How does fear come about in modern man? Let’s go back a little way here and look in time at the projection of the soul from the Group Soul. Moving forward, we can see the projection from the soul in the form of facets that inhabit the emotional/mental body in a human prototype, and then we see the proliferating, commanding force causing first of all, a disembodied existence. In that disembodied existence we have the beginnings of fear. The reason for this is the forcing away from the soul of that energy that is ultimately to be embodied; the spawning from the soul into the beginning of the end result of the step down of energy, which results in a material form.
There we also have the beginning of emotion, the beginning of that which you call fear. We might just mention that this occurs in a similar but different fashion in all spawnings or projections. All projections leave the parent energy and they experience that which in a human, appears as fear. At the deeper levels in the Logos this is different. This does not mean that the projection from the Logos, allegorically called the Child of the Logos experiences fear because it is separate from the Logos. It means that that enormous intensity, which is the Child of the Logos, will undergo an experience of separateness from its projector.
So looking ahead, then we have the beginning of embodiment, and we have the increasing inflow of forces in the early embodied mankind. We will not worry about the intermediate stages although they, in their turn, also experienced fear.
As mankind appeared as such he began to experience not only the separateness from his projector but the facets began to be exposed to untoward experiences, untoward happenings and the word fear was really born then. It has carried forward in a mounting sense—cycling but mounting.
So how does fear come about in modern day humanity? In this present day the word fear describes that which is an inherent condition of each facet in the emotional/mental body that has carried forward its impression of being separate, and its impression of being compelled to undergo that which it would prefer not to.
Even though the incarnate experience is a necessary part of the development of all personalities, those facets that reincarnate would prefer not to.
