Fear or Phobia?

Fear and phobia are two very different things, which I think we have totally confused in our minds. The biggest “spiritual” programming going around these days is that fear is opposite to love and that fear limits us.
Fear is an emotion, whereas phobia is a state of being. Like all emotions, fear shows you what you need to look at. It might be the basic emotion of all “negative” emotions (all the categorizations are of the left-brain’s programming), but it also takes you to the core of your being, if you are willing to go there. 

Fear is based not only on your body’s survival instincts which are registered in your cells’ memory but also on your soul’s memory throughout your existence. It connects you to your all-time experiences, in ways that the rational, linear mind cannot understand, nor does it accept.
