Message comment from “amen”

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet : On Teaching

Then said a teacher, "Speak to us of Teaching."

And he said:

No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of our knowledge.

The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness.

If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.
.......................................................................

Response ::

The Teacher who offers faith alone, fails to teach.
The Teacher who offers knowledge, enables also, Understanding.
In this there is Love.

The threshold of our own mind is bound by the limitations of Karma, Conditioning and Prejudice acquired on the journey.
The wise man paints the Glory of the House of Wisdom - with Bells-on,
that we may recognize the limitations we have bound ourselves to.

In the Love of Light and Understanding
Blessings
