“To teach is to demonstrate. There are only two thought systems, and you demonstrate that you believe one or the other is true all the time.From your demonstration others learn, and so do you.The question is not whether you will teach, for in that there is no choice.The purpose of the course might be said to provide you with a means of choosing what you want to teach on the basis of what you want to learn.You cannot give to someone else, but only to yourself, and this you learn through teaching.Teaching is but a call to witnesses to attest to what you believe.It is a method of conversion.This is not done by words alone.Any situation must be to you a chance to teach others what you are, and what they are to you.No more than that, but also never less.” ACIM~ Manual for Teachers
Teaching has been an important part of my transformation, why? It’s where I usually learn the most about what it is I really think. It’s the exposure that is the uncomfortable apart but that is also where the correction can and does occur. I like to use Jesus because He doesn’t take any of my crap and yet what He offers is completely without judgement, very matter of fact like.
I need and get alot of help. There is such a strong compulsion to solve the problem, work it out , make it right, Ha! What can I say I’m an addict. Learning the problem can’t be solved, allowing it to “fall apart”, and seeing just how much I am dependant on God can be quite an ordeal. But to tell you the truth I don’t have a choice. I was chosen for this, do you understand? Do you really think I would volunteer to do this? For instance, lets look at the recuitment officer, Jesus. He was here, He performed miracles, healed the sick, raised the dead and He lasted 3 short years before He was nailed to a tree ( yeah, that’s not in the brochure). So you think I want anything to do “SALVATION OF THE WORLD” Ha, give me a break!
The thing is, this IS the last thing you will do here. And I guess that’s why it’s simply time, time for me to make the declaration and time for you to hear it.
This is not a real place. You are in a dream of your own making and it’s time to awaken to your natural inheritence. You have all the Power of Creation, like our Father. How you can stand to be content with the nothingness of this little place is beyond me. Is that alittle too tough for you? Will you try to shut me up? of course.Will you try to destroy me? Sure! But I am out of time, I don’t have a choice, I am unable to go back and so, with all the help in the universe, I have given in.
There IS an experience awaiting you. Once your done with all your studying of A Course In Miracles, which is what the denial is, you will simply give up and that’s when it will happen and you will be changed forever and you too will be unable to go back because you too have been chosen.
Merry Christmas indeed!
