There are times when the answers to our questions just seem to appear before us. A thing that had not been so obvious, becomes obvious. It isn’t that you weren’t looking for the answer, you had just not looked at it the right way quite yet to discover the answer.
There are also times when those that would help to guide our learning, would suddenly appear at the precise right time. They arrive right when you need the guidance. Thing is, they were always there. You had just become ready for them to offer their help.
From an open mind a foundational purpose you are better able to find your way and align the support of others to help you do so. From a closed mind and no clear purpose for learning, you would only be passing the time.
