Fear

Fear is not accepting the present situation or the reluctance (resistance) of letting a situation go, positive or negative.  It is a very subtle phenomenon in the mind that often derails our best intentions of doing something positive.  Having a clear understanding of yourself through self-knowledge supports you from being totally incapacitated by fearful thoughts.  A distinction must be seen between a fearful thought and a fearful situation.  The skill is to distinguish between a life-challenging moment and a life-threatening situation.  Clarity of mind and settled emotions in self-knowledge is very supportive for commanding fear and this is only realised through meditation.
