Egoic Fear

If you really think about it, fear is simply an emotional response to the thought of not meeting your Ego’s expectation or desire. Fear is a response to nothing real…

Here’s a great quote that puts this in perspective:

All fear is nothing more than the ego’s expectancy of an upcoming contradiction. Most of it is not real. dissipate its power by refusing to buy the emotion. Make fear your friend. Talk to it. Accommodate it as a helper and ally, and most of your fear will change or disappear completely.

- Stuart Wilde, Weight Loss for the Mind
