To teach is to be involved in an act of Transcendence.
At this point, we have examined the role of Choice, Presence, Awareness and Ascendance within our experiences as teachers. Now, we come to final step on the Arc of Transcendence, which is Transcendence itself. In many ways, education is an act of Transcendence, as Transcendence does not only apply to the spiritual sense. Rather, Transcendence can be seen viewed in the sense of transforming in such a way to create one’s self anew. When we educate others, we are involved in the act of Transcendence, because learning in and of itself is an act of Transcendence. We expect learning to transform our students, as we are transformed by the experience of teaching.
