FEAR AND REASON
FEAR AND REASON, We have all heard the apparently separating comments that trepidation is ordinary and irregular, and that typical apprehension is to be viewed as a companion, while unusual trepidation ought to be annihilated as an adversary.
The truth of the matter is that no supposed ordinary apprehension can be named which has not been plainly missing in a few individuals who have had each reason therefor. On the off chance that you will keep running over mankind's history in your brain, or look about in the present life, you will discover here and there persons who, in circumstances or before situations which should, as any dreadful soul will demand, to motivate the feeling at any least normal self-securing fear, are all things considered entirely without the feelings. They have each feeling and thought requested with the exception of fear. The thought of self-protection is as emphatically present as with the most wretchedly shy or terrified, however fear they don't have the foggiest idea. This valiant familiarity with apprehension proposing conditions might be because of a few reasons. It might come about because of protected make-up, or from since a long time ago kept preparing or habituation, or from religious euphoria, or from a consummately quiet feeling of profound self-hood which is unhurt-able, or from the activity of exceptionally lifted up reason. Whatever the clarification, the truth remains: the very causes which energize dread in the greater part of us, only offer, with such individuals, if by any stretch of the imagination. to the impulse of self-safeguarding and to reason, the thought-component about the spirit which makes for individual peace and wholeness.
Exile all apprehension, It is on such considerations that I have come to hold that all genuine feelings of fear ought to and might be banished from our life, and that what we call "ordinary fear" ought to be substituted in our language by "intuition" or by "reason," the component of fear being dropped out and out.
"Everybody can affirm that the psychical state called apprehension comprises of mental representations of certain excruciating results". The mental representations might be extremely black out, yet the thought of hurt to self is most likely present. In the event that, it can be significantly trusted that the genuine self can't be harmed; if the reason can be brought to consider distinctively and vividly, all calming contemplation; if the self can be held intentionally in the certification that the White Life encompasses the genuine self, and is definitely inside of that self, and will endure "no abhorrence to come near," while every one of the senses of self protection might be splendidly dynamic, apprehension itself must be evacuated "similarly as the east is from the west."
These are the routes, in which any event for apprehension might be isolated, panic. But let us say that the warning should be understood as given to reason, that fear need not appear at all, and that the panic is perfectly useless pain. With these discriminations in mind, we may now go on to a preliminary study of fear. panic. But let us say that the warning should be understood as given to reason, that fear need not appear at all, and that the panic is perfectly useless pain.

preparatory investigation of fear. Fear is (an) a motivation, (b) a propensity, (c) an infection, apprehension, as it exists in man, is a pretend of rational soundness, an creature of the creative mind, a condition of craziness. Besides, trepidation is, presently of the nerves, now of the brain, now of the ethical consciousness.
The division relies on the perspective. What is regularly called typical trepidation ought to offer spot to reason, utilizing the word to cover sense and thought. From the right perspective all apprehension is a shrewd as entertained.
Whatever its appearances, wherever its clear area, fear is a psychic state, obviously, responding upon the person in a few routes: as, in the nerves, in mental temperaments, in a solitary motivation, in a ceaseless propensity, in a completely lopsided condition. The response has dependably a decent goal, which means, for every situation, "Fare thee well! Threat!" You will see this is so on the off chance that you will search for a minute at three far reaching sorts of apprehension trepidation of self, apprehension for self, dread for others. Apprehension of self is by implication dread for self risk. Dread for others signifies fore sensed or fore pictured pain to self due to foreseen misfortune to others. I regularly ponder whether, when we fear for others, it is pain to self or hurt to them that is most unequivocally in our idea.
Apprehension, is normally viewed as the spirit's risk signal. However, the genuine sign is instinctual and insightful reason. Indeed, even intuition and reason, going about as notice, might perform their obligation unusually, or accept anomalous extents. And after that we have the sentiment of fear. The ordinary cautioning is instigated by real peril caught by psyche in a condition of parity and restraint. Ordinary personality is constantly able to do such cautioning. There are however two routes in which supposed ordinary trepidation, acting in the pretense of reason, might be destroyed: by the substitution of explanation behind apprehension, and by the assurance of the white life.
Give it a chance to be seen, now, that by typical apprehension arrives implied ordinary reason genuine trepidation being denied place and function altogether. At that point we might say that such activity of reason is a promoter to man. It is, with agony and exhaustion, the generosity of the way of things inside of us.
One individual said: "Tired? No such word in my home!" Now this can't be a sound and solid disposition. Exhaustion, at a specific phase of exertion, is a sign to stop work. At the point when one turns out to be so invested in labor as to lose cognizance of the sentiment exhaustion, he has issued a "rush call" on death. I don't deny that the spirit might develop a glorious feeling of lightness and power; rather do I encourage you to look for that excellent condition; yet I hold that when a conviction or a visualization declines to allow you to hear the notice of nerves and muscles, Nature will work calamity unavoidably. Give us a chance to remain for the bigger freedom which is happily allowed to exploit everything Nature might offer for genuine prosperity. There is a halfway freedom which tries to acknowledge itself by denying different substances as genuine; there is a higher freedom which truly acknowledges itself by using so as to yield such substances as genuine and or neglecting them as event might require in light of a legitimate concern for the self taking care of business. I hold this to be genuine knowledge: to exploit everything which clearly guarantees great to the self, without respect to either hypothesis, and openly to utilize all things, material or irrelevant, sensible or profound. I grasp your science or your strategy; however I ask to overlook your subjugation to reasoning or to consistency. So I say that to typical well being the tired sense is a rational command to recharge depleted nerves and muscles.
It is not freedom, it is not fortifying, to proclaim, "There is no agony!" Pain does exist, whatever you affirm, and your assertion that it doesn't, is confirmation that it does exist, for why (and how) pronounce the non-presence of that which really is non-existent? In any case, in the event that you say, "Actually I have torment, yet I am truly endeavoring to overlook it, and to develop thought-well being so that the reason for torment might be evacuated," that is normal and lovely. This is the praiseworthy state of mind of the Bible character who cried: "Master, I trust; offer thou mine unbelief." To attempt some assistance with swamping torment with a billow of mental mist that is to turn rebel against the great administration of Nature. By torment Nature educates the person that he is some place out of request. This notice is typical. The inclination gets to be irregular in the brain when creative energy twangs the nerves with repeated bothering, and Will, confused by the disunity and the psychic chaos, grovels and shudders with trepidation.
I don't say there is no such thing as trepidation. Trepidation exists. Be that as it may, it exists throughout your life by your authorization, not on account of it is needful as a notice against "evil."
Apprehension is impelled by unduly amplifying real risk, or by conjuring up imaginary threats through intemperate and misled psychical responses. This additionally might be taken as a sign of risk, however it is a dishonestly intentioned witness, for it is not required, is unfriendly to the individual since it debilitates poise and it retains life's strengths in pointless and damaging work when they should be occupied with making values.
