Fear is our first obstacle. It comes from believing that the ego is real, and the supreme consciousness unreal.
Ego is afraid because it does not know truth.
It is okay to be afraid, the important thing is not to mind the fear. Do not act based on fear. Do not listen to the whispers of fear and do not follow its commands. See the fear, as you see everything else.
Fear is in the mind, and behind the fear is ignorance. See the fear. Observe it. It will also unfold and vanish like the shadows of night when the sun rises.
