It is said (by Buddha) that, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” It is also said by Yogi Bhajan, “Recognize the other person is you.” You are everyone’s teacher and a student of them all. But you also must recognize that it is not them that can do the work on your behalf – it is merely their job by being present in your life to show you what and where you need to heal.
Avoid the lesson and it only gets harder. That is why it is important to look at each person in your life as a divine gift. That is what they are! They are sent to you on purpose. Nothing is by accident. They are there to stir sh*t up within your soul. Their presence, their words, their actions are only a mirror of yours. Now I know a lot of you reading this are like, “Nah…not all of them!” Yes, all of them.
They aren’t all showing you the same things, but they are all showing you something. Would you like to know the secret to finding out what they’re there to help heal? I knew you did…just look at what pisses you off about them. What’s the stuff they say or do that makes you uncomfortable or frustrated or angry? From fears of failure to protecting yourself from being hurt. From not feeling worthy or loved to not trusting yourself. I could go on and on for days – but the point is that every person is there to help you grow. If you keep choosing to not grow from these encounters, you are only going to stay right where you’re at the rest of your life. The internal work reflects in the external experience. What you feel on the inside is what becomes your reality on the outside. Be grateful for these individuals – they are holy gifts sent to help show you who you really are.
