Fear; Understanding and Accepting the Insecurities of Life

Fear; Understanding and Accepting the Insecurities of Life

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,180 |Likes:
A journey through what makes human beings afraid, into a new relationship with our fearsIn Fear: Understanding and Accepting the Insecurities of Life, Osho takes the reader step by step over the range of what makes human beings afraid—from the reflexive “fight or flight” response to physical danger to the rational and irrational fears of the mind and its psychology. Only by bringing the light of understanding into fear’s dark corners, he says, airing out closets and opening windows, and looking under the bed to see if a monster is really living there, can we begin to venture outside the boundaries of our comfort zone and learn to live with, and even enjoy, the fundamental insecurity of being alive. Fear ends with a series of meditation experiments designed to help readers experience a new relationship with fear and to begin to see fears not as stumbling blocks, but as stepping stones to greater self-awareness and trust.

Fear is as nonsubstantial as your shadow, but it is. The shadow alsoexistsnonsubstantial, negative, but not nonexistential— andsometimes the shadow can have a great impact on you. In a junglewhen the night is approaching you can be rightened o your ownshadow. In a lonely place, on a lonely path, you can start runningbecause o your own shadow. Your running will be real, your es-caping will be real, but the cause will be nonsubstantial. You can run away rom a rope thinking that it is a snake; i youcome back and you look closely and you observe, you will laugh atthe whole stupidity o it. But people are araid to come to placeswhere ear exists. People are more araid o ear than o anythingelse, because the very existence o ear shakes your oundations.The shaking o the oundations is very real, remember.
