Life Teachers Introduction

Have been thinking about teachers a lot lately. Mostly about those who teach life’s lessons just by living in a way that stands out from the rest of the crowd. So I’ve decided to make a series of posts about those who have had some kind of impact and whose lessons I still carry with me.

Some are relatives, friends, acquaintances, co-workers, educators and some are strangers. It’s unlikely you will have heard most of their names before. They aren’t famous and haven’t been on Oprah or written best-selling books. They were and are ordinary yet extraordinary people.

  1. Hooray, this. Indeed, we bump into bodhisattvas now and again in meatspace. It’s exciting when that happens. For one thing, it lets us know that amazing encounters aren’t just fictional idealizations or celebrities from far away or long ago.

  2. Thanks for the comment Tom. One of the first things I remember learning about Buddhism were the words “Look inside, you are Buddha.” and then “That person is me and I am them.” (paraphrased) So that does tend to make life kind of exciting on a daily basis.

    Though sometimes when the neighbors are fighting and throwing things at each other when I am trying to write it is a little difficult to remember.
