Why do you teach?

I do not consider myself a teacher, but a servant. As a human being I surrender all of “me” to an unknown purpose that manifests itself spontaneously and for the highest good. That highest good is the Source in all things, times, and places which becomes you through intense devotion to it. Therefore, I say embody your ego and offer it as a sacrifice each and every moment until you’re so empty that grace strikes in the eleventh hour and becomes the primary motivator of every action. I do what I do because my service is not to others or the “me” but I serve the Lord of All, whom cuts me down, crushes me under the weight of eternity and then re-forms me in its grace.
