Let fear be your Guide
By Diego Palma
All fears are a reaction to something you believe to be true about a circumstance or situation.
J. Krishnamurti wrote: “It is not that you must be free from fear. The moment you try to free yourself from fear, you create a resistance against fear. Resistance in any form doesn’t end fear. What is needed rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance is understanding fear; that means watch it; learn about it; come directly into contact with it.”
If you were to treat fear like an old friend, you would get more out of it. Fear is your natural true vibration filtered through a belief system that is out of tune with your natural state, your core vibration.
If your definitions of life and reality are in harmony with your natural vibrational state you will experience the circumstances in your life in a joyful loving way. But If you buy into beliefs that are out of alignment with your natural state, then you will experience the same energy as the sensation you call fear and anxiety. Fear and excitement are the same energy… you experience them differently because of what you filter them through.
Fear is there to tell us that we are holding a belief that is out of alignment with our natural state. Fear is just a self correcting mechanism… a messenger knocking at your door. It arrises to let you know that you have definitions in your consciousness that are out of alignment. „Pay attention to this… this is something that needs your focus, your attention.”
So don’t push away fear. It will return and blow your house down until it completes the job of bringing your attention to the belief system that is out of alignment. Be friends with fear and use it for the job it was designed to do.
We can use the analogy of a piano. If you are playing a song on the piano and all at the sudden, you hit a sour key, a flat note, you do not usually run away from the piano screaming in terror and swearing you will never play it again.
Usually you say “Ah, this is out of tune, I must tune that particular key.” And this is what fear is, it is like a sour key, a flat key, an out of tune key, it must be tuned. The definition must be tuned and bring it back into harmony with the rest of your keys.
Find out what are you scared of. That’s how you know where to go. Follow the fear. Go into it and light it up. Inside your fear is your next door, the next thing holding you in. Let fear be your guide.
