hello friends, I don't know about you, but i find walking in the dark a bit scary, especially when i am alone. It seems to me ,that walking in the dark, is a bit like life. we all have times in our lives ,when we cant see where we are going, worry ,afraid, don't have friends, feel alone, strange things happen, well i think life is a bit like that. I don't think God wants us to be like that,he doesn't was us to be like lost, scared and lonely, friends what do you think? are you afraid of dark? please share your views..

Hi prashu, usually these things happens when you are young your parents maybe scared you about of something that didn't exist. and since then this is remain in your mind and then develop in your later years some kind of mental disturbance, but there's nothing to worry about, you just have to cope up with it that in this world, human beings is the most powerful on earth. cheers.

hi yugasini, oh that's great you are very brave. But many are afraid of dark .And also we get lot of scary dreams when we are afraid of something. Hi angella, is it, but nothing happened like that as far as i remember. I have to overcome this fear and i am working on it.

Literally, yes! I am afraid of the dark, I can't even sleep without a dim light. On the other view, when I am feeling lost in whatever form of life's darkness, I am confident I can get out of it. As long as I have my faith in Him, I am assured that there will always be light to set things right for me. I guess everything He created in this world is balanced. Just like night and day, there will be light and darkness to complete us--to make us understand life and help us survive its challenges.

A nice topic.Yes,when the first human being took birth on this planet,he too must have experienced exactly like that.Nobody knows whether he or she was alone or another human being was with him.The earth was an unknown place for them.Even now when we arrive at a new town we had never visited,where nobody knows us or understands our language.How would we feel being there.Later on we settle there and make friends with others.Is it not like walking in the dark till our eyes get used to the darkness?When we take birth,we start walking in the dark.Later on the world ceases to be a foreign and hostile place for us and we get familiar to it.This happens,because God has given us a powerful mind and a very sensitive heart.He has equipped us with all these,because He does not want us to live here like strangers stranded.That's why we have succeeded have succeeded in creating a society having a large number of friends,relatives and well wishers.I agree with you and thank you for initiating a very good discussion.

what I gather from your post, we may face situations when we feel lonely, helpless and also scared. Life is not always a bed of roses. There will be good moments and there may be the bad. We should however, not be scared of the uncertainty of life.

yes, but i guess that's not in our hands, it happens by itself. when we are scared of something we just don't think of anything else. yes life is not a bed of roses and it is a mix of good and bad.

That is an interesting comparison. Being in the dark can evoke many fearful feeling especially when we are alone. Like in life, sometimes problems are overwhelming and I feel a bit scared as if I'm in a dark tunnel with no escape. What is comforting is to know we are not completely alone in the dark, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel and our faith keeps us strong.

Hi prashu, I agree with you, walking in the dark is, in some ways, a lot like life. There is rarely a time when I walk in the dark anymore as there are street lights everywhere I go, but walking in the dark was common when I was growing up. Likewise,there are times in our lives when we feel that we have no where to turn and have no idea what to do next. It is like we are walking in the dark. Blessings.

I'm not afraid of the dark. I'm more afraid of being alone. I think most people are scared of the unknown which is what the darkness contains. I think if people reach out more and experience more in their life, they'll overcome their fear of the darkness. We can only combat the darkness with light. Just believe that you're never alone and you'll feel brave in any environment.

Not so much.. although it does seem scary if you are all alone and the place is so quiet.. it's like something will grab you at any moment.. Which is why i seldom walk in the dark, or if i do i do not do i alone.

Hi,prashu It is well known that science is mainstream in this modern society. The vast majority of people believe that have no god or other mysterious beings in this world. I don't dare say whether this point true or false. But you know, there are a lot of supernatural things that science can't explain. I'm a lay Buddhist, I just know the Buddha is a man but not a god. The Sutra said "Everything is nothing". You said you were afraid when you waking in the dark alone. I don't think you should. As someone from mylot told you, there is nothing in this world especially the virtual things from your brain. I have been never scaring walking in the dark since I could walk myself. I suggest you don't imagine anything scared when you walk alone. You can listen to the music or sing some songs or imagine some happy things(ex. a pretty girl without clothing) that can help you forget the scared things. Above all just my private view, I hope that can help you. Ulanhad, from China.
