Master and Student

Do you feel like a perpetual student?  One who is always learning at the feet of others?

So many years of my life have been spent in the student role that it becomes ingrained and at what time does one become a master?

Is it a distinction that is conferred on you?  Does there come a time in your life where you say to yourself, now I am the master?

Let’s look at it another way, maybe you already have.  Have you ever learned something from someone younger than you?  If so, raise your hand.

Have you ever learned something from someone you thought was less smart or savvy than you?  If so, raise your hand.

Have you ever learned something from a child?  If so, raise your hand.

At each of the times where I said “raise your hand”, my hand was raised.  I am older and wiser than I have ever been in my life but I keep learning things from those who I would think would not know as much as me, yet I still learn from them.

I believe we are perpetual students and I believe that we are perpetual masters.

From the first time you came home from school and told your mom or dad something and they said we did not know that; it was the first time you were the master and they were the student.

Those times happen quite a lot for each of us.  We keep flipping back and forth between roles.  My point is that no one knows everything and therefore is only a master and not a student.

It is important to approach life and not say to yourself I am the master or I am the student but go forth and just find out what there is to learn and look for opportunities to teach.

Let’s learn from each other and help each other.  We will each take turns being master and student.

I would love to help you, Dear Writers, as you are helping me.
