I believe Life gives people clues. I believe these clues—gentle at first, but more forceful as time progresses—urge people to stop mindlessly repeating what others have said/done, and to iterate timeless truths in a manner which is both eternal and novel. And isn’t that the goal of a legit teacher? Not to have their students dogmatically bleat the same combinations of words, but to have them internalize a teaching so they can express it through their unique perspectives. This delivers vitality into whatever those “students” say, for those “students” have gone beyond the teacher/student paradigm, and it is not just words they deliver, but resonance.
