Reader comment on Elisabeth Kubler-Ross & David Kessler's passage ...

When You Don't Choose Love You Choose Fear

I agree that basically there are two emotions that fill our lives- love and fear. The author says that one cannot experience both these feelings at the same time. Here I beg to disagree. I have been in many situations when even though you feel love for a person/ situation there is still fear at the same moment. Its a mixed feeling. Or haven't we all , at least once in a lifetime , felt scared to tell someone that we love him/her , to open our hearts because of fear of being hurt/ misunderstood and so on... So , what I have gathered from the article is that its an ideal situation when one is either in love or in fear. And its a state one would like to strive for...

 Isha, I do agree to you that both the thing exist at the same time because without one there is no existence of the other. The more you love more you fear, lesser you love lesser you fear.
It is great to know that some one loves you and just at the same moment a fear starts in our mind : Will he continue me loving like this all the time? and so with one (Love) the other(Fear) has got existence and without the one the other does not exist.

When we take this in reference to God when we start praying god or get devoted to god or start loving god we start fearing , we may not do any thing to annoy him- and that way with one the other takes existence, if we don't love god we don't fear any thing.
