It’s time. Time to learn what I teach. To practice what I preach.
Time To Learn What I Teach
Self-care is best and I need to rest, but I don’t. I keep throwing myself into activity after activity, as if the world will stop spinning on it’s axis if I stopped!
Planning is something I share about – and I do try to get things in order, but I don’t always stay on course. Life does throw the occasional curve ball, and but on ordinary days, I sometimes follow my whims.
Reading is second nature, but do I really have to read so much? I often stay up nights finishing books. Is that really necessary? Wouldn’t more sleep be a better way of taking care of myself?
I talk about practicing forgiveness towards oneself. Not living in regret. But often regrets creep into my mind and I allow these unwelcome guests to stay longer than they should!
Comparison is the thief of joy, I repeat and yet, I catch myself comparing myself and berating myself for the poor quality of my writing, my lack of creativity, my lack of ambition….
Enough of teaching? No. I must teach myself!
“I wish to learn. Will you teach me?”From Anthony De Mello’s One Minute Wisdom
“I do not think that you know how to learn,” said the Master.
“Can you teach me how to learn?”
“Can you learn how to let me teach?”
To his bewildered disciples the Master later said: “Teaching only takes place when learning does. Learning only takes place when you teach something to yourself.”
