I want to speak about fear today, fear that appears for failure in exams, fear that appears for being unsuccessful, fear of emotional issues, fear of death, and fear of different matters.
When fear gets strong it makes us palsied and our moves will combine with fear, these moves will make fear stronger, for example: someone who is about to being dropped from mountain tries to make the rope steady but instead he will lose the rope and he will drop, or someone who is waiting to play in a concert while having fear tries to tune his tool but it becomes out of tune and this makes him even more afraid, in this example the person tries to fix something with fear but this effort makes the situation worse and his fear stronger.
Fear is along mankind in any case, but the point is these fears are our lessons, fear is not always bad and sometimes it is useful helping us prevent bad things from happening. Fear is divided to two kinds: deterrent fear which is destructive and dissuasive, and conservator fear which brings safety.
For example imagine someone who wants to pass a highway, in this case fear has a conservator role which brings safety, sometimes being courageous is close to being foolish, we need knowledge in order to discern between these two.
As mentioned before fear is not always destructive, but the important matter is how fear appears and is it single or not. Fear appears in special situations, when we are doing something or we are about to do something, like participating in a competition but sometimes it is not about doing something and fear exists in human’s invisible attributes because of involvement of human’s sense.
What makes us empowerment to do things will help us to gain knowledge about fear.
Mankind needs a potential or puissance to act, for example someone decides to jump 2 meters, he needs a potential energy to do so, but having puissance to act and having authority over it are two different issues, sometimes we have the strength inside but it is not under our control. In desirable conditions the act will be done well but in undesirable conditions it is not so. Person may jump 2 meters in desirable condition but in unpleasant conditions the record becomes 1.5 meters, which record is reliable? None of them is reliable, maybe the least one.
There is always an internal factor and an external factor in doing an act and none of them can be eliminated, if we have authority over internal factor and win over the external factor we would do the act without fear it is like there is a winner personality inside us which would appear and gain the victory but sometimes this personality is absence in this case fear will take over.
There must be strength inside without full authority over it this is how fear appears; if we want to survey fear we will face coparcener.
Coparcener definition: mankind has option and with this privilege he may choose not to obey righteous command, some of his liberty will be gone to sensuality.
For example a company has three bosses; shares are 30%, 30%, and 40% is mine, when i want to decide on something one of them must have the same vote as me otherwise my decision won’t accomplish in this case fear appears.
Fear is one of the results of coparcener, for example someone is capable of jumping 2 meters when he reaches a barrier with 1 meter height he has no fear but imagine if this person couldn’t jump 2 meters always and sometimes he jumps below 1 meter he will face the fear for the co-ownership of the strength inside him.
Our main mission is to take back our strengths; fear could block our development, this sense is so painful and sometimes the person won’t even do something that he does like because he doesn’t want to be afraid anymore, in addiction many of our strengths will be gone, when the narcotics consumer is in hangover condition he won’t have the authority over his body and his strengths anymore.
In order to quit fear we must get back the shares that we have lost before and this is a battle indeed. If there is fear inside in order to erase this fear there are two options , let go of that matter this option won’t erase fear because if we face that matter again fear will be revealed again, mankind must know that his improvement is in facing these fears and taking back the strengths that God had put in him.
Fear never exists alone, because fear is a deterrent power and makes us unbalanced. There is another deterrent power working beside fear which is anger and hatred. For having fear to face a matter there is a hatred or anger to face this matter as well.
Fear creates deprivation, for having fear to participate in something, there is deprivation and this deprivation creates rage, fear and rage are two sides on one coin and they have same nature.
