Life – The Teacher

Executive Summary about The Teacher by Clyde Dennis

The Teachers

The Teachers

You’ve probably heard the phrase “repetition is the mother of learning” well apparently it’s also the mother of teaching. Often it seems, Life – The Teacher uses the tool of repetition to imprint into our brains the lessons it’s needing to impart to us. It has become clear to me that life gives the same tests over, and over and over again until we demonstrate that we’ve learned the lesson by passing the test.

This teacher seems more than happy to show us again and again why it may be a bad idea to take a particular action, or choose one direction over another. The good news here is that it works both ways. Like any good teacher choose properly and life smiles. Choose improperly and life corrects.

Life is there to administer and grade the tests.

Once you pass the test however, Life records your grade and moves on to the next lesson. But don’t completely discard the lesson you’ve just learned as over because it’s not. The lessons and tests we’ve passed usually return in the form of pop quiz’s. Out of the blue one day an opportunity to display this lesson learned will pop up and you’ll have to conquer it all over again.

If you fail or don’t score high enough on this little pop quiz you’ll have to deal with it more and more often until you pass the test again.The trick is to score high marks on the lessons because the higher the score the less often life throws it at you. Show a mastery of it, and it is presented as a test with much less frequency.

What lesson do you feel life is beating you up with?

Show life (and yourself) that you get it. Do whatever you need to do to display that you’ve mastered this particular lesson. Life will reciprocate by giving you a break from it. But remember, Life is smart. You can’t trick it. The higher degree to which you display a mastery of the lesson, the less frequently life will re-present it to you.

Anyway, that’s my take. What’s yours?

Live some. Love some. Learn some. Everyday.
