“In Touch”: Conditioned to try to control how we appear to others. Part two

.
.
There are still subtler and more powerful fears around releasing the chronic inner grip upon ourselves:
.
we may lose control, become disoriented, and not know who we are.
.
Essentially, it is a fear of the unknown.
.
We tend to choose a known suffering over an unknown freedom.
.
If I am not a contracted, separate self, what am I?
.
What will happen if this tight fist—this inner contraction that relates to my core sense of self—lets go?
.
Will I fragment and go insane?
.
Will I be able to function in daily life?
.
Will I disappear?
