Fear is the mind killer, there is nothing to fear but fear itself.
There is no fear in love; perfect love drives out all fear. So then love has not been made perfect in anyone who is afraid, because fear has to do with punishment.
Do not confuse fear with respect. You should respect your father and your boss because they are your superiors, you should not be in fear of them. Act on the requests of your parents out of love not trepidation.
I acknowledge great heights and respect their power, If I stand too close a gust of wind may cause me to lose my balance and send me over the edge. But I do not fear falling as much as I love the view.
