I asked my teacher
“Teach me about lessons in my life”
And my teacher replied
"Lessons will be shown to you often
but you will be taught only when you are ready to see the lesson.
You will learn the lesson
then the lesson will leave you.
Lessons will repeat until you see the learning
persistent in the offer of teaching, the lesson begs your attention
and you teaching begins because the teacher is heard.
Our lessons will echo what we need to do to find our center
and the stillness in within that center.
And the best breathing space is within that stillness.
We all have lessons
be patient in the learning of others.
Their teacher may not be heard yet
so sweep their path with your compassion.
Sometimes you are the teacher for others
but don’t force yourself into that title
that title belongs to the universe
but be ever present and available"
