There is only one teacher.
What is that teacher?
~ Charlotte Joko Beck
there’s a teaching in Buddhism that we can approach life in a way that everything is workable. we can engage our life in a way that whatever we are experiencing can be worked with as a way to go deeper, to learn, to let go, to wake up.
what we are experiencing can actually be the fertilizer for our growth, for our steadying of mind and our opening of heart. others like Ram Dass and Richard Rohr have called this “grist for the mill.”
what life gives us can be used for our benefit and the benefit of others. life itself gives us the material to wake up to our life.
