Fearlessness

Hare Krishna,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.

Here is a nice realization taken from HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj's diary:

"When one is aware of one's self as spirit soul, and when one understands the soul's eternal relationship with Krishna, then only does well-being begin. Otherwise everyone in the world is in anxiety and everyone is terribly alone and isolated, regardless of how they try to cover it up. Whether a person appears to be very popular and dominating in the midst of social settings or whether he or she is a loner, everyone is factually alone.No other person or group can take an individual's karma and share it completely and no one dies with us within our own consciousness when we die. No one appreciates exactly how nice we are, and no one knows the long history of our sorrow. Krishna Consciousness therefore not only provides association with spiritual persons, it also gives the solution to loneliness. That solution is self-realization by understanding that Krishna is one's best friend, and the devotee feels immense relief. We must thus have firm conviction that Krishna as Paramatma will take care of a surrendered soul to him. 'I shall never be alone. Even if I live in the darkest region of a forest I shall be accompanied by Krishna, and He will give protection.' One should think like this. This conviction is called Abhayam or Fearlessness."

Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev,
Kalacakra Krsna das.
