ACIM Lesson 153: In my defencelessness my safety lies.

In my defencelessness my safety lies.

As the Course attests: “The world provides no safety. It is rooted in attack, and all its “gifts” of seeming safety are illusory deceptions.”

Blimey! Don’t hold back!

But it’s true. If I think about it, nothing of the world is stable, relationships end one way or another, I will seemingly ‘die’ at some point and whatever I hold dear can be taken away in an instant.

Why, then, put so much trust in it?

This world is transitory. And whenever the data tries to fool me into thinking otherwise, I will clean.

Defencelessness can never be attacked, the Course tells me, because it carries within it the strength of God. And when I recognise and remember that fact I will indeed put my defences down. Indeed, in an earlier Lesson, I learned that ‘God is the strength in which I trust’ and that:

“God is your safety in every circumstance. His Voice speaks for Him in all situations and in every aspect of all situations, telling you exactly what to do to call upon His strength and His protection. There are no exceptions because God has no exceptions.”

Only God can know the truth and happiest outcome for all situations. Why, then, would I put my trust in the limited information that my eyes can show me when I know that out of the millions of bits of information flooding in through my senses at any given moment my consciousness can only process about forty! That’s insanity!

Best to clean when the wobble towards the data and the ego starts and to repeat once again the key words of Ho’oponopono:

I love you. I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you.

Here, once again, is an invitation to put my faith and trust in the only thing that can be trusted, that is eternal and which will never waver or fail in its total and unreserved love for me.

Why would I do anything else?

“In my defencelessness my safety lies. I love you, I’m sorry, Forgive me, Thank you.”
