"Be not afraid"!

Many people today are looking for ways to combat their fears. Fear may take different forms: worry about our health, family or friends, or loss of confidence in our ability to cope with the demands made on us in our everyday life. We may also have anxieties about the well-being of the world's children, or injustice for minorities, or possible nuclear annihilation. There would be few people, when asked, who could say they were completely free from fear.

Some try to ignore their fears, and others look to alcohol or drugs to soothe them and give them a temporary prop. Yet material palliatives often have a numbing effect on the mind and body, and they do not afford any permanent relief.
