Fear And Wisdom

Recommended Posts

Is not fear just attachment to a wrongly perceived self - a self, which is frightened of what somebody will think of them or what will happen to them? The realization that there is no death or birth such as a cloud not dying when it rains but still able to be seen in the rain - transformed not dead or born - is in a sense renouncing fear and with it attachment to a false idea of an inherent self - it is in a sense transcending a view of the world and knowing directly or attaining wisdom.
