|FEAR: The Mind Killer
|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.
"Fight" 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).
See below for a series of essays about fear, and "fighting" fear.

|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.”
