Fear of Darkness is Fear of the Unknown


Fear of darkness is fear of the unknown. Fear of Light is fear of the known. Fear of the unknown is stupidity. Fear of the known is absurdity. The Vedas hark upon our ego to come out of the shadows and align with its highest truth by remembering its true, invincible Brahman nature1:

As Heaven and Earth are not afraid, and never suffer loss or harm;

Even so, self, fear not thou.

As Day and Night are not afraid, nor ever suffer loss or harm;

Even so, self, fear not thou.

As Sun and Moon are not afraid, nor ever suffer loss or harm;

Even so, self, fear not thou.

As Spiritual Force and Mundane Power fear not, nor ever suffer loss or harm;

Even so, self, fear not thou.

As Truth and Perfect Frankness fear not, and never suffer loss or harm;

Even so, self, fear not thou.

As Past and Future fear not, and never suffer loss or harm;

Even so, self, fear not thou.

Yes, I am fearless. Hence, I am now at peace with myself and with all my relationships, from the past and in the present. I now see the good characters who gave me joy in relationships and the so-called evil characters who, in the name of relationships, only sucked me deeper into self-ignorance and perpetuated my unconsciousness (that induced yet more suffering), all worked equally sincerely in their scripts to awaken me irrevocably.
