We are our own best teachers.

Most of us look outside ourselves for inspiration. We hunt for mentors, teachers, and gurus, folks whose experience we can learn from. And there are many worthy sources of inspiration among us.

In all this seeking, we may ignore the most pertinent source of learning for us—our own experience and inner knowing. The most relevant lessons are those we experience. The best understanding of what is right and helpful for us comes from inside us.

Today’s message encourages me to begin within. A regular contemplative practice provides me with the guidance and wisdom I might otherwise seek from outside sources. My interconnection with the divine is my best teacher.

Please reflect and share. How do you teach yourself?
