"Just as a dreamer is foolishly alarmed at his own dreams or as a fool is deluded by the serpents created in a magic performance, so also the man ignorant of the Self is terrified."--Tripura Rahasya

Where is the fear when there is no other? Fear can only happen when there is a belief that there is something outside omnipresent God. Which of course cannot be by definition alone. And if one is inside of God and God is inside (which has to be if God is omnipresent), and thus no separation between God and the Self, then fear is only a delusional thought of the ego that believes it is separate, alone and confined to a body that is only here a moment and awaits the inevitable hand of death.
