The Antidote to Fear

What is fear? Is it a presence, or is it an absence?

MC and host: [Sara Powell]
What is the antidote to fear, especially the fear of making mistakes and being judged for it?

Prem Rawat:
Uncertainty creates fear; fear creates anger. Anger creates harm—harm to yourself, to others; it could be anything; harm is harm. Harm creates uncertainty; uncertainty creates fear; fear creates anger; anger creates harm.... “Arrrr-rrrraaaagh!” And off it goes!

So, you don’t want fear. What should you do? What is fear? Is it a presence, or is it an absence?

[Individual: Absence.]

Thank you! You see—and you guys learned too quickly.

MC:
There was certainty there, wasn’t there?

Prem Rawat:
Yes, there was certainty there. And the day you start living your life with certainty, then the ambiguities go away. And even if the ambiguities come, you have a weapon to say, "No, this is uncertain. I want to be certain. I want this life to be real."

It’s not that you will remove every single obstacle—because the obstacles will have a tendency to plunk in your way. But whenever you come across that obstacle, you have the power to be able to remove it. That’s what’s so beautiful! That’s life! It has the power to remove those obstacles; you have the power. And you’ve always had that power.

But again, you’re a believer, because believing is so much easier than knowing. It abdicates—we love to abdicate responsibility. So, “You show me.” And why? Why aren’t you doing it? Are you incapable of doing it? No, you’re not! You’re a human. And as a human, you have that power to be able to move the mountains.

And so, how to get rid of fear? Because it is an absence, bring the light of knowledge—not darkness of fear. Because that uncertainty will be removed by certainty. And there is nothing more certain than the knowledge. And there is nothing more certain than the Knowledge of the self.
