Deep peace of the quiet earth to you. 

True teachers know.

September 21, 2016

 

True teachers are guides, yes. But what about true students? Are they seekers? Certainly there's a time when we're forced (too strong a word?) to 'learn' in a structured environment, but what about after that? What about voluntary learning?

 

Those students are, really, teachers themselves. No teacher has met a self-propelled, self-motivating student and not learned something from them. It may not always be clear, it may not always be immediate, but the best teaching moments are reciprocal. The best teachers know they are forever students, forever seekers. 

 

In other words, they've got themselves some finely tuned engines...
