We are Students and Teachers to Each other.
Attitudinal Healing Principle #9.
We have left the summer and are in the fall season, it is back to school…but really, learning is a lifelong process for our mind-heart connection. As we begin to look at the “teachers” we have had, we become aware that synchronicity plays a very important part in this Attitudinal Healing Principle because teachers and students meet when they are ready to meet; there are no accidents. When we are ready, someone or something will appear, or happen, for us to learn…and every learning activity does not necessarily mean that we have learned it all really well yet, so we are given multiple and repeated chances to learn the lessons of love which guide us to the realization of our true essence!
Learning is a lifelong process for our mind-heart connection.
We learn in many different ways ~ from people, illnesses, accidents, gifts, events, animals, nature …anything. And those people (or events) that we have the highest or the lowest regard for (judgment about) are our greatest teachers. Actually, every encounter, no matter with whom or what, is a learning opportunity for us.
FOR GOOD (song from the play WICKED)
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you ….

I believe this is true. I have experienced and paid attention to what people and situations show me about me. What are they teaching us, anyway? Are we extending love or giving a call for help/love? They are bringing a quality of ourselves to our awareness, either positive or negative/ harmful, that we have temporarily forgotten was a part of us. Perhaps it is a loving or forgiving part; or maybe it is anger or resentment; or maybe it is some judgment or fear-based feeling. I think Judgement is a big attention getter! The “lesson” can reflect back to us a quality that our soul wants us to change in order to have more inner peace and more unconditional loving regard for ourselves and others. Or it can show us the loving essence that we are shining out into the world.
Many times the uncomfortable opportunity is a chance to forgive (ourselves and others) which is a wonderful chance for us to bring more inner peace to our lives and the lives of others. Forgiveness brings more connection and love into relationships…and is the result of letting more unconditional love into our life. (See AH Principle #6 on Forgiveness.)
What is the ultimate purpose of us looking at our “lessons”? What are we really showing others? It is always about our relationship to Love (to God).
When we can change our minds and change our lives to be closer to Love and to be more peaceful…to create miracles, this is truly joy! The fulfillment of Hope!
