False security does not allow your faith to grow. Faith grows only when you have dropped your securities.
False security is keeping faith where it doesn’t belong. It is the illusion of security in having a job, a house, friends.
Even if you have all the material securities, without faith you will still reel in fear. When you buffer your life with securities, you keep faith away.
Faith is your greatest security. Faith brings perfection in you.
Keep money in the bank or in the pocket, not in the mind. Keep the house where it belongs, not in the mind. Keep friends and family where they belong, not in the mind. You have to let go of all possessions in the mind.
Your body belongs to the world.
Your spirit belongs to the Divine.
The Divine is your only security.
Faith is realizing that you always get what you need. Faith is giving the Divine a chance to act.
