In a world that seems demanding at times, fear may become an automatic and a habitual response. There are two types of fears, rational and irrational. In addition to that we have conscious and unconscious fears. While a rational fear is a real threat that would scare most people, an irrational one is usually a perceived threat that has no immediate or real danger and is magnified in one's mind. The person's response to the irrational fear is usually an overreaction and an exaggeration; this could be even worse if the irrational fear is unconscious.
When it comes to emotions, there are two fundamental ones: fear and love. Many of the other emotions seem to be based on these two. While fear is an obstruction to growth, a sense of love and connection bring about growth. The less the feeling of fear, the more unconditional love there will be. Unconditional love is a sense of having respect and empathy for everyone and everything in nature, regardless of how we are conditioned. It is a form of real love that is caring about the happiness of another without any thought for what we might get for ourselves. It is when we care about someone's happiness, unconditionally. It is not unconditional when someone likes us doing what they want or for having what they like to have. Under those conditions it is a limited type of love, or that we are paying for love. Experiencing a real sense of love has the power to heal, connect people together and create relationships that are beyond our present capacity to imagine. It also has the ability to make the world a more peaceful place.
