I saw a documentary today with a man in it who had been searching for a guru or teacher since he was young. He had found one and then the story went on from there, but it made me think. Who is my teacher? I haven’t been searching (at least actively or consciously) since I was young.
When we are not searching then who fills the space of teacher for us?
Obviously the answer is different for everyone, but I think I have always allowed my associations (including my television viewing) to step in and fill the void of teacher in my life.
Only since I have been a stay at home mother (with a little extra time, a lack of colleagues and a recent blessing of a lack of interest in television other than documentaries) have I for the first time in my life been indirectly searching for a teacher because no one/ no thing has been here to fill the void by default.
Jesus, please guide me to people, books, documentaries and any others sources that will teach me what You want me to know. Please help me to prepare to be a sign post, a guide, a light in the night for others or maybe even a teacher if a student ever comes my way.
It’s Our Best Life! The choice is ours, we must choose our teachers wisely and not follow others or ideas blindly or by default.
