Life’s biggest lessons are the most gruelling. Once learned, we have no choice but to answer the call of the lesson: to teach what we’ve learned to others.
The student becomes the teacher becomes the student becomes the teacher in a lifelong process of exchange. The relationship becomes a mirror exercise. A yin yang. A give-and-take dynamic between two souls that raise each other up to a higher level of understanding: of self and each other.
Ever unfolding, new dimensions accessed, all become greater than self was before the learning.
The mentor and protégé are one.
