08/06 for today

“when the student is ready, the teacher appears.”

the teacher or teachers, because i’ve had many, are always there. it’s just i actually see them when i open my eyes. so when i put away my misplaced pride and self absorbed ego i have time to pay attention to something else. it’s pretty simple really. self-will run riot is a destructive force in my life, i never learned the art of self-control… self discipline. it’s when i seek a better way – a way other than my own, which is limited by compulsions and obsessions, poor judgement and pretty sad impulse control – that i actually find it. scratch that… i don’t find it, that smacks too much of stumbling accidentally, like “EUREKA! i’ve found it!”. that fact, for me is, if i’m open and willing to be teachable, i get set on the better path – plucked up off the road of self-imposed destruction and placed where i need to be, where i am naturally inclined to be. so it’s in these circumstances, when i’m thinking more clearly and acting on life in a positive manner, that a natural progress forward takes place. there can be no failure here, no perfection either, just a flow forward, away from ruin and toward restoration.

for today, i’m grateful for the willingness to seek a will and a way other than my own soul-sick one. for today, my eyes are open to the teachers in my life and happy for the lessons and opportunities to practice the art of better living.
