Rula Mazigi Shin on the mind, and on being a teacher and/or a student; (reference to Eckhart Tolle).
"...Truth/WHAT IS alone can be the teacher. No one, however enlightened, can "teach" another how to SEE. One has to SEE for one's self, otherwise it's just another belief.
That's why Tolle's real message is his very presence. His words are just a guide to remind us to BE. But as for 'how', one can't transmit that kind of knowledge to another. No concept can reveal what lies outside the realm of concept. We are forced to be our own guides, our own student, our teacher being ever present all around us."
