Q: Is it possible to live a life completely free of doubt and fear forever, and if so, what does one need to do or not do?
M: Fear and anxiety come only from darkness, from ignorance, from fear of the unknown.
Once we get to know the stable side of our Nature, the real side of our life, our fear and anxiety will disappear. We only fear because we think that after this life, we will have nothing. We only fear because we know only the ephemeral existence of this world. If we know that life is eternal, if we know that we are the greatest beings in the universe, we will have no fear at all. So I invite you to get to know your Self through the means of initiation (into the Quan-Yin Method).
~ The Supreme Master Ching Hai
We should not fear anything in this world; we need only fear that our minds are not stable and our wisdom is not developed enough, and therefore, we do not understand the true meaning behind those things.
Your faith must be stronger than your fear; that is the lesson. The Master is always stronger than the negative power, so if you are with the Master, you don't fear.
"Fearlessness" means ignoring the extent of our fear, our fearful minds, and cowardly areas, and just doing whatever we need to do.
