10,000+ feet above earth en route from Alaska to Maine; when an epiphany struck.
I am a big fan of the a-ha’s of life.
Perhaps I should not have been surprised that Rebecca Brandon came to mind as I was flying over the clouds… After all, she is now of the ethereal world.
But there I was reading and reflecting when I realized something important. …Soon after joining her handling class, Ms Brandon became hard on me. In earnest I tried to absorb what she was teaching, but it felt like she kept changing the rules. It seemed she was impossible to satisfy, and seldom did I ever get an attaboy.
But as painful as it was, I learned a lot.
I am answering you, not to answer but to simply destroy the questions. I am not a teacher. The teacher teaches you; the master does not teach you, he helps you unlearn.
-Book Of Wisdom OSHO commentary on Atisha’s work
Rebecca was a master.
Dear One, may you rest in peace. You knew exactly what you were doing so well.
