The Lord is the unseen foundation on which your life is built. He is the source, sustenance and strength. Without His Will, no leaf can turn, no blade of grass can quiver. What firmer foundation can you desire than this? Once you know that the Lord, the omnipotent power, is the mainspring of your life, there will be no fear any more. When you suspect the strength of the foundation of a house, you are afraid to enter it; when you suspect the skill of the manufacturer, you are nervous to ride in the car. Bhishma and other bhaktas, as well as Sankara an other jnanis, knew that the Lord is the adhara, and so they had no fear at all. But, that faith has not taken root in man today and so, this has become an age of fear an anxiety, of asanthi.
