Questioner: Is there a connection between fear and suspicion?
Dadashri: Suspicion gives rise to fear and fear creates suspicion. They are both like cause and effect. One should not have any suspicions at all. Do not be suspicious about anything. Do not be suspicious about whether your son or your daughter is going off on the wrong track. Make an effort to improve this.
Questioner: But suspicion occurs from moment to moment.
Dadashri: Suspicion is the same as killing your own self. Do not ever have suspicions.
Questioner: But why does suspicion arise? The question is not about 'doing' it; it simply occurs every moment for me.
Dadashri: Because it occurs you have to say, 'This suspicion is not mine, this is not mine'; the moment it occurs you have to say this. The Self is beyond suspicion and our mahatmas are in that state. This world is rotting away because of suspicion. Suspicion is demise of the world. One is going to die someday but why does he not have suspicion over that? Is he not going to die someday?
Questioner: One definitely knows that he is going to die.
Dadashri: But why does he not have suspicion over that? If he starts to have suspicion about his death, he immediately removes it. The moment he has suspicion, he gets rid of it. He feels very afraid. That is why it has to be removed. You have to pluck it out and throw it away. The moment it sprouts, you have to uproot it and throw it away.
