Unreasoned Fear is a Master Intellectual Fraud Practised Upon the Evolving Human!

Today let me take up the second statement of the twenty eight philosophical truths that I discussed from my favorite book earlier. This is the statement:

Few persons live up to the faith which they really have. Unreasoned fear is a master intellectual fraud practiced upon the evolving mortal soul. 

In my opinion this statement is concerning the faith of people in God. 

Many people say they have faith in God. But is it real ? What is the degree of your faith? How much you trust in God? Is your faith going to shatter under difficult life situations?

Even when we know that God is there to protect and and provide us, there are occasions when we all get shaky and doubt about it. 

True, only very few persons live up to the faith they really have! For most of us it is difficult to trust God fully.

We are not able to live up to our faith due to our fears and anxieties.

If God is the creator and provider of the worlds, why should we have any doubt about that when things appear for a short while as not proceeding according to our wish?

Wise men have found out that such fears are uncalled for. 

There is no basis for our un-reasoned fears. Why should we lock ourselves and hide when the solar eclipse happen? Millions of people had done that out of great fear and millions perhaps are doing that even in the present times. 

Why do we get scared when that fraudulent astrologer predicted an imminent danger ? Is he above God ? Why do we change the spelling of our names to remove the fraudulently predicted evils ?

Imagine the kind of un-reasoned fears that you have !

It would be a good idea to list out all your fears and categorize them in two classes: reasonable and unreasonable!

Those unreasoned and illogical fears are to be removed. 

That is possible only when you have absolute faith in the goodness and supremacy of God!

  1. I find that a daily prayer that includes reminders to my mind of the futility of holding onto unreasoned fear helps me to dispose of the constant corrosion it causes for my mortal life. Thanks for sharing
