Love and Security

It is perfectly natural to want security--but there are two ways to obtain it--the ego (false self) and the Self.

The ego attempts to create security by grasping at material things, restricting the growth of oneself and others and in attempting to maintain the status quo.

The Self creates security by practicing faith--by constantly expanding outward, by surrender, by letting go of control and by constantly moving forward into new territories of awareness and personal experience. 

There is little real security in controlling the actions of a beloved one, or the conditions of one's environment--although the ego believes this is the only way to make the environment safe for its existence.

The Self knows that, rather than controlling others, it seeks to constantly meet new people and form new relationships. That way, if one relationship doesn't work out--there are many others to pursue and to grow from.

The ego believes in scarcity; the Self knows there is abundance: there are many people to have relationships with, many sources of love and affection. The Self does not demand that one person supply all human need, and therefore, expands outward, constantly growing.

The ego does not want to grow, it is afraid of growth, and is threatened by it.
