You are afraid of the unknown, yet you have lived every second of your life with the unknown. You don’t know what the next hour will bring, or the next day. You don’t know where you came from, where you are going, or why. You don’t know one thing about the reason or origin of your consciousness. You don’t even know what your consciousness is! You just keep puttering along, one day at a time, and one day you will disappear. Do not be afraid. Rumi says “Whoever brought me here will have to take me home.”
