“…Christ has blessed you with the Holy Spirit. Now the Spirit stays in you, and you don’t need any teachers. The Spirit is truthful and teaches you everything. So stay one in your heart with Christ, just as the Spirit has taught you to do.” (I John 2: 27, Contemporary English Version)
You have your instructor always with you. The Christ-light which you have accepted as valid and true, the reality of man and God, remains with you. This light does not need another person to light it, interpret it, or explain it. It is written in your heart by Spirit itself, by God’s own loving revelation, and this Truth is always right where you are to be realized and demonstrated.
This certainly does not mean we have to go everything alone. We must surely be willing to receive of God’s generous provision of ideas shared by others through inspiration and love, when it feels right and true to us. It also doesn’t mean that we aren’t able to, even required to, help others recognize, remember, reclaim that light of Truth. But just stay clear in recognizing that another’s human interpretation of the Truth is just that—their interpretation. Someone’s personal understanding of God is not entirely pure and may not be right for you, nor may yours be just right for them.
You don’t need an intermediary. God’s voice to you is right with you, teaching you every day, at just the right pace for your life and in a unique way that suits your individuality. The Christ has left that instructive Holy Spirit with us, revealing the ever active law that is ours because it remains in our heart, because we have continued to love it.
