“My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability. How can I know who I am when I see myself as under constant attack? Pain, illness, loss, age and death seem to threaten me. All my hopes and wishes and plans appear to be at the mercy of a world I cannot control. Yet perfect security and complete fulfillment are my inheritance. I have tried to give my inheritance away in exchange for the world I see. But God has kept my inheritance safe for me. My own real thoughts will teach me what it is.”


Perhaps I was unwilling to understand this lesson–until now. It’s title seemed weird to me. My what? Invulnerability? How can I be invulnerable when I can suddenly have an accident as I did yesterday? I fell unexpectedly on the way home from church. Except for a bruised side and foot, I wasn’t injured, but such accidents seem to say that this lesson is a lie. At any time, I can fall, or the weather can turn nasty, or I can become ill–all manner of things that the ego shows me to prove how vulnerable I am. This review tells me that all this negative thinking is itself the lie. God has not deserted me and taken my true nature away. It’s still there, and I can know it if I simply listen within.

Blessings,

Mari

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
