“In creation, all needs are fulfilled the instant they become needs, which is why there are no needs. If everything you need has been provided, having needs makes no sense. (A Course of Love, 19.14)”
Affirmation: “I find answers as soon as I have needs.”
1 – Needs vs. Wants
All needs are met. All wants are not. Why? What we need is accurate, but what we want may actually hurt us. God protects His children, and He does not give what will ha (from A Course in Miracles). How do we explain the pain of this world? We have free will (not a tenet of either ACIM or ACOL).
2 – Adolescents?
The pain can also be explained by an A Course of Love passage that notes that we have been like adolescents in rebellion, and so God “let go,” much as parents let go their teenage children who are trying to assert their own identity.
3 – Point of Need
It is important to note that needs are met at the point of need–immediately. Of course, we can note in everyday life that we don’t always recognize that our needs have immediately been met. We are slow to see. But see we will, sooner or later, and we can pray that our seeing may be sooner.
4 – No Problems
This passage is akin to the ACIM passage that indicates that we have no problems, though we think that we have. The solution is always placed with the problem–immediately. And so, when we are tuned in, we get our solution as soon as we articulate the problem. And articulating the problem is important, for otherwise we exist in a kind of mind fog.
5 – We Are Protected
May we pray today that our needs, being met, will trouble us no longer. We are prepared for, we are protected, and we have safety. There is a loving God Who does all of this for us.
Thank You for reminding me today that my needs are always met, and not just met sometime, but at the point of need. This is akin to knowing the solution is always with the problem, and that actually we have no problems (though we think we have). Our “wants” are not always met, and perhaps that is a good thing. We often ask amiss.
I would have no part of an adolescent rebellion today. That is to stay in the past. I would welcome Your guidance on a constant basis. That is really the only way to live smoothly. Thank You for given me a right spirit within when I ask for it.
Be wtih me today, aso that I have patience. I need patience, as do all of us, with our loved ones. I am perhaps more impatient than I would like to think. I thought that my life situation gave me a lot of patience, but perhaps that is a fallacy. Be with me today as I see my patience tested. And may I know that true needs will be answered immediately.
