Overcome Fear

Wherever you have a concept of the "other," whom you fear, whom you resent, whom you resist, at whom you become angry when your path is crossed, with whom you become jealous when you want the same thing and he wants the same thing. That "other," be it a person within the family, be it a neighbor, be it a family to another family, or a person of a racial group, or a religious group, or a language group, or a country or a nation. Wherever you have this concept of the "other," you will have fear. And all fear is fear of death. And fear of death causes death. Remember this last part, last sentence. It's fear of death that hastens your death.
