Life’s Classroom

by Chrissy, NSW, Australia

… A little flashback to when I first stepped into a room at Universal Medicine… a little awkward in myself, shoulders rounded, eyes averting a confident gaze, a little defensive even… Sidney Poitier’s students in “To Sir, With Love” for some reason come to mind…

… And now, and slowly over time and still ongoing, as a result of what I have chosen and allowed for myself… I am in a Universal Classroom with “To Serge, With Love” (I know, can’t help myself… gotta be playful)…

… And what a classroom this is…

  • Where the students enter freely and the energy seems strangely familiar,
  • Where the teachers stand amongst us, not before us,
  • Where the subject matter is brought by us and includes us all,
  • Where the format is often playful, and never divisive,
  • Where there is always an invitation to share and an opportunity to reflect, if we so choose,
  • Where the only material we bring is the ‘baggage’ we all come attached to, and carry with us,
  • Where one voice is heard by many hearts,
  • Where some of us bring truth and some of us bring love, but we all leave having had the opportunity to be touched by both,
  • Where our only study is to simply listen to our inner heart,
  • Where the only homework we ever get is to take THAT which I ALREADY know I am and be that reflection in life’s big classroom… a classroom that only divides us if we separate from self…

  1. What a gorgeous reminder that we are all responsible for our life and learnings:
    ‘Where the only homework we ever get is to take THAT which I ALREADY know I am and be that reflection in life’s big classroom… a classroom that only divides us if we separate from self’
    That once we separate – we are the only ones who make a division.

  2. It’s gorgeous to be a student of oneself. We are our greatest and most humble teacher – it is up to us if we choose to listen to the inner wisdom of our bodies and let go of what gets in the way of accepting that communication.

  3. So beautifully expressed thank you “Where the only homework we ever get is to take THAT which I ALREADY know I am and be that reflection in life’s big classroom… a classroom that only divides us if we separate from self…” I am a forever student.

  4. So simply expressed. What I love about the teachings of Universal Medicine is that they are not rules or guidelines, but simply tools to access the wisdom that we all equally have inside of us. There’s no reliance on these teachings to access this wisdom, since we can all access it through we live, but they can help us identify what gets in the way, and get to it more easily.

  5. Yep, that sums it up and remembering that this is how we learn, through the grace of love and truth presented by our fellow brothers and sisters.

  6. The classroom that you describe here is the real deal, one where evolution is the subject and truth and love its methodology.

  7. One of the things I notice about true teachers is that they always have a teacher themselves and never act alone. Hence a true teacher never proposes that he or she is better than anyone else for they too have another or others who are supporting them in what they need to learn…no different to everyone else.

  8. This is all so true! Thanks for expressing it so I can gain a deeper appreciation and live this in my life more consciously because these classrooms are there all around us if we choose to live this way.
