The experience of fear is varied: it goes from mild discomfort to deep anxiety, from a simple tingling to painful stomach cramps, from unconsciousness to automatic reactions. But mostly, we are unaware of our fears. Indeed, if we are to survive, we must hide them, even from ourselves. It is dangerous to show what appears to be a sign of weakness if we are to survive. We hide our fears with jokes, opinions, cynicism or work, partying, drinking, sarcasm or shyness, looks, makeup, muscles or money, sickness, depression, aggressiveness or anger, success, being special and unique… Fear gives rise to our ego. We all know it. The events of our world tell it clearly. What makes a difference is to go one step further. What gives rise to fear? When does it all start?
