THE MORE WE CHANGE, THE MORE FEAR WILL BE COMING. ~OSHO~
WHENEVER YOU FEEL FRIGHTENED, just relax. Accept the fact that fear is there, but don't do anything about it. Neglect it, don't pay any attention to it.
Watch the body, there should not be any tension in it. IF TENSION DOESN'T EXIST IN THE BODY, THE FEAR DISAPPEARS AUTOMATICALLY. Fear makes a certain tense state in the body, to get rooted in it. If the body is relaxed, fear is bound to disappear. A RELAXED PERSON CANNOT BE SCARED. You cannot frighten a relaxed person. Even if fear comes, it will come like a wave... it will not get roots.
And fear coming and going like waves and you remaining untouched by it, is beautiful. WHEN IT GETS ROOTED IN YOU AND STARTS GROWING IN YOU, then it becomes a growth, a cancerous growth. Then it cripples your inner organism.
So whenever you feel frightened, the one thing to look at is that the body should not be tense. Lie down on the floor and relax... RELAXATION IS THE ANTIDOTE FOR FEAR... And it will come and go, you simply watch.
That watching should NOT be of interest... indifferent, ONE JUST ACCEPTS THAT IT'S OKAY. The day is hot... what can you do? The body is perspiring.. . one has to pass through it. The evening is coming close, and a cool breeze will be blowing... SO JUST WATCH IT AND BE RELAXED.
Be Realistic; Plan for a Miracle
