“There is no mold, no form, no stock answer. This is why all answers have disappointed you in the past. Your answer is not the same as any other. No matter how filled with wisdom one person’s answer may be, it is not yours. (A Course of Love, 26.20)”
Affirmation: “May I find my personal answer today.”
1 – Different Answers
This passage for today gives an explanation that may have eluded us before. Regardless of what has helped another person, that same word may not help us, because we are all individuals with different pasts, different temperaments, different needs (to a degree). We cannot look to stock answers to find salvation, and especially not to find Awakening or Christ-consciousness. We have to look inward, at the inner Self, for our Answer, an Answer which rests in God.
2 – Turn Inward
Knowing that nothing anybody else can say may help is possibly a downer. So we continue seeking, and we are often disappointed in our seeking. This is all the more reason to turn inward. I believe that accumulation of words from external sources will eventually coalesce into something that can be of benefit to all of us. God uses external sources to get His message out also. Not everything can be learned without any external help.
3 – We Have Sought Long Enough
That is why Jesus has channeled A Course in Miracles, and, some believe, A Course of Love. He wants us to know, in the latter, that we have sought long enough. We are enough. We are ready. And God would seem to be waiting for us to realize this (an interpretation, not stated in ACIM or ACOL).
I would find my personal answers from within. Other people’s answers can help inform mine, but mine alone is sufficient for me. May this not disappoint me, but be cause for joy. I need only turn inward to You, and what I seek will be found in the Christ/Self within.
Be with me today to keep me calm and tranquil. May no difficulties arise, and if they must, may I have the wherewithal to handle them easily and in a relaxed fashion. Help me to be patient with others with whom I interact. May I take care of the needs that are mine to handle, and may I know joy in the process.
