If you examine all your fears, all the things you’re afraid of, you’ll see you are not afraid of something. You’re afraid of the thought of that thing. That’s how thoughts create fear. And fear is connected to the desire to not be afraid. Conflict between fear and desire creates suffering. We suffer from what we think we should have, but cannot have. And we suffer from things not being the way we want them to be. So suffering comes from fighting that which is. But understanding is acceptance of what is.
