Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Faith and Fear
"Fear is not going to help us in any way.
Fear makes the mind lose all its strength.
Remember, even to have fear, you must have
faith in your fear. You have faith in your
fear, and that's why you are afraid. But you
should know that fear is not going to bring
you any benefit. Faith and fear don't go
together. Either you have faith, or you have
fear. You know that you are alive now. Why
don't you enjoy the now, rather than worry
about the future? Enjoy both getting and
losing. So, if you know the ultimate truth,
there's no reason to fear. Don't let that
fear come near you at any time. Learn to live
in the golden present.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
