Anyone who wishes, desires and esteems to spread good teachings, teaching of the spirit, teaching of the life, etc. must be very careful in their approach and manner. Often, with important subjects or works that are close to the heart, there can erupt personal biases, personification, and the like which clouds neutral, logical and objective fact and exhaustive factual explanations. This is even further amplified when the human being plays favorites with their knowledge or where they acquired their knowledge from. A sense of snobby behavior can come about and promote a slanderous, looking down tone or loveless behavior. Of course it is necessary from time to time to use a harsh word or to call things exactly as they are, especially if they truly are stupid, illogical, evil, dumb, unnatural, etc. but by no means is this an excuse to spread, write, or teach hateful, overly-critical, over-positive or over-negative works or throw gasoline on the fire. Naturally this is not an easy task, especially in the beginning, and mistakes will occur for any teacher, wise one, prophet, proclaimer, helper and so forth on such a path.
However, there is a very important and distinct difference which must be made between actual teaching, proclaiming, prophethood and the like versus using knowledge as weapons of war. These lines often become blurred, and despite arriving at good, sound, truthful, universally-creational knowledge, it can, based on the perception of the individual, be used for terrible degenerative pursuits which may or may not be identified until much later where a great deal of damage is already done. The fact is that the spreading and the teaching of the truth is an enormously difficult task that requires a great deal of patience, education, knowledge, wisdom, neutrality, objectivity, logic, compassion, love, care and feelings for others, the state of humanity, the world, fauna and flora, and so forth.
It is also completely unnecessary that one's teaching must use complicated words or high terms and terminologies although at times it is impossible to avoid this when it comes to concise explanations. The teacher must truly be able to not only teach from the perspective of how much they feel or are passionate about a subject matter, regardless of whatever that matter may be which can include but isn't limited to - social and cultural issues, population control, religions, politics, studies of consciousness and spirit, study of Creation and its natural laws and directives, etc., rather, the teacher must be able to supply exhaustive factual and logic information that in no wise corresponds to a persuasion, a convincing, a turning of the tide and so forth.
The knowledge that the teacher gives must thus be factual and neutral, grounded on true fact and true basis, adherent to real-reality which is often mistaken for social and societal constructs of a narrow-minded view of reality. Indeed, even this word reality has lost much of its power and meaning because it has been forced into a boxed perspective that more ties into societally accepted ideas of normality and reality. Well, societies and cultures can be quite wrong on their view and outlooks on life, especially if this is influenced by biases such as racism, sexism, religious preferences, nationalism, globalism, likes, dislikes, passions, ethos, material-intellectual-morality, relative mass-consciousness and spiritual evolution etc.
It is often the case, especially when first finding good and reliable information and doctrines such as the teaching of the truth, the teaching of life, the teaching of spirit, that, one can become enraged, angry, bitter, spiteful, hateful and uses this information for attacking, slandering, bringing down and breaking down, goes on anti-religious rampages, wishes to destroy all law and order and the like. Such thinking is extremely dangerous and while there may indeed be times to shake up or promote controversial ideas, this remains the exception rather than the rule. The primary goal of any true teaching, of any true prophethood or proclaimers etc. must first and foremost be to provide neutral, factual, well-sounded, experienced, concise, detailed, universally-understandable (even if the terms and words may vary in other teachings and doctrines), Creationally-lawful, information that does not promote or elevate the teacher and their personal preferences above real-reality and the real truth.
Of course it is impossible that any human is without error, even the wisest and greatest of teachers and prophets, which is why there may be times where the information may not be perfect, can be improved, lacking additional explanations and so on and so forth. Nevertheless, the goal of any teaching can never be so personified that it clouds the absolutely necessary facts and logic. However, this too can be greatly misunderstood where some aspiring teachers and proclaimers, sages and wise ones, may go too extreme on the cold-hard-logic and neglect the necessity of building bridges to those who must be taught. Simply because the teacher may have arrived at a certain level of advancement does not mean the students have, and thus, a necessary modesty must come about in order to properly deliver the right teaching in terms that is understandable and translatable to those who must be taught.
This takes quite the extreme turn when human beings of relatively high intelligences can use these gifts unwisely. Such human beings may fill their heads on their subject matters to such a strong and packed degree that this expertise actually blinds them from being an adequate teacher. They lose relation and respect to the common man, the weaker, the less intelligent, the less evolved and so forth, and look down on them. They expect those who have not done their research to suddenly be equally as knowing or wise which is simply impossible if others do not care or desire to study the same subjects as the teachers.
Thus, it is of enormous importance that any teacher must act from a place of compassion, love, respect, modesty, neutrality, balance, patience, conciseness, knowledge and wisdom, regardless of how evolved, knowledgeable or wise they may be. Being knowledgeable alone is not enough to be a teacher nor is eagerness. Being a teacher requires a tremendous amount of self-reflection and thoughts for others because it is the balance point that should work to connect and bring about the upliftment of humanity, not the destruction. This remains a very arduous process that naturally has its own mistakes, setbacks and challenges, depending on the individual's range of teaching. Again, one must really ask themselves why they wish to teach others, and if the teaching first and foremost cannot be applied to themselves or there is nothing for them to personally gain from their teaching or provide realistic solutions instead of only pointing fingers, then such a teaching is useless and hypocritical.
Thus, any true teaching, any true doctrine which adheres to real-reality and the natural workings of reality must first and foremost be able to move and teach the teacher. The teacher must be able to come to this neutrality where their work firstly teaches them and they can gain benefit from it, otherwise their product truly has no sturdy ground and is easily blown away like a leaf in the wind. Teaching is a form of learning, thus the teacher, the prophet, the proclaimer, the wise one etc. is truly a student. As the old sayings go, "a great teacher is a great student" and this applies strongly to any human being, male or female, color or colored, alien or terrestrial alike who wishes to teach.
If the teacher is able to look back at their work, despite any mistakes or possible corrections, improvements to make etc., and is able to still learn something new from their work, then truly, he/she is on the right path. Such teachings remain timeless despite the necessary changes which may occur in different times so that they are understandable relative to the era they are transitioned in.
