The Way…

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”  ~ William Arthur Ward; American inspirational writer and poet.


“A good teacher is a determined person.”  ~ Gilbert Highet; Scottish-American classicist, academic, writer, intellectual, critic and literary historian.


To guide somebody with sincerity and truth is to really love yourself and that other person, because in this process you are putting yourself in the shoes of another, you are walking with another, and experiencing an awakening of sorts with another, and this is a deeper connection.

But most people tend to judge other people and force them to see the truth, through heated arguments, through competitions of who is right and who is wrong, through displays of knowledge and all sorts of egotistical nonsense.

And therein lies the problem. Seeing the truth, choosing the truth and living it is not a desire you can introduce in others by force, but it is an experience which the other person at some point awakens to.

A person with good intentions and the heart for teaching others is a mere guide, a beacon which lights the way over the rough waters, a pointer of the truth; and so, one must not argue with others and think that the responsibility of making that other person see the truth is his, for this is the ego aggrandizing itself and distancing itself from the loving intention to help others.


The guidance and heartfelt desire to help someone develop himself is a strong character of wisdom and maturity; however, if you just desire to show off and display your understanding or knowledge unto others, then, you have been swallowed by the illusion of your own oversized ego.

 Think in terms of sharing the truth and your own experience with your example, perhaps, too, with kind and honest words; but do not see it as giving lessons or shaping the individual’s character or ways of thinking, because that is not your responsibility nor your mission in life.

Let it go, let the others be as they are; their own experiences carry the responsibility of shaping their characters, and not your massive ego.
