Faith in practice - You cannot not teach

Principle 2
You cannot not teach

We are teaching all the time by our example, by the way we live our lives. We either teach the way of the ego or the way of the Spirit. 

The way of the ego is based on the two principles of “give to get” and “one or the other.” The way of the ego believes life as a zero sum game. We both can’t win. What I take you lose and what you take I lose.

The way of the Spirit is Oneness which is born out of unconditional love. We become aware that we are all in this thing called Life together and either we all win or we all lose. What happens to you happens to me. When I give to you, I receive. When you give to me, you receive as well.

Our behavior teaches others what we believe. Do we believe in the way of the ego or the way of the Spirit? Everything we do teaches others what you believe you are and what you believe they are to you.

Questions for action - Who and what do you believe you are and others are to you? Do you see life as a competition or a sharing?
