Is Fear Just a Lack of Understanding?

Consider that fear only exists when we lack knowledge and understanding.  It is your ego’s way of keeping you a prisoner of your past and therefore, your future.  It’s that little voice that wants desperately to maintain the status quo no matter how painful.  It doesn’t want you to be in the present moment because if you are, you would realize that if there is nothing to fear right now, then there’s nothing to fear… and you’d get on with your life. Pretty insidious little trickster, your ego. When you see yourself being afraid of something, recognize that it is most likely an irrational fear that your mind has created for you.
