The line between being in the body and out of the body is a fine one. There is no ultimate safety in the body. It’s an illusion. Spirit is the only constant. Everything else changes.
When we experience ourselves as Spirit, we touch the part of us that actually is safe. But can we honestly say to a child, I will keep you safe? It is much better to say, I will protect you.
We are united in our human vulnerability and our spiritual magnificence. In the human form it is important to accept that we are susceptible to physical and emotional suffering. If we look honestly, we can then use our wisdom to determine our best course of action, attuned with our highest self – our inner integrity, instead of reacting with fear.
