Fear versus peace

A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, a peaceful man.
- Jiddu Krishnamurti

The fear referred to here is not the natural fear which extends from caution about situations which are dangerous, but ongoing and pathological fear which people become accustomed to living with. This kind of fear is unhealthy as it affects the immune system and hobbles the brain.

Not being afraid of life is a state of mind which has the consequence of bringing peace and tranquility.
