Teaching That Only Love Is Real

To teach is to demonstrate. ²There are only two thought systems, and you demonstrate that you believe one or the other is true all the time. ³From your demonstration others learn, and so do you.… ¹⁰Any situation must be to you a chance to teach others what you are, and what they are to you. ¹¹No more than that, but also never less.

⁷Teaching but reinforces what you believe about yourself. ⁸Its fundamental purpose is to diminish self-doubt. ⁹This does not mean that the self you are trying to protect is real. ¹⁰But it does mean that the self you think is real is what you teach.

Except for God’s teachers there would be little hope of salvation, for the world of sin would seem forever real.… ⁴This is a manual for the teachers of God. ⁵They are not perfect, or they would not be here. ⁶Yet it is their mission to become perfect here, and so they teach perfection over and over, in many, many ways, until they have learned it. (A Course in Miracles, M-in.2:1-3,10-11;3:7-10;5:1,4-6)

In every moment we demonstrate what we believe we are. If what we do is based on our judgments about the world, we teach that separation is real. But if we let the Holy Spirit in our mind judge all things on our behalf, our doing will be directed by His Love. We will teach that only Love is real.

This is our calling. To teach Love’s reality requires a change of mind; a willingness to forgive our judgments, our misperceptions. This is a practice. We have long relied on our own judgments as our source of direction. We need to retrain our mind to respond with Love.

We dedicate today to this practice, for we would teach as God would have us teach. We will learn the single lesson that only Love is real.
