The Answer That Brings Happiness

A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one. ²His qualifications consist solely in this; somehow, somewhere he has made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else’s. ³Once he has done that, his road is established and his direction is sure. ⁴A light has entered the darkness. ⁵It may be a single light, but that is enough. ⁶He has entered an agreement with God even if he does not yet believe in Him. ⁷He has become a bringer of salvation. ⁸He has become a teacher of God.

⁹Everyone will answer in the end, but the end can be a long, long way off. ¹⁰It is because of this that the plan of the teachers was established. ¹¹Their function is to save time. ¹²Each one begins as a single light, but with the Call at its center it is a light that cannot be limited. ¹³And each one saves a thousand years of time as the world judges it.

There is a course for every teacher of God. ²The form of the course varies greatly. ³So do the particular teaching aids involved. ⁴But the content of the course never changes. ⁵Its central theme is always, “God’s Son is guiltless, and in his innocence is his salvation.” ⁶It 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. ⁷It does not matter who the teacher was before he heard the Call. ⁸He has become a savior by his answering. ⁹He has seen someone else as himself. ¹⁰He has therefore found his own salvation and the salvation of the world. ¹¹In his rebirth is the world reborn. (A Course in MiraclesManual for Teachers, M-1.1;2:9-13;3)

God is always calling for teachers. In every moment we choose whether to answer His Call. Do we want to see our brother as the Love he is or do we want to see him as separate, different and capable of harm? To answer His Call, we must be willing to see the innocence of Love in our brother. We must be willing to see that his true desire is the same as ours—to be and give only Love. When we join in that desire, we answer God’s Call. Love becomes the Guide we follow with our thoughts, words and deeds.

Shall we answer the Call to be a teacher of God today? Do we want to be happy? The answer to these questions is the same.
