“It is a call whose answer will come to you quickly on the wings of angels, a fluttering your heart will feel, for angels too are one with you. . . .
This is a call that requires you to do nothing but to remain faithful to it. You do not need to think about it, but only let it be. (A Course of Love, 11.16 – 11.17)”
Affirmation: “May I remain faithful to the call today.”
1 – Serenity and Peace
We need to live a serene and peaceful life, for it is this effortless ease with which we truly live or “be.” We do not have to scurry around trying to accomplish all manner of things, many of which would be misguided. God guides us every step of the way, for we are in union with Him. And angels accompany us, as this passage suggests.
2 – We are One
We are all one together. Knowing that we are not meant to be separate from God and from others is a great blessing–just the knowingness of this concept. We do not have to experience dark nights of the soul, though they may come. Even in the blackest night, though, we can realize that the light dawns at the end of the path, that things will get better. We can rest in assurance that this is the case. And we can know that the old adage, “It is darkest just before the dawn,” is true–oh, so true.
3 – The Call
We can answer this call, and we can do so each new day. This is what being faithful to a call really means (an interpretation, not stated in ACIM or ACOL). Every new day that we reaffirm our commitment to God and His purposes is a new beginning for us. And we will know it as the day unfolds. A good beginning always presages a better chance a a good day all along.
4 – Angels
May the angels that accompany us know that we need their presence in our lives. It is an ACOL tenet that angels are one with us, and this tenet is comforting indeed. May we realize that the oneness extends to all. We are one with everyone whom we have ever known, perhaps especially those who are no longer in our pathway. We do not know what lies in the future, and of course that is best. But we can be certain that when we are contented simply to “be,” at least most of the time, the many busy doings of our day will flow smoothly more often than not.
May my guardian angels see me through the day. May I always remember, at least once a day (if not more), to acknowledge their presence in my life. Though it is difficult to acknowledge someone whom I can’t see, it is the best way to live serenely and peacefully. May I be serene and at peace today.
We are all One. May all of us remember this as we seek to head into the next year.
