How Can We Overcome Fear?
Why do we feel fear and what is its basis? In this short clip taken from "One: The Movie" - a documentary about the meaning of life, Sadhguru talks about fear, explaining its root cause and telling us how we can become free from it.
People are always suffering either what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow. So your suffering is always about that which does not exist, simply because you’re not rooted in reality, you’re always rooted in your mind. Mind is – one part of it is memory, another part of it is imagination. Both of them are in one way imagination, because both of them don’t exist right now. You’re lost in your imagination, that’s the basis of your fear. If you were rooted in reality, there would be no fear.
