"One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end." ~ Krishnamurti
Yes, that is one reason to be afraid. ‘Fear of the unknown’ is not possible. If it is truly unknown, what is there to be afraid of? No, I am afraid of what I have made up as future; the future I have made up is a projection of the past, so all I am doing is reliving the past. On the other hand, it could be said that the Unknown is another word for God, and I know that God=Love brings about the end of my very existence as a self-invented identity and that is a scary thought. Time for a leap of faith or ... stay bunkered down fending off ghosts, demons and loved ones?
