If you could look inside the Heart….

13 Feb

If you could look inside the Heart of any and every single human being, you would fall in love with them completely.
If you see the inside as it really Is and not as your mind projects it to be, you would be so purely in love with the whole thing.

Today, my students read in front of the classroom the stories they had written.  My favorite days of the semester are when they lead the class.  I observe myself as being the listener and recognize that often I have to soften my belly and release my projections to hear, really hear.

They humble me – they silence me.

Often, they apologize for what they perceive of as “not good.”  And I do not know how to show them what I see through my view, not good and bad, but beautiful – each one – bringing eyes, ears, lips, dialect, walk, courage, stories.

The Nicaraguan student’s first meeting with his wife to be, the deathbed scene with a father, the father’s tale of his 3 year old son saving fallen flowers from his rake,  near deaths, broken hearts, sexual identity discoveries, chance encounters…

It is not appropriate for the teacher to say she loves them – she holds her tongue – but not her heart.

      Sometimes when I forget to teach, or remember to listen – blissful – head banging frustrating at times too. Hope you are well my friend.

    All you need is love, Baby – yeah! There is nothing as sweet as being in love with people, not the romantic kind, but that sweet tenderness that breaks your heart because they are just so beautiful. I love that pic of Mooji too, he literally pours love from his eyes, May it be well with you, my friend. 🙂

    Thank you Marga — would love to sit in on one of your classes sometime, no matter whether you are “teaching” or ‘listening.” Good teachers are usually good students. Not always the other way around. But you spoke well when you reminded us that a teacher may hold her tongue but not her heart. Happy Heart Day to you, Alia
