The duckling was both tired and exhilarated from her struggle. Breaking through the shell had taken hours and as her eyes adjusted to the sunlight, the youngster wondered, what to do next?
Gazing about, the duckling saw her mother seated nearby observing. With a loving twinkle in her eye, she spoke. “Do not worry. I am here to guide and I will teach you what you need to know.”
For the spiritual traveler, the teacher is the guide who instructs in the next phase of life -spiritual learning. Until this point, breaking free of the shell of patterned thought, everything the traveler needed was inborn and readily available. It was part of biological hardwiring and social learning and conditioning. Now entering a larger world, there were important things to know about and recognize. Because the teacher has traveled this path, learning will be directed as in the case of the mother duck, by an expert.
The ducklings in the nest are taught everything they need.
They are a completed species.
Humanity is still evolving spiritually
Although some have reached completion.
These completed souls help others make the journey.
Using tools and faculties termed extraordinary.
Often, the instruction these teachers offer
Is denied or over looked.
Such is the condition of human kind.
