To know that we know what we know, and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge. ~ Confucius
A man who knows who he is, who is conscious of his wisdom, and who understands his value, is peaceful and powerful. He feels that nothing is missing, and that he already is perfect, whole and complete. Therefore, he experiences no anxiety.
As someone who happens to be an educator, I am conscious of my knowledge, wisdom and value. During my life, I have studied, observed, analyzed and reflected a lot, and I continue to do so. I know that there is a lot that I don’t know, but I am not worried about that. Knowledge is everywhere and abundant. In all fields, there are a great number of individuals and organizations doing great work. New thoughts and ideas, new authors, studies, books, workshops, films, and so on, are coming out all the time. And I too am adding to this big conversation through my work. The volume of information can be overwhelming, but the fact that so much knowledge is available does not trigger any anxiety in me; I celebrate and rejoice with this fact. I am conscious of who I am and what I have to offer, and I believe that pieces of knowledge will be made available to me by the Universe when I need them.
I came to a point in my life where I am convinced that I do my best work when I don’t try to teach, but when I help other individuals uncover the wisdom that resides within each one of them. My goal is to make them feel that nothing is missing, and that they already are perfect, whole and complete. I want them to reach that state of spirit where all anxiety vanishes, and where they touch the inner-knowing that empowers them to reveal the grandest version of themselves. My goal is to transport them to that state of mind where they feel peaceful and powerful.
We have to go back to the center of our beings and recognize that we are wise in our own unique ways, and that we have our unique contributions to give to the world.
We are powerful, centered, and calm.
We are respected bringers of peace, and our mere presence already helps others on their journeys to attain the same state of confidence and tranquility.
