I'm looking for a writing I made in which I talk about fear and its opposite: "hope"... because when I (actually) wrote about this I knew that that was not quite "right"; I mean, the opposite to fear is desire.
These are polarities of the same mind-made emotion. One has a negative aspect to it: fear; but, also, if you look closely, so does desire (have a negative quality). Both mind-made emotions create an uneasy feeling in the body. There is another type of fear that exists without thought. The instant before You have an accident: OH! ("Real") Fear comes up to propel You to automatic survival action! But the fear of the future ("future" that never, actually comes) is totally unnecessary! The same with desire. You desire to be loved... but do not realize that You ARE LOVED, YOU ARE LOVE, ALREADY!
