Today's lesson - Attack thoughts are like a mosquito on an elephant's ass.
Our egos are never secure and tell us it's "me or them," "one or the other."
These fears attack our security before they ever even happen in the external world.
"Anxiety" is the biggest mental health problem in the United States and anxiety arises in the face of our fears of vulnerability.
The ego tricks us by generating fears of all kinds. The first step in finding peace is in recognizing and acknowledging what in Alcoholic Anonymous is called "Stinking thinking."
The second step is to recognize and acknowledge that we are spirits in a body not bodies with a spirit. As a spirit we are One with the All and as such cannot be harmed and are eternal.
The lesson 26 for today from A Course In Miracles asks us to say, "My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability." What is invulnerable, by definition, cannot be attacked. On the path of the Spirit, vulnerability makes no sense, only on the path of the ego.
Identify the attack thoughts and rise above them. They are like mosquitoes on an elephant's ass.
