When The Student Is Ready

Ready To Start

Post Written By Eugene Morgan

When the student is ready, the master appears. ~Buddhist Proverb

As long as we have a tug of war between of our internal parts, we will never be ready.  The tug of war is between the part that wants to learn new things and the other part that cautiously wants to stay put and is satisfied. Both parts have to meet somehow in the middle and make a compromise.  We can tell our learning part of ourselves to be patient and to take our time learning how to do things.  And then tell our cautious part of ourselves to take one step at one time or take small steps.  Both parts have to agree to do the same thing for us to move forward and how we should move forward. Once both parts agree, then we’re ready to allow life to teach us what we need to know about something. We need both parts for us to function adequately and be present for us to learn from the master of life.
