“In unity and relationship, each is not only capable but will inevitably receive the answer and come to the understanding or interpretation that is right for her or his heart. (Addendum to A Course of Love: Learning in the Time of Christ)”
Affirmation: “May I interpret life well today.”
1 – We Are One
We are One, in unity as One and in relationship to the All. These two words, “unity and relationship,” are used repeatedly in A Course of Love. And well they are, for they emphasize a major theme that complements the idea that mind and heart need to work together in wholeheartedness. If we are wholehearted, we will rejoice in the camaraderie that we know with others, as well as with ourselves and God Himself. There is no end to the joy that we will know.
2 – Interpret Life Well
We will come to interpret life well. We will no longer be lost in a maze of confusion. The things that we need to do will occur to us at the point that knowing what to do becomes important. We are led, and led gently and well by God, Who knows us better, of course, than we know ourselves.
3 – Life Improves
Be with us today as we seek to interpret well. May our analysis of the day be benign, slighting no one. May we know that life gets better as we seek God more often. When He becomes our constant companion, the one to whom we refer all perplexities, we will be well on our way Home. And Home is not the Other Side, but the real world that A Course in Miracles tells us about. This is the world that we will see when enlightenment is sustained in our elevated physical Self.
May I come to know, to interpret, my life as it is meant to be interpreted, in an accurate way. May I know what to do and when. And may I remain calm and joyous, letting confusion drop away. When anxious moments arise, may I just let them go. And let them go in the moment, the Now.
Be with me as I travel through this day. May I no longer pay my “pound of flesh,” as a Shakespearian character did, but know that being anxious is not a talisman to keep bad things from happening. I would live in trusting You. May that strong degree of trust engulf me today.
If my mind strays to worry, may I know that I am failing to have enough faith to get through the day. You don’t send bad things, but in our world bad things do happen. And there is always a good lesson in these things that will eventually, and sooner rather than later–in faith–take us home to You. A home in this world that is heaven on earth.
