“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.
