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.

  1. Yep, there are clues… many clues. You just have to learn how to perceive them. And good teachers help with that. A good teacher gives you a foundation of knowledge of how to find information and then use that information to accomplish something. A good teacher shows you how to think, not what to think.

  2. Like to believe this is true – but don’t think it is – as we are proving now – we wanted to become part of Europe im told – so we would never be at war again – as in ww1 and ww2 – but now we are throwing that thought out and worryingly for generations that follow – possibly exposing them to same craziness all over again – as their grandparents went thru.
