Whether we realize it or not, we’re all teachers these days and we’re, in every moment, always teaching. A Course in Miracles might have us remember our role as teachers and question “what” we’re teaching by asking us to consider which mindset are we in. There are two mindsets: right-mindedness and wrong-mindedness. Whenever we are in our right minds, we think with the Holy Spirit and bring wisdom, love and forgiveness. Whenever we think with your wrong minds, we think from our ego-self and bring upset, conflict and judgmental thoughts. Since we’ve no neutral thoughts, we’re always projecting one thought system or the other. Fortunately, we are able to determine which thought system we want to teach. All that’s needed is our willingness to accomplish so.
Throughout our days, we teach in several ways. We teach with your appearance, how we’re groomed and exactly how we carry ourselves. We teach with your selection of words and whenever we elect to withhold our words. We teach with your voice, with the quantity and pace of our speaking. We teach with your eyes and through the connection we make or don’t make with others. We teach with your actions and in-actions. Since minds are connected, we teach invisibly with the thoughts we hold in mind. We constantly reveal ourselves to your self and to others. The question is, that 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?
There are clues from what we’re teaching in every encounter we have. Whenever we feel well about bringing gentleness and kindness, with being truly helpful to some other person, we’re surely inside our right minds. We’re extending what God might have us extend in the world the message of a course in miracles. Whenever we feel hurried and frazzled and are abrupt with another, whenever we avoid eye contact and talk at people as opposed to to them, we’ve certainly forgotten who we truly are.
What’s promising is, we’re not at the mercy of our egos! We don’t have to go through our days on auto-pilot being reactive within a ridiculous world. We could choose in any moment to be proactive, to create peace to your minds and to increase that peace to the world. After all, isn’t that what we really want to teach?
