The thing that you have to resist is the fear that poses some sort of threat to you and your sense of peace and joy. If this kind of fear cloaks itself as something beneficial then you begin to experience some extremely negative consequences. When fear is the unseen force that poses a threat to your existing belief system you will experience an intense emotional reaction. Your belief system does not have to be based on truth it just has to be founded upon something that you belief to be true. Your belief system can be totally wrong but if you believe that it is true then if something threatens you and your beliefs then you will experience fear and that fear will run your life and determine your outcome in any situation through this intense emotional reaction.
