Origin of fear

Ojai 1982, Public Talk 3

Is it possible to be completely free of fear? Not simply say whether its possible or not impossible.

Fear creates disorder – fear of the past, the present and the future.

Is comparison a factor of fear?

Seeing that, can you live a life without comparing yourself with anybody? Without a single comparison.

Comparison implies striving to become something, and the fear that you may not fulfil.

Where there is comparison, there must be conformity, imitation inwardly.

When you’re seriously concerned with the ending of fear, then there’s no comparison, no becoming.

When the mind sees those factors as bringing about fear, the very perception of that ends the contributory causes.
