The MOON – 4/18/15:
We would like to speak with you about your teachers. How many possible teachers may one have in a lifetime? How do you choose which to follow and which to reject? Is it possible that you, the collective you, are missing out on the most obvious and profound teacher of all? Do you also then have the same ability to either accept or reject one’s own teachings?
All lessons have the ability to mold one’s Higher Self. What one needs to explore is whether those lessons are hard won or not. To get to where you want to go may have many trails. The one that is hard won is littered with thorns. Just as important and equally profound, what are you teaching others that look to you for their lessons?
Questions to Ponder:
Read the above again and with each question The MOON asks, take the time to answer it. Did you figure out “who” the most obvious and profound teacher of all is?
Now, can you remember a time when you had learned a specific lesson through pain and on the other hand, learned a lesson through a smoother process? Can you take what you learned from these two opposite ways of learning lessons and possibly choose a new trail that is less painful and contains less thorns? Realize that your choices, which leads to your actions and behaviors are your next teachers for you and for others, as others will learn through your example.
I also believe, Marion, that “they” want to point out that we can choose how we learn our lessons – either through pain “hard won with thorns” or through another “path” with less or no thorns. They remind us that either way we go, whether it’s with thorns or without thorns, there are many trails to get there and all paths lead us there. Why not choose the path without thorns? However, every path and person along the way are our teachers, including ourselves!
Yes very true, and I believe that when we become attuned to those working closely with us, choosing the best path becomes much easier. At times though, because we don’t see the bigger picture it can be hard to see the end result of that path being the correct route to take, trust is always the way but sometimes hard to master.
I feel you “hit the nail on the head!” It always comes down to TRUST. Trusting others–who are our teachers, trusting the teachings/lessons and trusting ourselves to discern…
I believe we can be our own teacher, Moon.That is if we chose to listen to the voice with in. I guess as I say with in could also mean spiritually because our gut feeling is linked with us through Clairsentience. As you say the hard path is lined with thorns but through these hard times we learn most in life. Those souls that seem to suffer the most and have little in life have a much richer experience than some of us that don’t have as many worries and have what some would class as luxuries. It is often our experience in life that enriches and teaches us the most.
