I often meet people who suffer from fear of death, fear towards changes in life and fear of loosing what they posess. This type of fear is natural; it is a very deep rooted impresion in our memory. We can observe this type of fear even in small insects. Nevertheless, animals and insects are governed by nature but us, human beings, are endowed with discriminating faculty – we have the necessary intelligence for deeper realizations of life.
As long as we are not aware about our Spirit, about our real Self, we identify ourselves with the body, mind,qualification, roles and ego. All these are ever changing, therefore, identifying with them is bound to bring fear and pain. Deep within us, we know that we can not hold on to this body or anything in this world forever. However, after going through suffering and pain repeatedly, many of us want to let go of these fears; and seek for freedom and liberation. Fortunately, this is a simple thing to learn. With simple mindful inquiry like you call the body `My body’ isnt’ it?
Did you ever think about the one who calls it “my body”? Fear and stress can be minimized or can even be overcome by regular practice of meditation, mindfulness and yogic breathing,These practices make you to discover and gradually learn to follow your Intuition (sixth sense). This way you grow over limited idea about yourself and start exploring and experiencing your Spirit, your real Self, which is ever free from death and from any kind of suffering or pain.It is such a great joy, a repeated `Wow!` experience to gradually drop old patterns and beliefs.This is real inner revolution and evolution.
