But it's not.
Fear, itself, the feeling of fear is the problem, not the person, not the situation, not the thing (unless it happens to be a hungry Tiger on the footpath :-) - That's a different kind of fear... )
Fear says: "hey this person, Hey this new idea, they are the problem !
Fight them, and you will be free of fear!
Is it a deal ?"
And if I fight in order to be free of fear, am I not really just fighting to feel different? fighting for myself ?
I don't even 'see' the person, the idea, I'm afraid of, I'm just fighting to 'feel better'.
I haven't left myself, no matter what beautiful reasons I tell others to justify my fight.
Fear is a liar.
One I too often believe.....
