Lately I have been re-reading the ACIM (A Course in Miracles). Here are some lines from Section 1, that is an exeptional approach on the subject teacher, student and the learning experience itself.
The more I read each chapet from it, the more I like it.
The more I read it, the more I understand it. I like to read each sentence and chapter over and over again, sit on it, digeste it , let is sink in. It seems to me that not only each chapter, but each sentence has a teaching in it.
“A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one.
His qualifications consist solely on this. Somehow, somewhere he has made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else’s. Once he has done that, his road is established and his direction is sure. A light has entered the darkness. He has entered an agreement with God. He has become a teacher of God.
They come from all over the world. They come from all religions and from no religion.
They are the ones who have answered.
The Call is universal.
It goes on all the time everywhere. It calls for teachers to speak for It and redeem the world. Many hear It, but few will answer. Yet it is all a matter of time.
Everyone will answer in the end, but the end can be a long, long way off.
The central theme of the teaching is always Gods son is guiltless, and in his innocence is his salvation. It can be taught by actions or thoughts in words or soundlessly, in any language or in no language, in any place or time or manner. “
