    I do not fear death, therefore I have no fear.

    Because I have no fear I am at peace and can exert my best efforts in all I do.

    If you truly do not fear death, then you have no fear, and can do anything you put your mind to; you have the ability to master the eternal here and now.

    My response to most situations that scare others is an adrenaline spike, not counting fear regarding an emotional topic. But for situations involving immediate, direct stimuli, the adrenaline rush is a heady experience and makes me wish to do it (fighting, jumping from heights, speed) again. This is why I avoid fighting. I go to a zenic place when I use my body and am in tune with it, one where I don't have to think.

    Fear oftentimes makes me aware of something I should move toward and conquer, for I will be more secure in myself afterward regardless of the actual outcome.

    I have learned to fear pain. It has been an implacable foe.

    Sometimes when I think about how ridiculous the medical industry is...I think about how it wouldn't be an industry at all if we didn't fear physical pain or death! Fear of the unknown is pretty much what drives human behavior.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

    Have you considered fearing other things? Fear of not living your life in an acceptable (to you) manner?

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Hey lamp! I have considered this and am not at issue with the concept, because I have chosen the big picture of my path in life, and I am confident in my ability to fine tune things as I need to in real time as I move along on the space/time continuum. I am truly at peace. Thanks for asking though.

    I fear some things, I love the ocean but I also have a respectful fear of it, a healthy fear I think. Fear exists for a reason, it doesn't often control me but I definitely listen to it. I fear that I may somehow hurt others, I'm glad I have that fear.
