December 4 – Guru (Teacher)

What was the most important lesson you learned about yourself in 2011? Was it a sudden epiphany or a gradual realization?
 
I had to ponder on this one. I learned nothing and everything. I realized, above all, that I have faith in not knowing. I take refuge in doubt. I live in questions. I till the soil of fertile confusion. I explore paradox. I trust the sun and the moon and my breath and my heart. My gut is my guru. This moment is a wonderful moment. And life is beautiful.

    I learned that my breath is my guru. Everything I want and need to know is available within me. (Lao Tzu – so wise!)

    This year, I learned that I am my greatest teacher. The things that we beat ourselves up about the most hold the key to our greatest gifts.
