Ever wish you’d gotten a better education?
Maybe you could still be the best-educated human being.
Think about these words from Hellen Keller (who, as you know, could not see, hear, or speak):
“The best-educated human being is the one who understands most about the life in which he [or she] is placed.”
That’s different way to think about “education” isn’t it? In this school…
Every problem or challenge you face: part of your education.
Every person you meet: part of your education (especially the one who gets on your nerves).
Every success and every failure: part of your education.
Every day: part of your education.
This is a school for no fools: it challenges us to seek wisdom in the here and now…to keep our eyes, ears, minds and hearts open each day.
According to Keller, life itself is my teacher and I am already sitting in the best classroom right where I am.
Which raises the question: What is life trying to teach me?
And what am I learning?
