To fear God is just the beginning transcendental wisdom; it brings one to the point of trying to follow the laws of God. We know if we disobey His instructions, the stringent laws of material nature will descend on us. However, if we love Him, we’ll automatically do things that He’s pleased with. A loved-one cannot be compared to someone we fear. We can’t get very close to someone we fear. Fear of God is not necessarily misidentification with the body. I first heard of the concept of fear of God in Bilblical literature.
