Topic: A Learner's Outlook
Group: Woods Cross TeaM
I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. How wonderful it is to see you working and fellowshipping in alignment with your spiritual lessons. Your enthusiasm for the success of the upcoming conference is contagious. We on Michael's staff also have our agenda scheduled and are prepared to create as much spiritual upliftment as you allow. These life lessons that you live have given you the tools to be flexible and accepting in combination with dedication and a commitment to truth. Well done.
The Teaching Mission has created quite the sweeping changes, and we are all in amazement at the growth and in such gratitude to the Caretaker of caretakers. When you think back to your greatest lessons learned you have seen they have come through conflict. You can get to see all sides of a person during conflicts. How easy it is as a mortal to plunge into the emotional during times of upset, leaving out rationality and incoming divine information.
TR: Hold on a minute. Sorry about this. I couldn't hear him and then I could hear somebody else. Now it sounds like he is talking to somebody else.
ABRAHAM: Correct. I am speaking with your friend and brother, EMULAN, who will address you.
Greetings, friends. I am so happy to be among you and be counted as a participant in this Mission. I had to learn through experience to reach where I am today. I was fortunate to have such wonderful mentors. All my relationships helped me to learn and grow as a person. You each have something to learn from one another. When one is always trying to be the teacher the learning is limited.
In having a learners' outlook you are open to those divine circuits that feed you incoming spiritual information. Your outlook is always fresh and new. The possibilities are endless. There is a great deal of satisfaction in being the teacher because most students tend to look up to teachers. Students who rely mostly upon their teachers words also can limit their own incoming information.
The greatest teacher is one who is open to being shown that they can be wrong. A good teacher has as much respect for the student as the student has for the teacher. A good teacher sets not himself up above the students, but works side-by-side in a co-creative effort to generate learning. The planet as a whole is beginning to shift in thinking, discovering that no one human has all the answers or can be set apart as special.
No teachers in my realm are set apart, different or above any of their students. I have learned a great deal from hearing others experience and the lessons learned therefrom. I have also learned from sharing and receiving feedback from friends, associates and mentors. I am so much grateful to Abraham because he treats me like I have a great deal to teach him. He is an experienced and a wonderful teacher, but sits with me, side-by-side and honors me as an equal. He greets me with enthusiasm--as if I am an important part of his life. He looks at me with the eyes of a father, opening up my own perception to my full potential. All of the wonderful teachers I have known have made me feel I was acceptable as I am and showed me a broadened horizon of where I am going.
A small child can truly relate with an adult who bends down on one knee to eye level and makes attempts to delve into their knowledge. Small children love to talk about themselves. They feel the adults interest says that they are important and on equal levels as far as a personal being.
Our Master also honored His fellows while in the flesh by asking them questions, taking an interest in their lives, making them feel they are an important participant in the world and what they do really matters. He did not squelch His fellows vision but sought to broaden them with a divine logic.
The Master loved to learn about people and was truly fascinated in how they became to be what they are. In getting others to talk the Master knew that divine connections were being made, that many individuals were discovering personal stumbling blocks and actually working through them. The Master could see where ego may have created problems in His fellows lives and would have tactfully redirect them to new insights. He was not forcing His own knowledge, but as the learner His connection to divine communication was flawless and He had access to vast solutions and new possibilities, yes.
I thank you for having me this evening. I return you to ABRAHAM. Farewell. I thank you, Emulan, my brother. Be also assured I have also received a great deal from you and your experience, your techniques of teaching, yes. I also count myself truly blessed to know you, my brother.
Abraham: This week, my friends, practice personal interaction with your fellows. Recognize the difference in being a learner and a student. What is the difference between a student and a follower? Practice being a director of new potential in your fellows. Strengthen your connection with Michael, and when you come up against those individuals who are deeply negative you will be prepared to stay strong, stay inspired and keep inspiring. Know that my love goes with you. Until next time, shalom.
