Our immediate response to danger is to protect ourselves, and rightly so. However, when the danger is everywhere around us, as in poverty and war, or living in our homes, and unescapable, what was a momentary response can become a way of life. Restricting and inhibiting, when fear lives within us, our hearts and minds close and our bodies bear the brunt of self-protection. Yet, safety is possible. Our Souls will always direct us to the best situations and relationships necessary for our wellbeing. Sometimes we must physically travel to reach a safe destination. At other times, the move is emotionally and mentally inward to find the calm nurturing within. In either case, when we open up to new possibilities and are willing to entertain opportunities we may have never considered, our Souls are prepared to show us the way.
