Scriptures say that fear comes from the second.There is no fear in deep-sleep state as there is no subject-object duality. 

Fear goes away, therefore, if and only if one sees oneness that pervades all the apparent duality. 

Understanding this truth is one aspect and abidance in that understanding is the next. The problem  for the later is due to remnant raaga dwesahs with aham and mama - dushta chatushatam. They will slowly go as one constantly remembers of one's true nature based on the understanding gained by vedanta sharavana and manana. It is  a life-long process - but as one abides, the FIR, the frequency of perturbation, the intensity of perturbation and the recovery time from perturbation - slowly reduces It is not a discrete event but analog one. 

There are no short cuts here. 

Hari Om!

 Dear Friends,                        To be
 compassionate or to forgive some body's mistakes is not an
 easy task, In order to  this one should be free from fear
 and able to give all the materialistic things without
 expecting anything in return, this can only be done by a
 'Veera' only. Then Question comes is how can we remove our
 fear, some times it comes to us as act of compassion. What
 causes Fear? It can be described as a feeling of not being
 good enough and a feeling of insecurity. It also comes from
 the ignorance of the rules that are in operate in the world
 and possibility of loosing material wealth and
 relationships.Fear can be born from the wrong revengeful
 enemy , lust, target less ness and felling of not able to
 fulfil the committed tasks.           Jainism believes
 removal of all fearful activities describes as abhayadanam
 is the highest quality charity, best action and supreme
 manifestation of compassion.              Compassion
 can also be termed in sometimes as daya, vatsalya, karuna,
 anukampa, karunya, dana, maitri in different sinario's with
 some commonalities. Compassion form the foundation for
 FAITH. As the divine energy present in all human beings is
 same as ESWARA is same in all  & All souls are same
 leading to one final destination. Causing harm to one soul
 is nothing but causing harm to one self  which disrespects
 the universality of the soul as it can be insect or a
 plant.           Even the mosquito / cockroach that
 you spray against its biting has a desire to live and
 striving for its existence as you & I do with the same
 effort.  All are part of Food cycle only. Jains tell us a
 true fact that being compassionate is more than ahimsa. It
 is understanding some one's feeling, appreciation of some
 one's mind, giving them an unique opportunity to live their
 own path by serving the master.
 Here is one examples of one of the 24 dattatreya's guru's is
 Some time back, it was happened that  a monk was doing
 peace in a dancing lady's (Vesaya/kalavti/ not prostitute)
 house. In reality the monk was really testing his will
 power, chitta & steadyness. but the kala's arose  from
 the lady i.e charms made him forget his targets.  Lust was
 overtaking his spiritual thoughts  and inclination. The
 lady rebuked him in a such manner that he became conscious
 of his own foolish acts and back to the path of renunciation
 with his guru's soul.The so called lady i.e courtesan being
 compassionate to the monk for several years. The monk is
 none other than the person who sold is ferari or beloved
 So a person who is on the path of renunciation will get
 automatic support from the nature, mother goddess, guru,
 through all the people whom you meet in the travel path, it
 is certain, only thing one should keep is that Divine
 vision, acceptance to open critics, finally being
 If some one having compassionate hridaya then , liberation
 from this cycle is certain as the sriguru opens the door
 to unite in his atma, will happen. Atma vidya/ srividya
 will take the road to join the ananta jyothi of the
 paramatma/ parabrahama swarupa
