Sadhguru talks about how you are experiencing fear because you’re not living with life; you’re living in your mind.
Fear exists simply because you are not living with life, you are living in your mind. Your fear is always about what’s going to happen next. That means your fear is always about that which does not exist. If your fear is about the nonexistent your fear is 100 percent imaginary. If you are suffering the non-existential, we call that insanity. If you are afraid or if you are suffering anything which does not exist, it amounts to insanity. Doesn’t it? People are always suffering either what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow. So, your suffering is always about that which does not exist simply because you’re not rooted in reality, you’re always rooted in your mind. Mind is one part memory and another part imagination—yet, both of them are in one way imagination because both of them don’t exist right now. You are lost in your imagination, that’s the basis of your fear. If you are rooted in reality, there would be no fear.
