219 QUESTION: So many children are afraid of things like monsters coming out of the closet at night. Could you perhaps help with this?
ANSWER: Perhaps there are two parts to this answer. If you are very excited by monsters and there is an excitement and interest in them, like reading about them, then you will also create a fear of them.
The other part of the answer is: perhaps if you are very angry and you have hate in you and you think you are so bad because you hate, then you create the idea of a monster. And if you can really say, “Yes, I hate and it is due to a misunderstanding, and I will work that through, I will work with my hate,” then the fear of monsters will go away. You will not be so fascinated by these spooky things.
