Whether we realize it or not, we are all teachers these days 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 think about which mindset are we in. You can find two mindsets: right-mindedness and wrong-mindedness. Whenever we have been in our right minds, we think with the Holy Spirit and bring wisdom, love and forgiveness. Whenever 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 you want to teach. All that is needed is our willingness to accomplish so.
Throughout our days, we teach in several ways. We teach with this appearance, how we are groomed and how we carry ourselves. We teach with this choice of words and when we decide to withhold our words. We teach with this voice, with the volume and pace of our speaking. We teach with this eyes and through the connection we make or do not 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 the self and to others metaphysics of a course in miracles. The question is, who’re we revealing? Are we revealing our Real self or have we entered the afternoon on auto-pilot and are interaction on our default mode, our ego-mode?
You can find clues to what we are teaching in every encounter we have. Whenever we feel great about bringing gentleness and kindness, with being truly helpful to some other individual, we are surely in our right minds. We are extending what God could have us extend in the world. Whenever we feel hurried and frazzled and are abrupt with another, when we avoid eye contact and talk at people rather than for them, we’ve certainly forgotten who we truly are.
What’s promising 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 an insane world. We could choose in virtually any moment to be proactive, to bring peace to the minds and to increase that peace to the world. After all, isn’t that what we actually want to teach?
