When you feel fear, we ask you to consider the word prefer. In some way you have preferred this state of contraction and reliance on false self. In fact, there is a layer of fear to which you willingly attached that keeps you in the perception that you are this false self. The false self is no more than a conglomeration of egoic thought, of false thought. When you allow the false thought to fall away, the false self cannot hold together, cannot continue to run things.
