When I look around me, I see teachers everywhere.
I see them in all things, in the human realm and beyond.
When I see a tree bending to the force of a fierce wind, I learn how to bend and go with the flow.
When I see a bird, carrying materials in its mouth to make a nest, dropping most of it in flight, I learn how to just keep moving.
I see people who have lost loved ones dear to them, open their hearts even wider and love more deeply than before those who are still here with them.
I see those who have lost everything in tragedy, only to give away what little they have left.
To be able to notice the lessons all around us everyday is true awareness. To be able to learn and apply these lessons is to be aligned with the Divine.
Blessings on the planet and every being on it.
