People are Frequently Teaching.
July 4, 2020 Business
Whether we realize it or not, we are all teachers nowadays and we are, in every moment, always teaching. A Course in Miracles could have us remember our role as teachers and question “what” we are teaching by asking us to take into account which mindset are we in. You will find two mindsets: right-mindedness and wrong-mindedness. When we have been in our right minds, we think with the Holy Spirit and bring wisdom, love and forgiveness. When we think with this wrong minds, we think from our ego-self and bring upset, conflict and judgmental thoughts. Since we’ve no neutral thoughts, we are always projecting one thought system or the other. Fortunately, we can determine which thought system we should teach. All that is needed is our willingness to complete so.
Throughout our days, we teach in many ways. We teach with this appearance, how we are groomed and exactly how we carry ourselves. We teach with this range of words and when we choose to withhold our words. We teach with this voice, with the amount and pace of our speaking. We teach with this eyes and through the text we make or don’t make with others. We teach with this actions and in-actions. Since minds are connected, we teach invisibly with the thoughts we hold in mind. We constantly reveal ourselves to our self and to others acim. The question is, who are we revealing? Are we revealing our Real self or have we entered the day on auto-pilot and are interaction on our default mode, our ego-mode?
You will find clues to what we are teaching in every encounter we have. When we feel well about bringing gentleness and kindness, with being truly helpful to a different individual, we are surely inside our right minds. We are extending what God could have us extend in the world. When we feel hurried and frazzled and are abrupt with another, when we avoid eye contact and talk at people as opposed to in their mind, we’ve certainly forgotten who we truly are.
The good thing is, we are not at the mercy of our egos! We don’t have to proceed through our days on auto-pilot being reactive within a crazy world. We can choose in just about any moment to be proactive, to create peace to our minds and to extend that peace to the world. All things considered, isn’t that what we really want to teach?
