Choosing Our Teacher

Bonjour Friends

To introduce this new message, I'd like to invite you to take a trip down memory lane with me.

Back to my first year in middle school, like most 'kids' this age, I was taught all academic subjects by more than one teacher.

Now, although, they all  had different personalities, I soon realized that they could be divided into two distinct categories.

The First Category were: "The Warm Ones".
These teachers were always boosting your confidence. Praising you on your successes and encouraging you to do better after your 'falls'. They had certainty that with effort, you will overcome your challenges to manifest your unique potential.

The Second Category were:"The Cold Ones".
These teachers weren't emotionally accessible and didn't make you feel any special. Their teaching methods were direct and strict.

In everyday life, we're all exposed to these two teachers also known as: 'Mercy' & 'Judgment'.

And, somehow, if we like it or not, both have a purpose in the big scheme of things.

For me, this understanding became even more crystal clear when I became a mom.

Parenthood makes you certainly realized that when you truly care for someone, 'Tough love' as it is usually called, might be necessary in order to protect and guide those precious souls, so they can grow and reach their higher self /purpose.

Though it seems that some people handle 'judgment' better than some others (to a certain extend of course!), I don't think anyone 'likes it'.

Therefore, here are the three most significant reminders, we should all use to limit learning through "Professor Judgment' and purposely choose 'Mercy' as our beloved teacher.

1. Change when 'Mercy' is telling you so.
Like an alarm clock, Nudges for change will be sent regularly. Nonetheless, they will get stronger and louder as time passes by.

2. Show more 'Mercy'.
 "Life is like a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it" And, assuredly, the world can handle it!

3. Make 'The Light of Mercy', your silent partner.
Sing, pray, beg...Days and Nights for 'It' to hold your hand and help you and the world transform in 'Mercy'.

Love & Light Always, Ilanit.
