Flying, Landing & Living

When I first started giving flight instruction, it seemed I couldn’t teach a student how to land an airplane; all I could do was help the student learn. I later decided I couldn’t teach a student how to fly, either; all I could do was help that student learn. When I read the Buddhist quote, “When the student is ready, the teacher shall appear,” I realized one must open up to allow knowledge to be absorbed. It’s like the saying, “Let go, let God.”  Now I’m finding this to be true as I meditate each day. If I enter a meditation session trying to force something to happen, nothing will. The plane won’t take off ‘til it’s ready.
