" No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge. The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness. If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind."
-Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931)
All of the knowledge and wisdom of the world is available to us at all times. We have only to tap into it to make use of it. The truth is that we don't need anyone to tell us anything! Butâ€¦ until we can fully make use of our gifts, we could use someone to show us the way. Life is hard enough trying to make it on our own. Thanks goodness that we have teachers to guide us and give us some direction.
