Anyway, I have a lot of local fears, the fears of the body, the fears that any creature aware of danger and mortality has. I fear falling when I lean precariously from a great height. I fear dying painfully. These are normal fears of the body.
They aren't my greatest fear, though. My greatest fear is not so immediate and neither do I think it will happen. Still, it is the driving force of my life. So let me step back and explain it.
Like Ramana, I believe in sychronicity. I believe it is an indicator of meaning in a life, an indicator that connected events tell a story, much as a novel does. If it has meaning, it means that one is born to a meaning, to a purpose, to a life task.
My biggest fear is to miss the point of my life, to live it only to find on the other side that I was born to do something that I simply didn't perceive or was too lazy or too cowardly to carry out.
I really don't want that to happen. Really!
