Fear can serve a life affirmative purpose, and if it took only its natural shape, that is the only purpose it would ever have. The evils that feed off of fear in our minds have their origin in the frontal lobes, in the supposed center of reason.

One who fears nothing, loves nothing. What you can do is come to watch fear very closely. Live with it and not as it.
