What men fear the worst in life? The worst fear is normally born out of things that are unknown. Unknown things need not be really unknown, but are invisible to man.
The invisible self of man, especially his thoughts and feelings are the first and the foremost enemies of man. The invisible self of man only is the source of his happiness and sorrow. The invisible feelings or thoughts only pollute the reality as subjective or partial.
The invisible self in most corporate employees appear as ‘perception’ and the employees easily get confused with perception and think it to be real and live a life of unreal.
In real life, the fear of future is yet another invisible cause that tosses the life of everyone. Future is always ‘invisible’ and only such fear of invisible future alone drives man to be careful, cautious, mad, sad & depressed, meticulous & disciplined, cultured & educated, pious & virtuous, angry and arrogant etc.
Imagine, if the future were visible to human being, only anarchy and lawlessness will rule the life of mankind.
Another important invisible aspect that daunts mankind is the fear of unknown. Always man is afraid of something which is unknown to him. The unknown is always invisible to man.
In biology of human life also, the invisible creatures called microbes only cause problems in the form of debilitating and or life threatening diseases and disorders. From the pre-historic times till date, human life is threatened by these invisible microbes.
Why many things in the world remain invisible to man? Are they really invisible or man has not developed capability to see & understand these invisible things and hence they remain invisible to him?
The truth is that nothing is invisible as long as the visible self of man tries to see or understand it. The invisible self of man, the feelings and thoughts can be controlled and managed by him. But unfortunately man fall slave to his external self and believe and tries to convince his ‘self’ that only the external self (world) is the real cause for his feelings or thoughts.
The invisible future is only the extension or continuation of the visible present. But unfortunately, man always thinks that his/her future is independent and separate from the present. If man learns to see the visible present and learn his lessons, the future will never be invisible to him or her.
It is not the invisible fear of unknown affect the man; only the ignorance of man is alone constantly supply the fear of unknown.
Nothing in real life is invisible as long as one frees the ‘self’ from ignorance. Fear not the invisible as the invisible is only the shadow of the visible.
