I've always said that I am a better dance teacher than I am dancer. I'm realizing this phrase applies to my spiritual journey as well. If I am indeed a spiritual succubus, and this describes me pretty well, people come into my life for a short but specific purpose.
I'm realizing that the further I travel, the further I journey, the quicker I learn the lessons that I need to. And though it's sad to experience souls coming and going so quickly, it's uniquely exhiliarating at the same time.
So what do I do if the title statement is true in this case as well as in dancing? The students who may pass thru my experiences may not be ready for me. It's a fact that I've tried to accept lately and it has helped me learn the lesson of "letting go" - NOT something I have EVER been good at.
Doesn't mean I have to like it. It doesn't mean that I am not going to try to hold onto something that I should let go of. It doesn't mean that I won't keep pushing the student to learn what they need to. Stubborn, for sure, but I honestly wish every soul could gain enough personal wisdom to be able to find their bliss. And, the Universe knows that I am a Soul that needs a good brick upside the head when I'm not getting the hint that I should just let it go! Sometimes I just don't learn very efficiently - hence, the statement, "I'm a better Teacher than Student".
So much happening at this juncture in my life.
SO much to learn but yet SO much more to teach.
But it can hurt when the student is not ready, for they will exit my life even if the human part of me wants them to stay.
