Sadhguru on Overcoming Fear and Insecurities

Thoughts and teachings of Sadhguru on overcoming fear and insecurities

You don’t have to leave your fears and insecurities because they don’t really exist. You keep creating them unconsciously. If you don’t create them, they don’t really exist. Why you create them and how to stop creating them, that’s the question.

The fundamental reason why fear has arisen in you is in this vast existence of which you don’t know the beginning or the end, you are just a little human being. Being the small entity that you are right now, naturally fear is there. It is overwhelming; there is fear and insecurity about what will happen to you.

As long as you are identified as physical body, as long as your experience of life is limited to your physical and mental faculties, fear and insecurity are inevitable. Only when a person begins to experience himself beyond the limitations of his physical body and mind, then this person can become free from insecurity and fear.

Experiencing yourself beyond the physical is what we are referring to as spiritual. Once this spiritual dimension is alive, once you start experiencing yourself beyond the limitation of the physical and the mental, only then there is no such thing as fear.

Fear is just the creation of an overactive and out of control mind.
