If they have no assurance from within themselves, then they are forced to seek it from without; if the Overself's supporting intuition is lacking, then money and possessions, status and family must support them; if there is no faith that the higher laws by which they live will protect and care for them, then there must be fear that the world is a wild jungle around them; if they are unaware that at the very core of their being they are unbreakably linked with the World-Mind which is at the very core of the universe, then they have to tremble at the thought of their helpless situation when the great blows fall.
