Fear

“If we become angry at our anger, we will have two angers at the same time.  We only have to observe it with love and attention.  If we take care of our anger in this way, without trying to run away from it, it will transform itself.  This is peacemaking.  If we are peaceful in ourselves, we can make peace with our anger.  We can deal with depression, anxiety, fear, or any unpleasant feeling in the same way.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace is Every Step

The fear of death is the fear of time.

The fear of death is the fear of time.

Picture Quote Text:

“The fear of death is fear of time.  And the fear of time is, deeply down, fear of unlived moments, of an unlived life.  So what to do?  Live more, and live more intensely.  Live dangerously.  It is your life.  Don’t sacrifice it for any sort of foolishness that has been taught to you.  It is your life: Live it!  Don’t sacrifice it for words, theories, countries or politics.  Don’t sacrifice it for anybody.  Live it!  Don’t think that it is courageous to die.  The only courage is to live life totally; there is no other courage.” ~ Osho, The Art of Living and Dying

“The fear is not of death, the fear is of time, and if you look deeply into it then you find that the fear is of an unlived life – you have not been able to live.  If you live, then there is no fear.  If life comes to a fulfillment there is no fear.  If you have enjoyed, attained the peaks that life can give – if your life has been an orgasmic experience, a deep poetry vibrating within you, a song, a festival, a ceremony, and you lived each moment of it to its totality – then there is no fear of time.  Then the fear disappears.” ~ Osho, The Art of Living and Dying

“Fear is a conditioned response: a life-sucking habit that can easily consume your energy, creativity and spirit if you are not careful.  When fear rears its ugly head, beat it down quickly.  The best way to do that is to do the thing you fear.  Understand the anatomy of fear.  It is your own creation.  Like any other creation, it is just as easy to tear it down as it is to erect it.  Methodically search for and then destroy every fear that has secretly slid into the fortress of your mind.  This alone will give you enormous confidence, happiness and peace of mind.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“Identify the things that are holding you back.  Are you scared of speaking or do you have trouble in your relationships?  Do you lack a positive attitude or do you need more energy?  Make a written inventory of your weaknesses.  Satisfied people are far more thoughtful than others.  Take the time to reflect on what it is that might be keeping you from the life you really want to know deep down you can have.  Once you have identified what your weaknesses are, the next step is to face them head on and attack your fears.  If you fear public speaking, sign up to give twenty speeches.  If you fear starting a new business or getting out of a dissatisfying relationship, muster every ounce of your inner resolve and do it.  This might be the first taste of real freedom that you have experienced in years.  Fear is nothing more than a mental monster you have created, a negative stream of consciousness.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“By leaning just beyond your fear, you challenge your limits compassionately, without trying to escape the feeling of fear itself.  You step beyond the solid ground of security with an open heart.  You stand in the space of unknowingness, raw and awake.  Here, the gravity of deep being will attend you to the only place where fear is obsolete: the eternal free fall of home.  Where you always are.  Own your fear, and lean just beyond it.  In every aspect of your life.  Starting now.” ~ David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man
