Once A Teacher, Always A Student

teacher (1)

Life is constantly offering us opportunities for growth and opportunities for further learning. No matter which stage of evolution we are at, we will never stop learning.

Everybody that we meet and every situation that we encounter in our life can be a teacher, if we allow it to be, and if we open up to that opportunity of growth. 

Often do I see people that are on the spiritual path and in the new age circles being judgemental to someone who does not behave the way that would fit into their box. Someone who drinks alcohol, smokes, eats meat or eats in an unhealthy way, uses swear words etc. Right away, this person or situation would be seen as inferior, negative and “low vibrational”,  and therefore closed off in the future.  

Have you ever had the experience, that you would talk to someone and because they are smoking/drinking/whatever it is that you judge, you would not even want to open yourself  up to truly listen?

I had this experience before. The moment I caught myself in it I could let it go, open up, listen to the other and realize with great humility how much I can learn from people who we consider different from us. But, when one is not open-minded enough in receiving these jewels from life, they will never be able to acknowledge that.

How evolved can one be when the only things they do are judge, separate, and stick with one type of people? How much is one missing out on the little gifts that life continuously has to offer to us, when we close ourselves off to what is in front of us?

Just because someone might not be in the same vibration or might not be ready yet to give up some addictive patterns, that does not mean that he carries no wisdom and that he has not had any life experiences that helped him grow. We all walk the path of life in our own pace and we all absorb what we learn differently. Every person that we encounter in our life holds something unique for us. 

But when we judge or put people into our little mental boxes, the only thing that we experience is a big egoistic sense of superiority. This ultimately leads us nowhere. 

We have to remember that all is interwoven and connected. That life is one cosmic play that is created for us to find ourselves. Our job is to awaken and enjoy play. That means that everything we experience in life and everything that we encounter is and will always be part of us and part of our script. 

The moment we think we are better or more evolved or know better, is the moment we stop learning. This is the moment when we completely disconnect from what life is all about. Its the moment we allow our ego to win in its game of separation. 

Take every step in life with openness and with the knowledge that it is created for you. See every person as your equal. Remember that everyone carries the same essence of light that you do, no matter what.

Allow life to live through you and take you on a journey beyond what you could ever imagine. 

Let go and be free.
