According to Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now, fear is always a projection of something that might happen, not something that is happening now. When we let our mind wander into the future, we create an anxiety gap between what is real and what we are projecting to be real. The future is not real. Only the present is real.
Fear is a psychological condition that is separate and separates us from who we really are. It comes in many forms such as nervousness, unease, worry, dread, anxiety and more. If we allow it, fear can grip us so tight that we lose touch with our inner and true self. Fear separates us from our true power and our inner source.
Fear manifests in our minds through our ego self. When we identify with our lower mind, the ego runs our life. When we let fear take over, we yield our personal power to others. When we identify with our heart, we can become the creator of our lives. There is no place for fear in the heart. When it comes down to it, fear is not real.
