Teaching what?

t: , 4 Comments

We tend to see teaching as a profession, but A Course in Miracles says “Everyone teaches, and teaches all the time.”  Every moment of every day, we are teaching those we encounter and ourselves what we believe about the world. We are also teaching the world how to treat us. My friend Ken eats a lot […]

A typical day for me begins by plugging in my unnamed laptop, grabbing my portable two-way radio from its charger, and listening to voicemail. It’s nothing for me to have 5 or 6 to listen to and take notes on before I begin making calls. It’s the busyness of the job and I’m stopped several […]
