Life without fear! Can you imagine how boring the life would be without fear? How dull life could be without fear? If there were no fear, could you enjoy every moment of your life. No fear, no adventure. Adventures are all about overcoming or enjoying this wonderful feeling.
Have you ever looked at those who get rid of this feeling? Look at them closely. I have seen people who do not fear because they are so lonely. People get rid of fear because they are tired. They lose fear because they have nothing to lose.
I read a story (years ago) wherea boy would always pray to God to take his life. When God did not hear his voice he tried himself and reached where God was. God asked him why he did that and it was not the time for him to die. He replied that he had nothing to live for. God assured him that he will get a cause to live for and he should go back to life.
The boy got everything and started enjoying his life. Time came when he had to die and the God asked him to give his soul. Theboy was afraid. The one who would never fear for losing life was now begging to give him a few more days.
This was a story for example. There are many causes of fear and people have different fears. Some fear from crowd, some from height; some from lightning, some from fight and many people fear from the fear of unknown. There may be a long article on fear itself as it is such a great gift of God. In short, fear makes the life livable. Don’t run away from it. Do not get rid of fear but accept this feeling.
Do you get afraid? Everyone does. Not many can get rid of fear. Those who do actually face the fear but they do not get rid of it. Fear is a gift of God to living beings. Fear helps to get away from odd situations. Fear is the real motivator in challenging situations. Next time you get afraid do not curse yourself or God instead thank God that you have the feeling of fear.
