Fear. Zen.

So, what does Zen say about being afraid? Fear is a prime reason why human beings try to find something superior to them, something that can help them, get them out of trouble. Various religions have used fear as a way of imposing morality – they define someone who can see everything and can punish people for what it defines as wrong. To some extent, it works very well, however – one place it fails miserably is that every religion has its own definitions of wrong.
