And we are back to the elementary school, where we were spoon fed with all the values and knowledge, reciting with the teacher and writing in our notebooks, with a pencil.
Gone are the days and here we are, where teachers talk just in the name of deadlines. The priorities have changed, to get the marks for fetching a good job!
That’s all, right?
But there’s more to life…
Think about it.
A teacher is the one who teaches us a thing or two, someone who imparts knowledge for the betterment of the society.
But why to limit that to a person alone? Why to remember that vigor of a person only?
Biggest teachers of all? I call it, Life. In fact, many of us do and agree!
Some call it a game, some call it a teacher. We’ll talk about it for a game sometime else, here it’s our best teacher in this one!
Some say the teacher is very harsh. It’s hard to decode what the teacher intends to say! Whereas, others tend to enjoy it’s saying! Yet, there are people who live being least bothered what this teacher has on offer!
No matter how the teacher behaves with you, his sayings have one or the other lesson hidden into the words, it’s just that we are careless as students.
He’s like a drama teacher, with innumerous props to act with. Yes, Props. These props are the emotions. Sometimes, it is Sorrow, followed by Joy. Someday it has dilemmas on offer. and we have to act accordingly! Just like Face Masks! Yet we get affected and see as if they become one with us…
It is just that we don’t seem to like it always.
Neither do we like the monotony of these emotions, yet we tend to get disturbed with the transitions Strange, isn’t it?
But there are seldom the moments where no lesson is involved. whether we like it or not, we are thrown upon by these emotions to test our metal, sometimes irrespective of our comfort zones, sometimes in a pampering and comforting manner.
Ever noticed how a fly tastes honey or something sweet and sticky? Yes, the fly keeps its wings in the air, drinks the honey and flies away. Now, had the fly got her wings wet into the honey, it would have got her wings spoiled forever and would have never been able to escape! it would have got trapped! Same is with emotions.
Consider those emotions and situations to be the honey. Till the time you keep your wings, or the real self away from the situation, easier will it be for you to get through the transition of situations by the course of time, without getting much affected and also having the best of experiences!
You won’t learn to fly, unless you are pushed out of the nest.
And when life does the same for your betterment, you overthink “why”, instead of looking for the apt action required. Bursting the bubbles does hurt, yet helps in viewing the things which were present always, yet hidden.
Now, you’ll ask, where i got this observation from? well, there could be many sources. this particular one was shown by my spiritual Guru, more like a tuition to be at par with the exams that follow.
But, I believe, if you’ve got the vision, hunger for extracting the best of learnings, Life is not that bad for a teacher.
Just seek for the reason of a particular situation being thrown at you and you are sure to come up with your response to it, to play it safe!
Moral of the abstract, you ask?
Life is the best teacher. We just have got to have that vision to neutralize things in the first place, seek for the reason behind the situations and that itself gives the key, to what life demands us to act like or learn from it. This helps in adapting accordingly and with much ease, leading one to strengthening the mindset and bearing whatever life throws upon one.
Hence, being a keen observer and lesson-hungry will set the mind free from worry and pain, supported by ingredients of optimism and Compassion and life will be much easier, to enjoy the stay…
None has escaped the class alive! And yet we choose not to accept the truth and live in pain.
Pain was just a symbol from life’s side, demanding change to be reflected in one’s character. It is just that, one chooses never to pay heed.
Rise above your demons, see the broader picture. The pieces of your fix lie in the riddle itself. You are being too anxious to look at it. Just pause, see and let it go.
And the credit for all this, yet again, goes to the great teacher, named, Life…
