"I chose you long ago, and I have never gotten over you. I dance ahead of you, and I leave gifts along the way, remembrances of you so that you will remember Me."
"You have been granted earth. You have been granted the world. What I have given you is in your hands. Let your hands be hands of love. Let them exemplify My love. Be gentle with the earth and the world and the people who share it with you. Be gentle."
Learning is the point of learning. Education is not. Learning comes from inside. Education may be imposed. Learning arises from a sense of joy. It is joy to gain insights. Everyone loves it when a light goes on.
The intent of education may not go well with learning. No matter how well someone may score on a test, a high score does not mean that learning took place. Learning is what matters.
Learning is naturally joy. Teaching that leaves out the heart of the child is misplaced. Learning without joy is a hardship.
A Beautiful Story
The ways God can appear are limitless. Through other people is one of them. Here’s a true story:
A farmer at our local Farmer’s Market had a blanket laid out on the ground, filled with wonderful vegetables, some in baskets, some just in piles.
I held up a giant zucchini, and I asked him how much.
The man smiled and said, "It's by the hat. It's the hat method." I didn’t know what he was talking about.
He pointed to a big old farmer's type hat, filled with dollar bills, that sat on the edge of the blanket. “You just put in what feels right to you,” he said.
"Give me an idea," I said.
