RamDev - Healing at the Edge - Ep. 37 - Faith & Fear

RamDev offers a dharma talk on the interconnection between fear and faith, looking at how closely our depth of faith is tied to our experience of fear.

Letting Go of Fear

How does our faith dictate our fear of the unknown? Dale investigates the root of fear and how faith opens a space in our hearts where fear cannot reside.

“When I was in India, Ram Dass had this saying that he came up with, ‘Faith, no fear. Fear, no faith.’ If you have got faith, there is no fear. If you have fear, there is no faith.” –  RamDev RamDev 

The Depth of Faith (12:40)

Dale looks at the level of faith required if we want to fully open our hearts. What can we learn about our depth of fate when we see our love falling short? Dale opens the floor to his live audience, looking at how we can deal with anxiety and fear with compassion.

“The main question is, ‘How deep is my faith?’ I notice that if I really ask myself howcome I am not more loving, I always come back to the place where I don’t have enough faith. That the faith only goes down to a certain depth in me.” –  RamDev RamDev 

Loving Fear (22:40)

Can we have a quality of genuine love for our fear, just as we hold love for our pain? Dale explores the possibility of first loving fear by being fully present for it when it arrives.

“Having this more loving relationship with our experience can allow us to more easily see its sacred nature.” –  RamDev RamDev
