“The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.”

- Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.


Edit: I actually agree on the fear part, it's the part about "reject all help." That has me confused.


It's not in the sense that you "cannot be helped", it is that you "should not fear not being helped". If you were starving you would beg, but that does not mean that you should look at those who do not give you food with malevolence. You cannot be mad at people that do not help.

The context the quote is probably most referring to as rejecting help is in the previous sentence "depend on no one" - when we depend on people, we fear what becomes of us when they do not so choose to help us.

Edit: even though we accept help - if we never did, it would be impossible to fear losing it - but if you never accepted help, because you did not want to fear losing help, you would then fear the fear of losing help. It is about losing the conditions of fear not the opportunities that create fear.
