Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Don't Have Faith in Your 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. However, you should know
that fear is not going to bring you any benefit.
Anything can happen at any time. Right now,
though, you are alive, you are fine. Why don't
you enjoy the life that you are living now
rather than worrying? By giving into fear,
you are making yourself miserable. Faith and
fear don't go together. Either you have faith,
or you have fear. Why don't you enjoy the now
instead of worrying about the future? Learn to
live in the golden present.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
