Q. What is fear composed of? What is it's essence? I have heard that fear is based in the perception of separateness.
MICHAEL: Fear creates a vacuum as one withdraws from what is feared. Anger consumes its object. Both are the result of a lack of equilibrium.
We wouldn't say that fear is composed of something so much as it is the
result of a lack of the presence of self.
Biological fear is part of the necessary survival instinct. Emotional fear
generally arises from a misinterpretation of that. Intellectual fear is more
complex--it is part of false personality's defenses. Spiritual fear is from
the knowledge that in facing self, one must change, and that thrusts one
into the unknown. That can trigger biological fear, which is designed to
avoid possible dangers lurking in the physical unknown.
