We are each both the teacher and the student
    #4350146 - 06/29/05 12:37 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Life is a lesson taught to itself.

As fragments of itself, we strive towards REunion with the entirity of the whole.

On our path, as individual subjective awarenesses, each of us are equally a teacher as we are a student. There are no absolutes for either, and the only way a person is seen as more of one than another is through a biased perceptual filter.

Discuss? :/

Ultimately, I believe you are right. It's all in how seperate you think things are.

I like the lines from Crowley: "I am seperated for the sake of love, for the chance of union." :mushroom2:

I only wish more self-proscribed "teachers" could realize this simple truth :rolleyes:

Yeah, it's sorta like...

The greatest student is one who thinks (s)he's a teacher.

And the greater teacher is one who thinks (s)he's a student.


Or maybe...

Those who seek only to learn, have the most to teach.

And those who seek only to teach, have the most to learn.  :cool:

(or something)

The most interesting people seem to be the most interested.

One of the most fundamental truths ever, in my opinion.
