Self-reliance

The Big Book suggests we're frightened because self-reliance fails us.

What is self? The sum total of false ideas about who I am.

If I believe I am a body, I am doomed to die, and I am separate from others, I will be frightened. If I rely on this perception of myself, I will be frightened.

If I believe I am spirit, I will live forever, and I am joined to everyone, I will be fearless. If I rely on this perception of myself, I will be fearless.
