As I have experienced fear and contemplated fear, it has been helpful to read the writings of Sri Aurobindo.  Here are words by Sri Aurobindo that I read in a booklet called Fear: It’s Cause and Cure

” ….love is inconsistent with the admission of the motive of fear. Closeness of the human soul to the Divine is the object, and fear sets always a barrier and a distance; even awe and reverence for the divine Power are a sign of distance and division and they disappear in the intimacy of the union of love. Moreover, fear belongs to the lower self, and in approaching the higher Self must be put aside before we can enter into its presence.”

When I am full of fear, it helps to be close to nature.  As I gaze at the ocean, the mountains, the sky or beautiful flowers, I can feel the love within my heart.  And as I feel the love, the fear begins to dissipate.
