The Seat of a Teacher



To take the seat of a teacher...


You don't need to be the most knowledgable in the world.


You don't need to be the most charismatic nor charming.


You don't need to be the youngest or the best-looking.


You don't need to be the one with all the answers or the one with the most sass.


To take the seat of a teacher...


You don't need to have a certain kind of social media platform.


You don't need to share everything that goes through your head.


You don't need to become a product of your dharma, or even have your dharma all figured out.


You don't need to pose to be noticed.


You don't need to create a "character" other than who you are.


You don't need to have the trendiest playlists.


You don't even need to look your brightest for every class.


To take the seat of a teacher you need to mature in all aspects of your life.


To take the seat of a teacher you need to spend more time looking inside yourself, not online.


To take the seat of a teacher you need to cultivate patience all year around, through all seasons.


You need to tend your garden diligently every day. Taking the weeds out of it and knowing that there are many factors that affect your harvest each day, each year.


To take the seat of a teacher you need to see beyond shapes, angles, and physical alignment and see people.


Real people with stories and burdens behind the shapes of their bodies.


To take the seat of a teacher you need to remind yourself that as teachers we don't fix people. We help them.


To take the seat of a teacher you need to be sad and broken inside, sometimes.


How else could you possibly relate to your students in a sincere way if you haven't experienced your own trials?


To take the seat of a teacher you need to make peace with the fact you can't possibly know everything. Life is too short to become a living encyclopedia.


To take the seat of a teacher you just need to have a pure desire to be an instrument of help for the greater good of your students and this planet, with no attachment to the outcome (which is out of your control anyway).


To take the seat of a teacher you need to know that there are no better teachers for you than your own students.


Ultimately, to take the seat of a teacher you just need to sit… Look at your students...


See them...


Let them see you...


And teach.
