Here is a lost section from the Manual for Teachers in A Course in Miracles:
The Teacher of God is nonviolent. He does not recognize conflict at all. In any circumstance in which his interests appear to separate from his brother’s, he quietly bridges the gap by remembering that his brother is his savior, and that salvation is their shared need and their ONLY need. By recognizing no other need but this one, the Teacher of God easily sets aside all perception of conflict. He withdraws his support of it, and thus it no longer exists.
Do you think that you or your brother can oppose the Love of your Father in Heaven? The Teacher of God knows that God Wills only Peace, and because He Wills it, it is so. What is true cannot be made false by denial. It can be forgotten but not destroyed, for what God creates is as eternal as He is. Knowing this, the Teacher of God gives attention only to Creation, accepting His Creator’s Will to create as He does. Peace is created together because the illusion of conflict is ended together and only in Peace can Love be wholly remembered.
Who can be violent who has no conflict because he has no enemy? Who goes to war with his Savior? Who would abandon his brother, knowing his brother as his own self? These are insane ideas, entertained only by a mind that chooses to believe in death over Life, illusion over Truth, and shadow over Light. The Teacher of God refuses to be host to these ideas because he knows that God gives ONLY Life, Truth and Light. Thus, he sees only with the Vision of Christ, and speaks only with the Voice for God, because he knows that this is the only way to remember the Love he and his brother both share and are. What else does a Heavenly Creator create BUT Peace? What other gift could He possibly offer?
The Teacher of God perceives no conflict simply because he has forgiven the mistaken belief from which all conflict seems to arise. By remembering his brother as his own self, the Teacher of God undoes the framework upon which all conflict rests. Without a foundation, and lacking any structural support, conflict simply disappears. It was never real. The Teacher of God knows that the choice is not between war and Peace, but between forgetting Peace and remembering Peace. And he knows as well that it is not his power of choice that establishes Peace as the condition of God’s Creation. He can but choose to be happy or not, and this choice IS to see his brother as the savior of his self.
In this way, the Teacher of God establishes through extension both the means and the foundation of Peace.
No suggestion is made – nor should one be inferred – that this is channeled material or that it belongs in the ACIM material proper, at least as scribed by Helen Schucman. It is just another writing project of mine, one of many, and should be evaluated only according to its helpfulness which of course will vary.
