“A meaningless world engenders fear.”
Usually people are not aware that there is an underlying message of truth behind each and every appearance. As long as they are unaware of that, they may believe that if they do not make sense of appearances themselves they will end up in some kind of void. And that is scary. And so, it will take a leap of faith to let go of the interpretations of appearances they are in the habit of making.
You may want to experiment with this a bit. Whenever something in your environment strikes you as puzzling or in any way less than desirable, tell yourself: “The monkey mind is apparently in the process of making sense of this and not doing a very good job at it. I would very much like to know what this truly means.” Then let go of the monkey mind trail. Don’t be scared, be happy. For now you have allowed an opening inside in which the truth can reveal itself. And it will, more and more, for the door is now ajar.
