Fear resides in the matter-fed mind that mind which has been grown and matured by the reception and re-action upon external sensations and stimuli what has been called the objective mind. This mind identifies itself with the form, the body. It has an incorrigible determination towards the form-side, the concrete-side of existence. It sees nothing but the body and is darkened by the forces of Maya.
This mind needs illumination from the soul, the Subjective Man, the "I am I" side of consciousness. It is not that you are a body and have a soul this is the dirty conviction of the matter-fed mind but you are a soul and have a body. The dawn of Soul-Consciousness makes a man a Force for good. He himself is Fearless.
It sees nothing but separation. Yes, it is the matter-fed mind. People with a development of this side of consciousness are invariably selfish; have generally small, conical eyes, understand nothing, but the welfare of the body. They are subject to the fear and the delight in making others fear them.
