Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself ~ Chinese Proverb
Teachers* come in many forms and not necessarily in a school setting.
Your best teachers and the ones that will offer you the most challenges will be those who are closest to you – your mother, your father, siblings, children, partners, and friends. Remember, it is through your greatest challenges that your heart opens the widest.
Your teachers may be with you for a long time because your soul has asked to learn this knowledge and wisdom at a deep level, or they may be in your life for a fleeting moment. Each one comes to give you a gift that your soul wants to experience.
Many of your best teachers come to reflect, like a mirror, what you hold deep inside yourself that may be limiting you or causing you pain.
If you’re ready to view your past with loving awareness, you can find guidance to create a life of love and happiness. You’ll recognize that there are many teachers who have been there for you. The learning is there each day if you become aware and are ready to welcome it.
*Teacher Appreciation Week is a week long celebration in the United States observed the first full week in May. Want to give a shout out to my sister Mel who’s a 5th grade teacher. She is a shining star to us all.
