|When you get older and you are ready, your ancestors will show up to guide you.”|
|–Joe Coyhis, STOCKBRIDGE-MUNSEE”When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” The adage is found in every culture and every language. As we ponder the passing of the years, we may think we know so much. As I get older, I only realize I know very little. Actively, I’ve sought teachers and mystically, they have come my way when I least expected it. Quietly, I’ve learned to sit and listen when these Teachers arrive.Our lives are rife with unmanifest energy. Sometimes this appears as a deep and profound restlessness. We’re not happy at work. Not happy at home. Not happy away from home. There seems to be an unpleasant stirring in our souls that we can’t identify, much less fix.
As soon as a Teacher appears, our Pure Potential becomes evident to us. The proper Teacher can help us see our reasons for being in the world and can help us hone in on our true purpose. A Teacher is a most valuable compass.
A Teacher is not always found in a school. A Teacher can be a neighbor, a clerk at the market, a homeless man lying on a bench, a priest, a nun, a Child.
Allow your Teachers to come to you today. Adopt an attitue of teachability. Recognize there are lessons to be learned at all times, in all places and in every facet of life.
