At the Core of Mind’s Fear – Trusting Life

Posted on by Sen.

At the core of almost every psychological fear in the mind is a deep-seated mistrust towards life. I continue to use the word “mind” to represent the thinking aspects in our human self as well as our non-physical self (the soul). If you don’t believe, or are skeptical, about your identity as a soul, or […]

    Great to see you posting again Sen. This blog has been a vital resource for the unfolding of my awakening.

    Just curious, did you write this in regards to all the fear and uncertainty that is taking place in the collective consciousness due to the plandemic?

    Hi Sen, I really like your article but it leaves me with one question. Is our life experience a ‘mechanical’ existence that simply moves through the neverending cycles of balance and harmony without and any particular purpose other than fulfilling life’s own nature in an impersonal mechanical way. Or is our life experience predetermined and tailor-made out of love by an intelligence that is more personal. In other words, does God (or life) personally and thoughtfully create our life experience in that it has already been decided before we were born how our life will unfold out of love and care, or are we simply at the mercy of which ever way life feels it needs to fulfill its own nature to restore balance in that particular moment.

    Hello Sen,
    I “discovered” your blog about a month ago and since then have read several articles. Unlike a lot of other articles/sites, I understand the way you explain awareness and mind. I agree with your approach to the inter-relationship between life, mind and awareness. Thank you for all the helpful blog posts.

    I agree nothing is static. What we perceive as “good” and “bad” situations are just like different sceneries you pass by while going on a long drive. Life does not stop, so no one scene will stay with you for ever. Our mind needs to trust this fact – things will change. I also agree that we need to train the mind to trust life and not worry. Do not pull tomorrows problems over to today and stress about it. However, this does not mean you do not plan for anything or do nothing. There are things we do need to worry about and plan ahead. I am a very healthy person, but I have purchased health insurance just so that if I get sick, I am able to get the care I need. I work hard so I earn enough to invest in my retirement plan… so I can live comfortably when I retire. I spend wisely today so I am not broke tomorrow. Each of these examples require my mind to worry a bit to identify the potential problems in future and take actions today. I hope you are not suggesting just trust life and I do not need to worry about these potential problems that may or may not happen in the future and hence do not need to make the choices mentioned above. When you say, ” just observe the movement, just see how the answers come through just at the right moment, just see how the solution arises out of nowhere, how whatever that’s needed finds a way to manifest, how timing plays out, how things are not as bad when you are living it compared to what they seem from outside, how the mind is more the reason for the resistance/fear than the event itself.”, I do not believe you are saying I don’t need to buy health insurance or have a retirement plan or spend money as if there is no tomorrow.

    So obviously our mind does have a role to play in life. The question is – how do we know when the mind is unnecessarily worrying versus worrying for a legitimate reason. How do I know that a specific thought/worry in my mind is something I should or should not indulge in and act upon? Knowing the answer to this is key to letting go.

    Good to see you resume posting. Could you please elaborate on living in the present? Does it mean “present moment/second” or present “incident”?

    Sen, I’m so thrilled to see you back and posting new articles in 2021. How are you doing in lockdown? I’ve been following your posts since 2015 after you stopped posting in 2014 (sadly). I read them and re-read them when I was in trouble. I cannot express how grateful I am to you for bringing enlightenment into my life. From the beginning, your posts resonated with me deeply, and I continued to trust the wisdom in these posts when I was in personal difficulty.

    I’m also happy to report my personal results so far, credited to your posts. No, I did not become the “forever calm and peaceful, never having an issue with anyone” stereotype of enlightenment guru. Instead, I simply become more authentic (a life commitment for me) and more daring in expressing my feelings, whether at work or in private. I also become more connected with the world, rather than more reclusive. When I have challenges at work or personally, I’ve learned to trust life, build relationship with other people and benefit from people who are very willing to help me. This dissolves my ego to a large extent – I know that even one day I become very successful, it’s not a personal glory. All my success is ultimately credited to the people who help me along the way (including you of course, though we never met). Success does not feel personal anymore – it’s simply a natural result of me working with the world. I also feel the immense “abundance” you’ve mentioned in other posts. However, abundance does not flow to greedy people. Abundance flows to humble people.

    Humility is another valuable trait I naturally build up while reading your posts. This is probably one of the most difficult human traits to develop, as it rubs against our ego and feels counter-intuitive sometimes. However, I think it’s also one of the greatest forces to set us free from the shackle of mindset. We often don’t realise our limitations, blind spots, what we don’t know that we don’t know. Even communication in words is not enough for us to truly learn, as the mind has a tendency to argue with the words. However, sometimes all we need is to listen, to observe, and to shut up. This doesn’t mean we never defend ourselves or become confrontational at anytime in life. However, it will stop feeling like a struggle against reality. When the need to defend arises, it feels spontaneous and without fear. It feels like “communication” rather than “personal drama”.

    I’ve truly benefited a lot from your posts. Thanks again! Since you stopped writting a long time ago, over the years I do wonder what you’ve been doing and whether you still personally believe in what you wrote. However, I still believe in them and practise them every day. I’m also really happy today to see that you are still committed. If you do have time, please continue to write. I will always remain your very loyal reader, of your past posts and new posts.
