The Extraordinary Teacher

     "... an extraordinary teacher can teach not just the content of experience, but can point us back to our own knowing.   ...   The transmission from a spiritual teacher points us to the mystery of incarnation, to awaken from the small sense of self, to shift our identity from what is called 'the body of fear', the limited sense of ideas & thoughts we have about ourself, and to remember that we can manifest as wisdom, spaciousness, understanding, compassion, that we each have our own Buddha-nature, and that we can embody this in this life, and in this world."
