When the Student is Ready…

Life has so many crossroads it seems we are always in need of someone to teach us or there is some life lesson to be learned. Life in itself is one huge lesson that we mere mortals must adapt ourselves to in order to flourish.   

Flourish is an interesting choice of words, in life it seems some of us learn life’s game plan while others fail to thrive. Where are the teachers or masters for those who fail to thrive; are those people not listening to heart beat of life? Or is it the age old question “why do bad things happen to good people?”        

I guess I am being a bit cynical lately because I have run into far too many people who are not ready to meet life head on. They are constantly beating their heads against a brick wall and wondering why it hurts.  I have encountered perfectly nice people who do not realize they are not living.

Living means learning and growing and accepting the teachers in our lives in whatever manner he/she or it appears. Some people are so busy knowing everything that they don’t take time to listen to what life is trying to teach.

Let us not forget at one time or another we are all students of life and we must slow down to listen to what life has to teach us. If we do not awaken that within us that seeks truth we miss out on so many life’s lessons. Remember, “When the student is ready the master appears” (Lao Tzu).
