To Master, Teach

I teach because I am inspired to do so. I teach because I feel compelled to share what I've discovered with others. I teach to learn. I teach to serve. I teach because I want to understand. I teach to give back all that has been given to me. I teach because it makes sense. I teach to know my Self better.
We are all student and teacher at the same time. No matter how big or small, we all continuously learn from one another. At the end of each class I thank my student's for their time, but really I thank them for the exchange that has just taken place. I thank them for the opportunity to impart some of this great wisdom to them. I thank them for all that I learn while I am teaching.
We can choose to learn from everything around us; from the smallest ant to the largest oak. We can learn from the strangers that cut us off on our way to work or the friends we've known forever. We can learn from the good times, the bad times, the hard times, and the fun times.  There is an opportunity for growth in all situations. We can choose to be open to all that this great Universe has to share, connect to one another, and free ourselves from suffering. Or we can choose to close ourselves off from the world, disconnect, and suffer greatly.
When we teach, we learn and inspire.  As students, we also learn and inspire-whether we know it or not! It is in this exchange that we see the light inside each of us. That light...that Divine light, is the light that guides us. That light is the one true Guru that leads us out of darkness and into the light. That light is God and is a teacher to us all.
Om Bolo Sri Sat Guru Bhagavan KiI bow down to my teachers, my teacher's teachers, and the Divine Guru that resides within.
Who are your teachers? If you teach, why do you teach? Can you recall an experience when you were teaching, but became the student? How do you honor your teachers?
