Our Teacher Within
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God,Matthew 6:33 (KJV)
and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.”
Every one of us has a Teacher Within. Call it Jesus, Guru, Higher Self, Guiding Spirit, Voice of the Silence or simply Intuition. There are many names for He who guides us gently through our daily stumbles, steers us away from pain, and invites us patiently to choose once again. He has unlimited patience and never judges us unfavorably.
At any given moment of any given day, we are invited to make many choices: of food, jobs, friends, vacations and the like. The truth is, however, that they are all “non-choices”. They can never bring in any meaningful change in the way we think. The only real choice that we have ever had is whether to follow the Inner Teacher or our selfish separative thoughts, the ego. We choose the way of the Inner Teacher and we get peace and happiness. The choice for the ego leads down to strife, guilt, misery, and suffering. So, which one is it going to be?
May each one of us find the Teacher Within and follow Him home happily sooner than later!
