.Anything suppressed only takes up another form. It doesn’t get uprooted totally. So, suppression is not the way to overcome fear. Awareness is the way. In fact, if you suppress fear, you are missing the chance of overcoming it. Anything when lived out completely will have no effect over you. All your fears are simply fear of your fears, that’s all. 

When you continuously look into your fears with awareness, even when death comes, you will look into it with awareness and allow it to happen to you. It is important to be able to do this because ultimately all your fears are nothing but the fear of death. When you work on your day-to-day fears, your fear of death unconsciously decreases, and when your fear of death decreases, your day-to-day fears decrease! It is virtuous cycle.
