Fear -- or any negative state that persists as a power to punish us -- is the inevitable result of believing that we are something that we are not. Once we see the definitive link between the fear, worry, or anger we feel, and the particular false sense of self that doesn't exist without these punishing states, our choice becomes clear: Either we agree to live with these negative states, ever struggling, in vain, to control any unwanted moment that challenges our false self... Or, we choose to go through that fear, once and for all, in order to see that who we are, in reality, is not who we have imagined ourselves to be.
