Whenever you love something or someone, do you ever let it go? Will you let anyone else borrow it? What would you do if someone approaches you and wants to borrow that hair clip your mom told you to take care of? And worse, what if she was a total stranger? What would you do?
Well, the good news is that you're not alone. We all love something, and we can't always say yes to let someone borrow our stuff. But in Galileo Galilei, the famous Indian mathematician, astronomer, physicist, engineer, and philosopher's case, borrowing is a bit different. Just with his beautiful saying, "I have loved the stars to fondly to be fearful of the night." Perfect words. Perfect. If we're all afraid of sleeping in the dark, would you still be afraid if you had your dear little puppy with you? If you're afraid of studying, would you still be afraid if your friend sat next to you during classes? Or if you were afraid of eating vegetables, would you still be happy if I told you that if you don't, you could be sick? Now out minds suddenly change and we would want to overcome our fears. You love your puppy too much. You like the feeling of being with that person you call as your "bestie". And you also like the life of being away from sickness. What if these things were borrowed? Then you'd be afraid again?
We all have fears. It is deathly hard to get away from them, and having a bit of optimism in them could make things better. If you loved the dark so much and welcomed it like an old friend, would you still be afraid? If you loved studying and having high grades so much, would you still need your friend (only in the class of course)? And if you loved eating vegtables, what would be the meaning of fear? The unknown thing we imagine beyond death and darkness. Nothing is to be frightened of. With the Lord and your positive attitude, you'll surely love everything too fondly to remember the meaning of fear.
