A Course In Miracles – Being A Teacher Of God Series ~ Becoming Defenseless

Being A Teacher Of God

Becoming Defenseless

God’s teachers have learned how to be simple. They have no dreams that need defense against the truth. They do not try to make themselves. Their joy comes from their understanding Who created them. And does what God created need defense? No one can become an advanced teacher of God until he fully understands that defenses are but foolish guardians of mad illusions. The more grotesque the dream, the fiercer and more powerful its defenses seem to be. Yet when the teacher of God finally agrees to look past them, he finds that nothing was there. Slowly at first he lets himself be undeceived. But he learns faster as his trust increases. It is not danger that comes when defenses are laid down. It is safety. It is peace. It is joy. And it is God.”

That’s going to be a bit of a step for you, only because you are so use to defending yourself as a justification for your conceptual (ego) identity. As you enter into your own process, you will become more attuned to when you start to defend yourself, and the training would always be, in those moments, to stop and look at what it is you think needs your defense. This usually is followed by “Oh my God, I’m completely nuts! Father I need help.”

And as you start to trust that the help HAS BEEN GIVEN, you can step back and not impose what you think is the solution. This may seem to take practice… so be it, PRACTICE!
