"The ego must get your ear,
in order to get your voice,
in order to seem to exist."
Temptation is bait.
Temptation is bait, dangled in front of you.
Temptation is bait, dangled in front of you, which you have the choice to bite . . . and thereby discover the hook embedded in.
Temptation is bait, dangled in front of you, which you have the choice to bite, and thereby discover the hook embedded in, or . . .
just let dangle there . . . forever!
Remember: The only thing the ego cannot defend itself against is disregard, and this is why "in your defenselessness your safety lies." In your defenselessness is your Peace. In your Peace is your Sanity. In your Sanity is your conscious union with God, your direct experience of invulnerability, and the inability to see temptation as anything other than a call for love. Andthat you can respond to with healing.
