The No.1 Killer

In one of the article, we shared how fear causes your sufferings. In this issue, we will reveal to you the cause of fear.
Whilst fear is not real and we understand now that fear is actually a choice, what causes us to learn fear? How does an infant with no understanding of fear end up with fear becoming an innate nature when he or she grows up? The main cause is “Doubt”.
Yes, “Doubt” is the mother of all fears.
Doubt is a status between belief and disbelief which all humans are most capable of. This phenomenon happens because of the society that we live in. From the day that we were born, we became a product of the society. It is because of doubt that humans learned and embraced a lifelong attitude of fear which leads to unnecessary suffering and incessant problems that recurs. Unless and until we remove all doubts and fears, we will continue to fall into the abyss of the human sufferings.
Doubting is an act that is unnecessary.
Think about it, most of the time, you find yourself caught in a moment of belief and disbelief. Your close friend tells you that an investment opportunity offers a return of 5% per month; your first reaction to that is “disbelief”. Whilst your close friend continues to share information about the investment opportunity, you may be listening but your mind has already swung into a chain of thoughts that began with disbelief.
You trust your friend because he or she has been your close friend for many years nonetheless your mind starts to worry for your friend because you think that he or she could have been a victim of a scam. Your logic kicks in, based on your knowledge and experience, any investment with astronomical returns involves too much risk. You start to use your own logic to discredit the information shared by your friend. You ask your friend to share more information of the investment plan with you yet your mind seeks to find logical ways to negate every bit of information you receive. Unconscious to yourself, you have already become a victim of “doubt”.
In the quoted example, your friend could have invested in a scam or your friend could have invested in a sound profitable investment. The fact is you do not know which it is. You need to acknowledge to yourself the fact that you do not know about the investment he is talking about because you are not a part of that investment.
Do not doubt. Seek to learn on an open concept of what his investment is about. Ask questions that improve your learning and understanding of the opportunity that your friend speaks of. Learn how the investment makes the profit of 5% per month and with that new knowledge that you have obtained, you can then decide to experience it for yourself.
No one is asking you to be gullible. Just don’t carry the attitude of doubting. When you repeatedly carry out the act of doubting, you will unconsciously program your mind to shut off learning opportunities and deepen your sense of fear. In doing so, you will sink deeper into the abyss of suffering.
How do you remove doubt? You only need to firmly command yourself to remove the thoughts of doubt from you. Do that for every type of doubt that you are accustomed to. The following are some examples to get you started.

Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt

Word from swo
Take time to reflect upon yourself and find out how the attitude of doubting has caused you to doubt yourself, your own capability, your own decisions, your own speech and many more.
