“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”
– Buddhist Proverb
Recently, while chatting with some other teacher and student-friends, this topic of conversation has come up several times. Everyone in your life is essentially, “a teacher” and it’s mind-blowing how those teachers appear in our life at the right moment.
Lessons can come in several forms: a friend, a student, a book, a yoga teacher, an experience or a circumstance.
Below are some timeless teachers that are always great to re-visit:
Try out a TranceDance class or turning up the volume in your living room and dance like no one’s watching
doing something spontaneous, that’s not on your to-do list
breath a little deeper in traffic
tell a joke, go to a comedy club, or watch a funny movie
get thee to a craft store for some paints and a blank canvas
look into someone’s eyes and listen with your heart
practice some Ashtanga Vinyasa or Bikram yoga, do a cleanse or simply get organized
face it head on and don’t look back
So, my question for you is, what “teachers” are appearing in your life?
And are you open to receive the lesson?
This week, I encourage you to show up and visit those teachers that will bring you some balance.
“Experience is the teacher of all things”
