: Aïa ~ The Origin of Fear & Free Will.
Fear originates from attachment, really; be it a devotion to a belief, for instance, or a fondness to a memory; a mere illusion from the past molding oneself's present.
Whenever oneself holds onto an idea, or opinion, for too long, whether that idea, or opinion, is coming from outside; she, or he, becomes what she, or he, may be exposed to, over time.
Are you holding onto something? Are you a byproduct of your self-cultivating beliefs? Trapped into dogmas? In what preconceived conditions, both mental and physical, did you grew up in?
Are you dependent on someone, or something?
Bounded to your Self?
As in Buddhism, I believe that attachment is the root of suffering.
Fear arouses from the fact that oneself tend to constantly find ways to protect itself, instinctively, from the here and the now, as it can't resist much time into the chaos of the present moment.
Oneself, therefore, constantly desires "landmarks" to hold onto (attachments) and any other ideas - notions - that bring short-term reassurance and purpose to one's existence.
Though I do think that suffering is essential to oneself's personal development. Therefore, I do not reject the importance of facing its fear(s), as an/ obstacle(s). Next time you confront the abyss; do not escape. Embrace the void and wander through it. Walk through that emptiness and allow yourself to be more; free from any preconceived limitations.
