When Fear dies Truth arises

Thomas Ross:
I’ve been thinking a lot about fear.

Someone told me that when you open yourself to the truth, the truth of who you are,
there can be no fear. I think of the Tao passage –  when you hold nothing back from life,
you become ready for death. No fear.

Me:
As I said, IDEA – thinking – is fear. Of course we can think or meditate about fear,
but in most cases, our pondering enhances fear.

It´s a very insidious process.

What is “Truth”? I am not merely playing with words here:
What do we really know about truth?

Truth for most of us is a “negative” or “positive” projection, isn´t it so…?

“Holding nothing back from life” is surrender. Surrender to the fact that
we don´t know. Eventually it´s an act of “faith” – it is the immediate grasping
of the fact that thinking can neither “seize” nor convey the truth.

Idea must die – that´s what is meant with “you become ready for death”.
When Idea dies, Projection dies, and Fear along with it; and then, and only then,
Truth can arise.

Now, for most of us, this is the hardest thing to fathom as our identity is basically
an Idea,

Letting go of our Ideas – which are eventually only misconceptions – it feels like dying.
What do we have left then…?

Many people prefer to die physically, than confronting this giving up on ideas – that
regarding the immense difficulty of facing “the ultimate predicament” – letting go
of “identity”.

So…Only when Idea dies, Fear withers along with it, and Truth naturally emerges.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
