How to overcome fear?

Kavita Chhibber

Q: Sadhguru, how can one overcome fear? - Rajshri, Chennai

Fear is always about what will happen in the next moment. Its never about the present. When the future is not yet manifested, and not an existed reality why be afraid? You are actually suffering for that which does not exist-and so you cannot overcome that which does not exist.

Now this is one of the dumbest answers i have ever come across..All the religious books say simply to overcome fear, surrender to god and his will, stop expecting, control wants. Just try and do the good things and dont hurt others. Leave the rest to god. The general fear is to loose something, but on a larger thought one comes empty handed and goes empty handed...

That reminds me of story when the Sikander (Alexander the great) was dying his last wish was to see his mother. However he was told that he is sick and would not live the journey.. He laughed, and said, when my final procession is taken, keep my hands in open and facing upwards and open..that would show to world that even alexander who conquered the world, died empty handed....
