The teacher is only one step ahead

We love gurus. We love perceiving people as perfect, as having everything figured out, as being there. There where we all wish to be. And we think that if we just follow them, do what they do, copy them, then we’ll also be there. Sorry to break it to you, but there are no such people. We’re all both students and teachers at the same time. We all stumble and fall sometimes. We all make mistakes. We all fail. We all fall to our knees when the punches are too hard.

The teacher is only one step ahead. In other areas the teacher is the student. So look to other people for advice and inspiration and tools, but remember, that the greatest teacher you’ll ever have lives within.

No one else lives your life. No one else knows what you need. No one else is you. You do you. And right now, you are exactly where you need to be. Tomorrow you will be somewhere else.

With all my love,

Helena
