So The Question Is

Control implies effort and effort distorts direct perception.

The key is not to control fear, but to understand the nature and structure of fear. Fear is a product of thought. Fear does not even come into being until after a frightening episode is over and thought says – “that was scary!” During the incident itself, intelligence acts; fear only comes about when thought interferes. So the question is, can we understand our fears and eradicate them?

Violence is Unintelligent

Peace is the way for progress whether of an individual or of a nation or world, peace is the future, and all violence, in whatever degree or form, is unintelligent behaviour. It is only intelligence when violence is used as a means of self-defence with no option left. Here, I am not referring to any philosophical or abstract meaning of the word ‘intelligence’. I am using intelligence in the fullest sense of that word which relates with wisdom. To me, intelligence is not limited to one’s cognitive capacities.
Intelligence to me is the complete expression of the human being in line with wisdom, which includes the mind, body and heart. Obviously, I am not using heart as an organ here. I am referring to the symbolic qualities associated frequently with the heart – qualities like compassion, empathy and so on.
