FEAR: The Mind Killer
Home Page
FEAR: something we are all familiar with; in a myriad manifestations.

Essentially, fear is our response to danger: either real, or "imagined" danger,
with Four possible means of response.

First: Fight/Face
Second: Flight/Flee/Avoid
Third: Freeze
Fourth: Faint

in the context of healing means to face the fear and its origin.
"Flight" in this context means to run from, or "avoid" dealing with the causes (or causes).
"Freeze" means to be so paralyzed by the fear that we are unable to think or
move - not a good situation at all.
"Faint" means exactly what it says: the reaction is s strong that the body/mind
"shuts down" and fainting occurs. This is an even worse response,
(also see
Stress introduction for more detail - as well as Anxiety).

Freezing really isn't an option, for we may very well be in danger:
either physical, or emotional/spiritual.

Fainting, of course, while understandable, is totally unproductive and helpful.

“Fear is the path to the dark side.
Fear leads to anger.
Anger leads to hate.
Hate leads to suffering.”

If this is something that you need to deal with, I've provided resources here on the site

this context, no matter
deal with the its causes,
then we've defeated it
and won't experience
that one again.

Help is available for you
to do  so, here on the
site with its resources,
as well as personal
help. And there are
many other resources
widely available to  you,
in many other places.

Flight or fleeing is
an understandable
response - at least,
it may momentarily
allay the sense and
feeling of danger.

However, there is a
caveat: when feeling
afraid, most of the time
we are in "from" mode,
NOT "to" mode.

Our focus at that moment
is almost totally on
getting out of there,
away from the danger;
we may have some sense
of where we're fleeing to
- but  once the fear has
diminished, we will quickly
discover that although
we avoided it, we ran
in a direction whose
destination has taken
us further from our own
chosen (or wished-for)
path, and while we're
momentarily safe - we
have our work cut out
to get back on track.
Fear has  the power
to side-track us.
