In A Course In Miracles Workbook lesson #261 – God is my refuge and security, W.pg 426, we are gently guided to see God aka LOVE as our security blanket in all situations. Yes, you can even suck your thumb if needed!
My youngest son used to drag his security blanket, an old white one that I continually had to make smaller because of the ragged condition, until it finally became the size of a small towel. He would hold the blanket under his arm with his thumb as his comfort. Sometimes he would have “White-ie”, our white cat tucked under his other arm.
So like him we can use God as our security blanket or whatever we imagine God to be, placing Him in a safe spot to carry around during the day.
If you read in the Workbook pg. 425, What Is the Body? Jesus tells us in the last paragraph:
“You will identify with what you think will make you safe Whatever it may be, you will believe that it is one with you. Your safety lies in truth, and not in lies. Love is your safety. Fear does not exist. Identify with love, and you are safe. Identify with love and you are home. Identify with love, and find your Self.”
As you go throughout your day, driving, waiting in line, working, walking or exercising, project LOVE out at the world and everyone and everything. Just look and with your powerful mind…..beam LOVE! Love is our Security Blanket in all situations.
Beam love at yourself in the morning mirror! Beam it at anyone you are holding a grudge against; your boss, old girl or boy friend, a Politian and remember what you are Holding in your MIND you are identifying with, be it hate or love or fear!
