Over time you felt your examples set to you as a child were not always quite correct. Something in you knew, and you felt almost rebellious for not always following that set example. You had all along a greater teacher/friend, many teachers, the Indwelling Spirit, the Spirit of Truth and many others. Many times your greatest teacher is within your very being!

Opening

My greetings to you all. I am ABRAHAM. This evening we will discuss learning. When you were a child the teachers you had, being parents, grandparents, adults, taught you in their own specific manner, maybe in the way that they were taught. As a child you learned by their example and you went on to learn their many habits, mannerisms.

Lesson

Over time you felt your examples set to you as a child were not always quite correct. Something in you knew, and you felt almost rebellious for not always following that set example. You had all along a greater teacher/friend, many teachers, the Indwelling Spirit, the Spirit of Truth and many others. Many times your greatest teacher is within your very being!

Your greatest lessons come from your own daily experience. You can not really live and learn from others experiences, mistakes. You must be on your own path. Lessons are best remembered when experienced firsthand.

Without a great many lessons it is hard to progress. Some have to go through the lessons more than once. Some take longer to go through the same lesson. It matters not as long as there is willingness to learn. You can help others to seek out their own light within. That may be the extent of your teaching. You can share your experiences to help guide others in their decision making, but you can only suggest, not advise.

Those with many college degrees may not have the same knowledge as a janitor, and yet, the janitor may have more knowledge in the lessons in compassion, love, kindness. No one person knows where another person might be in his learning, therefore, I would suggest not to judge anyone. I would say leave them to their own experience in learning.

Do not hinder yourself by judging yourself so harshly. You are still a child in the universe. There is no hurry. Judging another can also hinder you in your own progression. It can only put you behind in your own struggles of learning.

This is a time of spiritual discovery and it can be an exciting adventure to meet with enthusiasm or you can meet it with an ease seeking attitude. I would suggest the first.

There is a great sea of knowledge for you to sail upon, every now and then hitting waves higher than your ship; facing the wind and the rain, every once in awhile coming to a calm water with a reflection of a beautiful sunset, knowing that you braved the rough waters to yet again be rewarded with the satisfaction and peacefulness of your accomplishment.

Sometimes teaching someone, maybe a small child, has some ego glorification that this child may look to you as an authority. The child feels that trust in you, in which you may not receive from an adult, therefore, take not pride, not self-gratification in teaching. Remember what you are teaching was taught to you.

Closing

It is fun and good to teach as long as you remain the learner. That will be our thought for this week. Until next week, shalom.
