“There is no illusion greater than FEAR” Lao Tzu

Believe me,in this world none is fearless. Cambridge dictionary defines FEAR as “An unpleasant emotion or thought that you have when you are frightened or worried by something dangerous,painful or bad that is happening or might happen ” ” Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil ” Aristotle ‘Fear itself is a creation of your mind.It does not exist independently.Since it is a fabrication,you don’t have to fight it.Just understand it.Understanding is the key to freedom’.   The Ancient sage Can you say fear is an abnormal state ? Fear is not abnormal.It is a critical reaction to perceived physical and emotional danger one may likely to face. But the problem comes when the inner thoughts alert you and over rides your intellect,you become panicky. And instead of being proactive, you get stuck.We can’t avoid fear,but we can learn to be confident. The paradox is, fear is both enemy and friend of success. We fear because mind allows you to fear.We always tend to fear things because our imaginations cross the limits. “Fear is only as deep as the mind allows” Japanese Proverb Can you tackle fear ? Yes,you can face it, since fear is creation of your mind, it has to be tackled both on 1.Psychological (confront the fear ) and 2.Behavioral angle (taking bold steps). We should not allow fear to paralyze us.Fear comes to you because you are not living in the present.You are constantly thinking […]

Does your mind wander during prayers ?

  Are you able to concentrate on God and Just God alone and pray without any thoughts interfering the prayers ? 1.Are you the one doing just lip movements while praying,but wander in a different world full of one thought jumping over to the next? 2.This split second intrusion of your thoughts (whether negative or positive) during prayers really haunting you ? Is this making you guilty ? If it is so, believe me …..you are not alone. Is it because our brains have multiple components,each doing different jobs in quick succession, thus making us, difficult to concentrate ? Are these intrusive thoughts, a basic human nature ?

Is it possible to override these thoughts ? How to solve this problem ?

I don’t have an answer.Do you have one ? Please guide me. Some say Meditation helps “The goal of meditation is not to control your thoughts,it is to stop letting them control you” theageofenlightement Again I am not sure of Meditation and how it can help control […]
