I’ve had the opportunity to hang out with some of the world’s greatest spiritual teachers and do you know what they have in common? They’re all human. They all make mistakes, they fail, struggling with their walk at times. Just like you and I. Just like all of us.
One of the primary reasons many of these teachers have such a keen and wonderful ability to teach is because they’ve visited the darkness then transcended. Taking their perceived failures as opportunities to learn and remember the depth of who they truly are. Rising like a phoenix.
This ability to transform being an amazing trait we all have when we allow nature to course through our veins. Some of us reach this connected space with a breakdown and breakthrough, but it need not always follow this path. This transcendence can also be achieved with incremental steps. Tiny breakdown and breakthroughs via daily practice. Something I hope to help accomplish with these emails.
To further facilitate this process I feel compelled to list the favourite teachings of people that have helped me on my path and will be sharing more in the coming weeks. Until then, I’d love to hear your story. What teachers and experiences have helped you most on your journey? What are the lessons and takeaways that you think might be able to help others? I’d love to share some of these stories with our community.
Let’s rise further in a collective tide of understanding.
