‘As we’re working together, I don’t have to be perfect or wiser or anything like that. I can be just a good friend, whatever a person needs. If I’m doing my practice correctly, my life responds. It’s not really me. It’s more that. The teachings of the Buddha, the dharma, are able to flow through my life and connect with somebody else’s life.’ (from Lion’s Roar)
This is from a discussion about how teachers train to be teachers, and train others, that I found particularly inspiring at the beginning of the year.
