It was leaf-peeping season in Roscoe, New York in October 2000, when I drove
up to spend the weekend interviewing Ken Wapnick (in between attending his workshops) at The Foundation for A Course in Miracles on Tennanah Lake. The trees along the winding upstate roads were raining gold and burgundy leaves. The air was crisp. Plaid woolen jackets and red hunting caps were the local fashion statement.
Today, February 22nd, is Ken's birthday, so I thought we could celebrate by receiving some timeless insights he shared with me almost 14 years ago.
While re-reading our conversation, it struck me that Ken exhibited a constancy of good cheer, unshakable faith, and generosity, that are signs of God's Mind. This quote from a section in Chapter 21 which Ken often referred to, "The Last Unanswered Question," came to me:"Happiness must be constant, because it is attained by giving up the wish for the inconstant. Joy cannot be perceived except through constant vision. And constant vision can be given only those who wish for constancy." (T-21.VII.13:2-4)
