There are two ways to be a minister, to serve God and humanity—two fundamental divisions of service. One way is to serve people directly by ministering to their spiritual needs through teaching, healing, and the sacraments. The other way is through prayer, distance healing, and soul work. One way is performed in the world, while the other is performed on what we call the “other side.”
Of course, most of us who have been doing this work for a long time do both. We work with people from the outside in and from the inside out. That’s one way of putting it. And this is preferable, because it generates a lot of motive power. Things get done.
But not everyone likes to work this way. Some prefer the hands-on approach, while others are much more attuned to the inner planes of action. That’s where they feel most comfortable because they don’t like to draw attention to themselves. They tend to be private in their spiritual work. They don’t like to talk about it. But when they go within and pray for someone, miracles happen. People’s lives change.
In this age of scientific materialism, there’s not a lot of recognition for the work that these people do. In fact, they’re generally regarded as kooks, New Age, airy-fairy, and a whole host of derogatory names too numerous to mention. And this could be part of the reason why such people don’t like to talk about what they do. But mostly it’s because they don’t care what other people think about them. They know that their work is real and that it gets real results.
These are the people that us teacher types love the most, because they are the ones who keep the Earth balanced and the flow of the Holy Spirit intact. They are the Silent Workers. They go about their sacred tasks quietly, without fanfare, and without the need for recognition. Because they know that all of the recognition they need comes from God and the Host above. They like it that way.
Our purpose in The Mystical Christ Academy is to give these quiet power people a few extra tools that they can use in their work that will provide a little extra boost. We work with those who like the outer activity, too. They have their own sets of tools. But it’s the inner corps, those who do their work in the dead of night on the unseen planes of life that we’re especially interested in, because they make the outer work so much easier for the rest of us.
They’re the ones who make the aha’s possible—those bursts of light that happen in the consciousness of those who are just starting out on the spiritual path, or the feeling of peace and the sense that everything is going to be okay for those dying in a hospice or back alley somewhere in the world. They are the ones who keep the flow of God’s grace pouring in, the stuff that keeps the planet spinning on its axis and keeps the food showing up on our tables.
These people are all over the place. They’re in the mountains of Tibet, the coal mines of West Virginia, and the Starbucks on Market Street in San Francisco. They are the school teacher who prays for her students, the doctor who cares for the people in her care, the bus driver who silently blesses everyone who gets on his bus. They’re everywhere doing their inner work, staying under the radar, quietly going about their business, and changing the world.
