Hmmm! I think it's what I feel when I'm stuck at one place &I can't move forward because i don't know what to expect.So i think for me it's the lack of expectation& not knowing the results.

The solution is writing everything i fear& whether there r advantages or disatvantages,if the advantages are more I go with it& later on my feelings change from fear to certainity.

Óscar, i think writing about it is a good idea. By that way we can "watch" our problem on the paper. Maybe when you can see it you can take a decision :)

The Root of All Fear


"The craving to become causes fears; to be, to achieve, and so to depend engenders fear. The state of the nonfear is not negation, it is not the opposite of fear nor is it courage. In understanding the cause of fear, there is its cessation, not the becoming courageous, for in all becoming there is the seed of fear. Dependence on things, on people, or on ideas breeds fear; dependence arises from ignorance, from the lack of self-knowledge, from inward poverty; fear causes uncertainty of mind-heart, preventing communication and understanding. Through self-awareness we begin to discover and so comprehend the cause of fear, not only the superficial but the deep casual and accumulative fears. Fear is both inborn and acquired; it is related to the past, and to free thought-feeling from it, the past must be comprehended through the present. The past is ever wanting to give birth to the present which becomes the identifying memory of the "me" and the "mine" the "I". The self is the root of all fear".

J.Krishnamurti.
