Learning

Our best teachers  start a fire inside us. The fire will last a life time if you tend to it.

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” – Henry Ford

Learning, unlike a degree,  is life long and makes life long.  The more you learn the more each minute is lived.  Each scene, each emotion, each relationship is enhanced through your leaning.

Learning keeps you young.  Tending to that fire of curiosity keeps our mind and spirit active.

Learning is the path to the gift of the Holy Spirit – Wisdom.  Wisdom is within-accessible to all of us; is a gift to us.  This spirit becomes more accessible if we humble ourselves and seek to learn.

The curiosity to learn a new skill, sport, discipline, hobby – keeps you alert, on on the right path and away from the stress and damage of pride and arrogance.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. – Matthew 11:29

The difference

For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost ~ Luke 19:10

C.S. Lewis says that one of the differences that brought him to Christianity, from Atheism, was the realization that God is Seeking us.

We do not need to go through the rituals and chants, the meditations and sacrifices, we simply need to be aware of Gods message in our daily lives. Do not seek but accept the invitation to be received.

The Message comes. It may be a flock of birds, a young pan handlers’ face, a field of grasses reflecting the morning sun, it comes when you do not seek but remain open.

Something stirs – it’s His voice. Listen, it is The Way.
