Help others to become their best selves as you do your Self.

Every good teacher hopes to give his students so much of his own learning that they will one day no longer need him. This is the one true goal of the teacher. It is impossible to convince the ego of this, because it goes against all of its own laws. But remember that laws are set up to protect the continuity of the system in which the lawmaker believes. It is natural for the ego to try to protect itself once you have made it, but it is not natural for you to want to obey its laws unless you believe them. The ego cannot make this choice because of the nature of its origin. You can, because of the nature of yours. T-4.I.5:1-7

The good teacher wants to empower their students so that they no longer need them to teach but can join them as One.

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step twelve, that the spiritual awakening of the program be shared with others so that they, too, can become spiritually awakened if they choose to do so.

In Unitarian Universalism people join together to affirm and promote the acceptance and encouragement of one another to spiritual growth. They do this by studying and applying the principles which are the basis of the covenant with one another.

Today, it is suggested that we take steps to empower others to become their best selves as we do for ourselves.
