The world runs people with fear…

The world pretty much runs people with fear because their personal lives are also predominantly run by fear. But once we have learned a way to avoid getting cornered by fear, we begin to transcend the world as well as transcend being a victim because the world can threaten us only by fear. If they cut off our bank account, conduct an audit, run away from us, leave us, or fire us, the gun at our head is always the same gun-the gun of fear. There can be the fear of losing a part of the body-there is no end to the number of fears, but there is an end to fearfulness and of being a victim of fear.
