How to overcome fear of suffering? The first step to become successful

Transcript: If you try to control the variety of situations that may pop up in your face tomorrow morning, all that'll happen is, you will become a very limited life. You would step out into the world and do whatever that needs to be done only if you have an assurance, no matter what you walk into, you will not lose yourself. You will walk full stride, otherwise you'll only be half a step. Most human beings are...

... half steps because the fear of suffering. If this happens, what'll happen to me? If that happens, what'll happen to me? If you're well-managed within yourself, you know how to manage your thought. You know how to manage your emotion. You know how to manage your body, your chemistry, your energy. If you know how to manage all this, what does it matter if you walk into hell, I'm asking. If you're well-managed, if you are a heaven within you, what does it matter where you go? Hell also will be an interesting place to go. But, if you're ill-managed, then you want to be in a nice place all the time. You will not step out into anything. I'm not saying this is wrong. This is against nature, because in nature every life is aspiring to be as much as it can be, isn't it? Every life is naturally aspiring. This is not a philosophy, this is not an ideology that you must do this or that. It is natural and intrinsic for every life that it will do as much as it can. From an earthworm, from a worm, to an insect, to a bird, to an animal, to a tree. Every one of them is trying to be full-fledged life. If you go against this simply because of the fear of suffering, then all possibilities of exploring the nature of being human, the tremendous immensity of being human is just lost upon humanity. Today, you will see this everywhere, when people say, "I am only human," they are talking about the limitations of being human. They're not talking about the possibilities of being human, isn't it? When, if we are the most intelligent species on the planet, if we are the most capable species on the planet, should we be talking about our possibilities, or should we be talking about our limitations? Whenever anybody writes or says, "Oh we are human," they are always referring to their limitations, never to the possibilities of being human. This is because the most fundamental things have not been taught in our education systems. How to handle your thought and your emotion. The reason why people have not even learnt to manage their thought and emotion, by the time you're 10 you should have learnt it. At 60, people still don't know how to manage their thought and emotion. They're standing up like ghosts in their life. They don't need anybody's help. They can go on endlessly creating suffering for themselves.

This is an fascinating excerpt from "Death: An Inside Story"! Sadhguru says - "If life happens, then death is natural. Being afraid of something natural is unnatural." Sadhguru explains that the fear of death is just a social conditioning. In India, traditionally death has never been seen as sinister. In fact, "Only when you realize you are mortal, the longing to know that which is beyond will arise." Sadhguru tells us how if one is aware in the last few moments of life, death can be a doorway to liberation.
