What is fear?

 
 
Definition of Fear out of the Cambridge Dictionary:
“a strong emotion caused by great worry about something dangerous, painful, or unknown that is happening or might happen.”
 
Fear – a strong emotion
Why would we attempt to suppress a strong emotion?
What if this emotion brings us into the state of alertness
that is needed to react appropriately to the given situation?
 
What if fear is the energy that ignites in us the desire to
understand this “dangerous, painful or unknown” better?
 
What if the feeling of fear is actually empowering us to gather
knowledge about how to respond to circumstances that are
“happening or might be happening”?
 
What if we could share this knowledge then and assist others in 
the process to come to greater understanding how we perceive
the world and the “dangerous, painful and unknown” in it?
 
 
 
“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing 
or any other resistance, is understanding fear;
that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. 
We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.”
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
