Each of us have had many teachers, but most of us recognize only those we consider most significant in the way our lives have been affected, or enhanced. I have had teachers from within my family, in schools, through the elemental world, and also through most all the spiritual paths. My life would have been easier if I had been a better student with one teacher. Nevertheless, I am most humbled by them all, and have a deep appreciation for each and every lesson.
No one in my estimation starts out wanting to become a teacher, because it is an enormous responsibility on many levels, in ways beyond our limited understanding. Some of the ways I will share later, in a different blog. But many of those who have become our exalted teachers, are looked upon with deep respect and have impacted the world.
So I will share with you a few teachers from different traditions and with their own unique views. Why different traditions? Firstly it is important to emphasize their commonalities, and similar intentions toward healing where there is a need. Secondly, because this blog is for everyone.
Their so-called differences are mainly due to the variety of applications, for those populations, in concert with their mental capacity or cultural influences. This results in the most immediate and sometimes introductory benefit.
One Ancient Kemetic Teacher was spoken of previously. which I will not repeat here. Her impact is continuous, and her name is MAAT. Please review the second blog. (Khemet aka Egypt)
You can find many Buddhist teachers online through youtube and other places. In as much this is true, firstly I will still introduce you to one, who many are working closely with at this time. He is a Terton, a treasure discoverer. He is a tantric Nyingma Meditation Master located in Nepal mostly, and also has centers in India and Tibet/China. He has students throughout the world.
He gives a concise teaching below:

Is the earth alive? Do the elements speak? How can there be a healing for the planet?
I am one of many who share a profound respect for the Mother we all share in common, namely the Mother Earth. To her, I offer my deep thanks and appreciation.

What of the Poet who seeks to lift the hearts of the readers through his essays?
According to Ralph Waldo Emerson in his CHARACTER AND OTHER ESSAYS
"The poet is the sayer, the namer and represents beauty. He is a sovereign, and stands on the center. For the world is not painted or adorned, but is from the beginning beautiful; and God has not made some beautiful things, but Beauty is the creator of the universe. Therefore the poet is not any permissive potentate, but is emperor in his own right."

IN SUMMARY: Dancer of innate compassion within the spacious expanse of the nature of phenomena, you manifest as one who holds intrinsic awareness of profound meanings, endowed with a vast range of flawless and holy qualities. Glorious lama may your lotus feet stand firmly!
(These are qualities of a good teacher and are spoken in the Long Life prayer of HE Namkha Drimed Rinpoche, as written by the Ripa Ladrang Foundation)
