As the Buddhist Proverb says...."When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." I was reminded of just how important it is to remain teachable at a meeting the other night and from an unexpected teacher. God, allow me to remain humble and teachable enough to say, "I don't know!", aware enough to see the lesson and open-minded enough to accept the teacher who delivers it. Allow me to remain childlike in my thirst for Your wisdom. Amen.
Every person is a soul -- an inner spark that remains pure, no matter how damaged the outer shell (personality, experiences, etc.). Rather than judge damaged people, this knowledge moves me to feel sorrow for the conditions their spark is limited by. - Lorel Zar-Kessler
