The emotion of fear ranges from a feeling of chronic unease or worry to anxiety about relationships to a full-blown panic attack. In the fear state, man loses his intelligence. He’s essentially feral.
Life is first and foremost discontinuous. From this derives our fear and anxiety.
Do I dream of the future? Plan and train for it? Then I’m fear-soaked. “Take no thought for tomorrow.” We’re not invited to compromise. Not a few thoughts. Not one thought. No thought.
No swearing. No spitting. Also: Don’t want anything. And don’t fear anything.
The only trouble is fear. The only freedom is freedom from worry.
