Different teachers for different seekers

Spirit tells me that there have always been Spiritual teachers

Who cared enough for their community to risk their lives

To share the wisdom that had been shared with them.


There have always been people who needed to understand

What life was all about and what purpose socially accepted

Rules served in their particular time and place.


How can we understand rules whose purpose has not been

Explained to us? Or does not seem to make sense?


Spirit tells me that leaders have always feared being

Questioned abut the purpose of rules they impose on

Their followers. The very nature of rules requires that

They are not an option and must be obeyed.


The problem arises, claims Spirit, when these rules

No longer serve their original purpose, the best interest

Of the community and, instead, serve, or seem to serve

The personal interests of those who enforce the rules.


Then a new teacher rises up out of mass discontentment

With old ways of thinking, to share a new way of living that

Requires new rules.


The old game then begins again. Young people insist upon

Change while the elderly remember that they too were once

Young and had listened in their youth, and followed a then

New teacher and new leaders with new ideas of new rules.


So, what is the solution?


To what?


To sharing new ideas of how to live.


There are no new ideas of how to live.
