Buddha – "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"

When I first encountered this quote, I did not find any meaning in it. I thought the teacher has to be proactive in teaching others and in the process, the student will learn. If the teacher never take action, the student never learn.

It was only recently that I gain some understanding. Most of us, if not all of us, hear what we are ready to hear. If we are not ready to receive, nothing, no matter how sound the advice is, will get into our head. It is ourselves who choose to filter out information. The fact is the teacher is always ready to teach but the student is not always ready to listen. Some received and accepted later in their life and often regretted saying to themselves, “Why didn’t I know this earlier.” It is because the student is not ready. The answer has been out there all the while but the student did not receive it because he shut it out.

Be a ready student – the answer that you seek will come to you.
