Fear is an integral part of human life and it doesn't matter that we are no longer living on the savanna looking over our shoulders all the time for saber tooth tigers. It doesn't matter if we - as I do - have a more or less comforting spiritual world view and accompanying experiences (or beliefs that we have had certain experiences that confirms this view). It doesn't matter if we are generally endowed with a very strong psychic condition whether from nature or from training, as certain special troops in the military many have, for example. Fear is not something you eliminate from life. Even Jesus feared the cross. Joan of Arc feared the fire. We fear all the time. Fear is not something you eliminate from life. It is something you learn to live with in better and better ways. And fortunately, it is possible to do so and still have a good life.
