When I was a child I was terrified of cows and could not go to sleep until my parents had shown me that there were no cows hiding under my bed or in my cupboard. I can laugh about this now of course but you will start to see this for yourself with your afflictive states: there is absolutely nothing there except imagined fear based on years of indulgence and description. Reliance on short moments and the other Four Mainstays is the key to gradually reveal this directly in your own experience.
