Book Excerpt: A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
The Course tells us of God's plan for the salvation of the world, called 'the plan of the teachers of God.' The plan calls for God's teachers to heal the world through the power of love. This teaching has very little to do with verbal communication, and everything to do with a quality of human energy. "To teach is to demonstrate." A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one. "They come from all over the world. They come from all religions and from no religion. They are the ones who have answered." The adage that "many are called but few are chosen" means that 'everyone is called, but few care to listen.' God's call is universal, going out to every mind in every moment. Not everyone, however, chooses to heed the call of his own heart. As all of us are only too aware, the loud and frantic voices of the outer world easily drown out the small still loving voice within.
