ACIM is a SELF study, and once our Self and our Function in Gods plan is realized by us... THAT is what we execute and live for everyday. The acceptance of what is True, in place of what we formally believed, carries us beyond being a teacher of a teaching aid, and into being a miracle worker as the voice for God directs.
Being a Teacher of A Course in Miracle can indeed be helpful for a while. What we teach we learn. As we teach A Course in Miracles, we MUST turn the teachings upon ourselves and apply them to our own life experiences. This application is what shifts us into the realm of literally working miracles and creating.... versus just talking about miracles and ideas of forgiveness. Once we actually forgive our brothers and our self, we know there is another way to live and be in the world that is far beyond talking about its possibility. This new way is boundless, joyful, creative and free. We are all learning to get here whether we teach ACIM, or the love in the bible, or science or anything that points to the limitlessness of our reality.
If we don't realize that there is a step BEYOND being a "Teacher of A Course In Miracles" it becomes far too easy to use the new label of "A Course in Miracles Teacher" as a new identity, instead of letting go of any identity we make for ourselves all together. This keeps your full realization of being One with God and experiencing the supreme happiness and purpose that this SELF acceptance brings, wavering and at a distance. As Jesus says, "Place no idols before Him", and by being and identifying with A Course in Miracles Teacher, we are making ourselves into an idol for others. ACIM is not meant to be turned into a religion or turned into a way to make a profit. It is solely to set us free, to be happy and to inspire us to give and serve our fellow man. There is no "getting" in this equation. We are learning to Give totally, as God only Gives. "To Have all, Give all, To all." - A Course in Miracles
No one is greater or better then another. Not one person has the answers more then you do. We are all perfect equals who have come from the same source, share the same identity, and have the same inner teacher of the Holy Spirit (and Jesus!) to remind us of everything that is True. We all can ask for and receive guidance and miracles today. Everyday we can choose to ask and receive what we need to know, and let the ripple effect of that we experienced in our life and world. These experiences will teach us how to be the greatest teacher we can be.
"To Teach is to Demonstrate" - A Course in Miracles
“I am here ONLY to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent Christ,Who sent me.
I do NOT have to worry about what to say or what to do because
He Who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever He wishes, knowing He goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal. ”
