If you fear something it means you do not know ‘Who you are?’.
Fear is always due to unknown, unexperienced or imaginary but well set as truth.
Now neither you know ‘Who you are?’ nor you know about that something you fear.
So there are two unknown, you are the reason for both too.
If you meditate a little, search inside to know ‘Who am i?’ by removing all layers like name, education, colour etc you gathered (came to know from others about you!) since birth then you will be able to know your ‘Original face’, said Lalon Fakhir of Bangladesh now its followers called as Baul – wandering musician singing song to people about knowing their ‘original face’ and respect nature as dutis of every human being.
Once you know any one of two – Yourself or Fear then just by knowing or understanding fear will vanish. Knowing fear is difficult because you can go on making new fear.
Once you have known your’self’ then fear will vanish altogether forever.
This is why ‘you are giving power’ to both by not knowing yourself, the more you postpone your inside journey, the more power fear have over you.
A wise person will be patient as well as consistent enough to wait for the favourable season to come for long time without loosing enthusiasm.
In Zen they say ‘Sit silently doing nothing, when season comes, the grass grows by itself green.’
By practicing meditation in daily life fear can vanish one day automatically, because fear is due to ‘presence of two’ in life. Happiness and sadness, win or loose etc etc.
This quantum jump or transformation in your inner being is described by saints of India as ‘गहरे पानी पैठ’ going deep inside water where both the shores meet and become one!
This is measuring deep water by standing at the bank! Fear vanishes immediately, because you have known your’self’. Now every time you need not have to prepare yourself against new fear as you age.
Only wise can do it, wisdom is what he get.
Awareness meditation (Osho guiding about meditation on YouTube) is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. You may wish to know that the state of meditation is our natural state and “How meditation affects us?”.
There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
My experiences may be of your help in taking only one step in deciding to add value to life. Because everyone has to move forward alone, this is the nature of this journey.
In my life mindfulness or awareness meditation (My experiences shared through a post) helped miraculously. Along with meditation living a simple, authentic and totality in life is very helpful. It is helful even when we are serving people around us with great love and care without discrimination.
