"One thing about teaching, and for that matter, poetry, and writing, is that in my experience there are two very different processes. There is writing and teaching that comes from the intellect, from the knowledge we have studied and understood with the mind and therefore can share with others. And there is the knowledge that comes from the Universal Source. Each of these types of knowledge and teaching has there place but they are very different.
Knowledge from the intellect is learned and kept in the memory banks of the mind. Whereas knowledge from the Universal Source, the Beloved, the Akashic record, however you frame it - this knowledge exists outside of the individual mind and is accessed, not learned.
My experience of the intuitive Baba flow, and all of the spiritual guidance and knowledge that comes from Divine Source, is not of information I have learned or stored in my memory. It is in Being, in Baba, in the Universal Source, and becomes available by grace. It helps if the mind has some kind of reference point for the knowledge, so in that sense learned information is important in order to have language and concepts already in the mind. It allows that Divine source to be expressed clearly. Otherwise, without known concepts or language, it can get muddled by the mind.
But grace is a powerful force, and through the flow of grace and the whim of the Divine, so much comes to us - words, knowledge, vibrations, art, music, poetry. This type of material, flowing out of Divine grace and wisdom is a blessing to the world, whomever it flows through.
I do not consider myself a guru, I have some knowledge, that I have learned in my studies and that has been taught to me by my inner Guru. But the true spiritual knowledge comes from the one Self or God, the Guru of all beings, the divine Beloved, and not from any human intellect. That one is the source of all wisdom and truth. That one is the only true teacher. All we can do as human beings is surrender to that One and allow that grace to flow through us. This is the true source of real spiritual teachings. This One is the Beloved of all beings.
So there are times I teach in classes, on subjects I am knowledgeable about, and it is from information held in the mind. I enjoy teachings like this and I think this type of teaching has its value. But it is qualitatively different from the other knowledge that comes from the well of being of the Beloved, not from the mind. That is where real knowledge abides, as well as the great inspirations of music, art, and poetry.
