I homeschooled for 8 years.
As a teacher, I would, from time to time, come upon a concept that one of my children was struggling with.
When this would occur, I’d dive into their POV, in an attempt to see where they needed realignment. I’d shift the way I was explaining it. I did not issue penalties for getting it wrong. I wasn’t angry. Because it really wasn’t about me. Not at all.
It’s true also in life…
Some of us are teachers- When a person has given the wrong answer (and hate, contempt, and judgement is always the wrong answer) if the Teacher is concerned with learning, they keep explaining, keep reaching out, they delve into that student pulling them closer knowing there is a way to unlock the mind, the Truth, the Love, they are. The Teacher must be more concerned with learning than penalty.
In truth, you can’t be said to have taught unless the students have learned. The two are inextricably tied. If the student fails the Teacher has also failed.
Some are other students… Bullying and making fun of the student that isn’t “getting it”. Laughing and pointing out their deficits. Finding it just rewards when the bully gets bullied… Even if it means the whole school is set on fire in the process.
Some of us are that student that is slow to grok it. Angry at the world and ourselves. Fearful even of those who would be friends. Not knowing that the answer is wrong, we judge everyone else as harming us even when they’re not concerned about us at all, or worse yet trying to help.
Interestingly…Life from a Cosmic level (which is where I am speaking from) is not punitive. There is no judgment as we deem such things. Much like in homeschooling, you simply try, and try, and get it wrong and learn until you grok it.
In the end, we all pass with flying colors.
That can be hard to swallow I know… it’s okay, take your time and just sip it, darling.
I love your face.
