There are many things that we find frightening in the world and in our lives. One of the first things we learn is to defend against the frightening things in the world. There may be certain times when defending may be necessary, but there are many more times when the best protection is the fullness you create inside of you. When you are present in yourself and in a place where your focus is loving kindness, both for yourself and for others, you are walking in a very protected way. The principle of displacement tells you that if you are filled, that filling displaces any negativity that you may experience. You have the power to make yourself safe. Use the power and let it bring you safety and happiness in the world.
