Rarely do we ever ponder on what is the job of a teacher? A person that teaches us Mathematics and Literature? A person that inspires us with poetry? A person that introduces us to worlds outside of our own? But what about teachers that are patient and loving; those that provide comfort and healing to humanity? Jesus was a teacher. So was Siddhartha. Mohammed, Moses, Confucius, Gandhi, to name a few. These prophets or teachers taught mankind how to live peacefully with one another; about humility, compassion, and most important of love. They reminded us to have faith and to be brave in the adventure of life.
We don’t need to be Regan in ‘The Exorcist’ to prove that we are all possessed by human diseases of the mind. Jealousy, envy, hate, dis-respect; and the list of hurtful things we do to our brothers and sisters; this is why we must hold fast to the teachings of the prophets, who lived by example.
Don’t listen to the negativity; don’t listen to the ones that hate; listen to the voice of truth; the one that will always bring you to peace, comfort, and joy! J
