A Course In Miracles – Being A Teacher Of God Series ~ Giving To Know You Have

Being A Teacher Of God
Giving To Know You Have

“The term generosity has special meaning to the teacher of God. It is not the usual meaning of the word; in fact, it is a meaning that must be learned and learned very carefully. Like all the other attributes of God’s teachers this one rests ultimately on trust, for without trust no one can be generous in the true sense. To the world, generosity means “giving away” in the sense of “giving up.” To the teachers of God, it means giving away in order to keep.”

As an awakened mind this makes perfect sense to me. It’s the experience that when you give, you are actually giving only to yourself, and why wouldn’t you want to give to yourself?

“The teacher of God is generous out of Self interest. This does not refer, however, to the self of which the world speaks. The teacher of God does not want anything he cannot give away, because he realizes it would be valueless to him by definition…But he does want to keep for himself all things that are of God, and therefore for His Son. These are the things that belong to him. These he can give away in true generosity, protecting them forever for himself.”

It works so perfectly that you really won’t believe it until you experience it for yourself. Do it today…GIVE! And see what happens.
