The belief in attack is buried deep within the mind. While an external enemy is believed in, attack will continue to be witnessed in everyone and everything. From small criticisms to dragon fireballs being hurled at your home, it is actually the same. Attack is a denial of self and it is not until our function and our true identity is accepted that the world can transform to a place of love, gentleness and collaboration. The enemy is not the enemy at all! It was a misperception! When the need for defense is dropped, innocence is recognized and all it takes is a loving gesture for the fiercest enemy to become an adorable and potentially powerful mighty companion!
You are not fooling anyone when you are trying to be something that you are not! Seeking the approval of a father figure will never work because the one seeking approval is confused about identity. The deeply rooted belief in the ego which is the same as the belief in attack, has to be raised up out of its hiding place and faced to put an end to a meaningless battle. It ends today!
