Teaching: Prompt 13: Teach


If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind!

Khalil Gibran

Do you need to teach your lover how to love you just like you teach a child?

Do we teach a child to be kind, compassionate, and loving?

What is my role as a wife?a Lover? or a Mother?

I am not here to teach, I am here to nurture and let the child or the lover learn what they were destined to learn from me.

I do not teach, I offer.

I offer my wisdom and stories. My pain and my suffering. My struggles and my fears. My accomplishments and passions. My tears and laughter. My faith and beliefs. My mantra and values. My oomph an the lesson learned. My resilience,  my voice, my strength and weaknesses. I talk about my mistakes. I am not ashamed to tell you how many times I have failed. I  offer the world all of me, Let the world decide what I have taught them. 

They will learn what they like from me

Do not confuse teaching with education. The School does that. 

I educate the soul, the imagination, the spirit.

I do not want to create another ME.

I want a lover that is compatible with me. A lover who will discover me. A lover that will let me learn from him. I do not want a robot. I do not want to teach my lover how to love me.

Some lovers just don’t understand

So I let them be.

    This was so relatable! Although, I don’t know if we need to point out any differences in education and learning. Because, don’t you think learning is in both of these?

      True I agree Melbuddhi. What I was saying is that there are some teachings, where you actively teach concepts Objectivly ( school education and math and sciences), then there is a more abstract instinctive teaching that is more subjective. Open by interpretation by your audience. But yes, both are learning😉
