What Would You Do If You Knew You Couldn't Fail?

The 5th Characteristic of God’s Teachers: Joy. You Can’t Get There through Fear

5th characteristic of God's teachers

The Manual for Teachers tells us, “Joy is the inevitable result of gentleness. Gentleness mean that fear is now impossible, and what could come to interfere with joy?”  Joy is always available, but if we are entrenched in fear thoughts, it’s impossible to get to it.  Fear blocks it.  Fear makes it inaccessible.

A Course in Miracles, Manual for Teachers, the 3rd and 4th characteristics
