I would say that when the fear dissipates you are feeling at home in the universe; meaning your identity with your separateness isn’t overriding your feeling of connection with everything to the point that you’re feeling cut off and vulnerable - which is where the root of the fear is.

So as you cultivate that unitive quality, the fear dissipates. The relation is one between love and fear, but it’s not the love in the sense of ‘I love you’, its the sense that we are together in the space of love.

“There are all kinds of addicts. Some are addicted to drugs. They have gone through hell watching their lives fall apart without being able to change. Then there are those addicted in more subtle aspects, such as rejecting and being rejected, in seduction, envy, lying, greed, and power. Often, subtle addictions are even more destructive because they are not so easily detected. But no matter what the addiction is, all serve the same purpose which is to numb the mind so that you don't feel pain and thus keep you far from yourself.”
