Question: How can I overcome my fear of the loss or change of things I am attached to?

SRI CHINMOY: When things change, fear does come. Only if we love God in His own Way can we remove this fear. We have to say, “God, You know what is best for me, what is best for the members of my family, what is best for everybody.” If you can increase your love for God, then you will see that God is doing everything and will do everything for your good.

The problem is that fear remains with us because we always think that everything has to be done in our own way. But if we can become one with God’s Way, there is no fear at all because we see God inside every change in our lives. We know He is doing everything for us, for our family, for everybody. When God’s Way becomes our way, then fear leaves us and we become infinitely happier than we were when we wanted to have joy in our own way.

Do not think of fear, but think of your own faith in God, your own love for God. If we leave everything up to God, then God gives us what is necessary in order for us to make progress. As soon as we separate our individual will from God’s universal Will, fear comes because we become responsible for our own desires. We wonder, “Will my desire be fulfilled? How can it be fulfilled?”

You have to place fear itself at God’s Feet and not try to deal with it with your mind. Right now, you say, “Oh, I am afraid! I have to do this, I have to do that.” But when you do this or that, you see that fear is still there. You are changing your process to conquer fear, but it does not work. When fear has come into you, very gladly and very powerfully place it at the Feet of God. Then God will take away your fear and replace it with His Light to work in and through your life.
