Hare Krishna Alex. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. A view on this particular topic from a Krishna conscious perspective is that all fear and anxiety take place due to bodily identification. The message of the Bhagavad-Gita is that we are not these temporary material bodies but we are eternal spirit souls. This material world is comprised of the external energy of the Lord and it is compared to darkness and Krishna's internal energy is spiritual and superior to the external energy and is compared to the sunshine. The individual souls are called Jivas and we are also superior to the external energy and our natural constitutional position is that of an eternal servant of the Lord. However we have unfortunately become materially conditioned from our existence since time immemorial, in this material world. And due to our identifying with the external energy which our bodies are comprised of, we consequently have become entangled in this material existence. We have a choice, we can serve Krishna or we can serve the external energy. By serving Krishna and becoming Krishna conscious we no longer identify with matter and the material energy. Therefore we become transcendentally situated and as a consequence we become free from fear and anxiety. This is because by becoming fully self-realized as that of an eternal servant of the Lord we identify with our true spiritual nature which is sac-chit-ananda, eternal, full of knowledge and bliss. Haribol. I hope this is of help for you Alex. Thanks for your question. Your servant, Bhakta David.
