I am still on this Life's series and you can catch up with the other posts I've made on this Life's series, for you to fully understand each topic but still, each post is self-explanatory.

Life Is About Balance.

Life Is About Living, I.

Life Is About Living, II.

Life Is About Mercy.

Today, I would be talking about "Life Is About Teaching."

Life teaches but the sad thing is that most people are not ready to learn. They would rather hold on to their view of things and hold on to their desire to be right rather than to learn. Life has been designed to teach us but we have to be able to open our hearts to learn.

Nature teaches and even everything we see around teaches. If anyone has taken careful consideration to understand how ants operate then we would see that we can learn from them. The ants would gather all the food they need when the ground is dry (dry season). They keep storing as much as they can but when the rainy season starts, they stay in and feast on what they have gathered.

They had no leader yet they do things orderly and here we are as humans, we are the most disorganized creature on earth. They also are not fazed by anything because they believe so much in teamwork but see humans, they would rather scatter things, make others look bad rather than join hands to achieve a common goal. For humans, it's always about who takes the glory rather than joining hands to do what would benefit both parties in the long run.

We suffer a lot as humans because we are shortsighted. We don't think too far ahead because we are not open to being taught and life wants to teach us. This life is about teaching so we have to be taught as much as we are to teach others too.

A little child can teach you and even nature can teach you about patience. Most people want to gather all the experience and still make others suffer so they can go through what they went through. That's witchcraft and I am not sorry to say that. If you can make the journey of other people easier by teaching them the things you have known, won't that be nice rather than make them go through the same process because you want them to understand what "suffering" is all about... Come on!

I have heard a lot of wealthy folks say they would make their children also suffer because they want them to "be taught". I understand where they are coming from but I am sorry, it's pure madness because there are better ways you can teach them without subjecting them to the rigour of the suffering you went through. This is the whole essence of communication and leading a life of impact.

This is why we read books; to be taught...to alleviate our ignorance so we can do better because when we know better then we can do better. Whatever you teach others you are helping their ignorance because they didn't know and now they know. It also goes both ways because when you teach others, it's hard for you to forget those teachings and it serves as a reminder for you as well to know where you are coming from. It also helps to keep you grounded.

As humans, we have that tendency to forget things sometimes especially when we have overcome a particular challenge but when we teach others, we are reminding ourselves of where we are coming from. Teaching others is important in life but that person must be ready to receive it too. You can't force teaching on anyone, we have that with most educational systems but with life, it has to be received.

There are many things we can teach each other. We have general knowledge, we have academics, we have those who are vast in politics or other aspects and we also have personal experiences too. The truth is, everything we have been taught in life, doesn't have to end with us. It doesn't have to be for us alone, we need to teach others too.

We are to pass down those valuable lessons that we have been taught through several experiences. We need to teach others so they can understand that they are not alone in that struggle. You know others can quickly get over an issue when they know someone has gone through it and came out of it because we tend to sometimes think the problem we have is peculiar to us but the moment we know we are not alone in it, it gives strength to push ahead and that's why teaching and helping one another through teaching is valuable.

What are you teaching others? Our experiences in life are valuable and should be taught to others to make their journey faster and maybe easier. This life doesn't come with a manual that's why we should be intentional about teaching others the things we know but if they are not willing to be taught, just let go, they are not yours. We need to have a better perspective on this life because teaching others is not necessarily a function of who is older. A younger person can teach an older person since life deals with all of us differently. We also need to be careful about what we teach others because it can either make or mar them.

Thank you for your time.

We are probably well aware of the saying "Education is the backbone of the nation". One has to understand one's mind very well, however, one has to take this teaching very seriously so that one can reach the main goal by learning honestly. An honest man with a good education is the capital of a society. When another person learns from an honest person, his honesty will spread like a river, and the society will be enlightened by the teachings of well-educated honesty. This is why every one of us needs to take education with sincerity. No matter how big or small the job, if we can learn it well with experience, then we will develop the skills that we are constantly learning.

Learning to our experience gives us overviews of the things we could make better. There are ups and downs about learning and that's part of our lives. We learned from everything on our experience and sometimes we learned from other people.

First yeah I was amazed how industrious ants are. It's so amazing how organnized they are in collecting foods. Always in line. There are times I would strared at them. Hehehe. We can actually learned from anyone in different aspect of life. It could be a knowledge or just about life. If we just take a look and observe there so many learnings. Though most of all we always learned based on our experiences. Life teached us some lessons as yeah , you had mentioned there is no manual..there is no book for our life as we are the one who will write. Hay Ola, you really knows a lot of things. Your articles are worth to read to have some possitivity in life. You can be a sugar to anyone who had a bitter life.😁

I can agree that we humans are the worst creations in this world as we do nothing but to compete instead of helping each other, Ants don't have leaders but yeah they work as one, unlike humans we have leaders buy eventually everyone acts as leaders and never wanted to be corrected. Life teaches us a lot of lessons but not everyone realize that lesson earlier of their lives, even me.

Those who ignore the lifes lesson are not mature enough to see things differently or they are not that open minded. Making excuses or aliby just make themselves right is really not a good habit. There's more that life may bring, so why insist, why not take it for good.

A true teacher should facilitate. Yes we should teach others what we know but we should also let them stand in their own feet. However, we need to guide them to our outmost effort but we should never do things that they're the one should be doing. Life is about gaining and sharing/teaching. We should never let anyone suffer the way we did.

Teaching others is truly a gift. Teaching is a good one, to help for the better. To help the individuals to arise, to lift up. You can help the others from ourselves even it's too small still it's a huge learnings from what we teach them. I know it has a great impact already.

Sometimes we need to be teach also. We shouldn't be hard headed. Just listen and learn especially if it is for us. It is for our own good. It's for the life better.

one view that made my day more appreciative of everything that happened. because it is true that we have to understand all of this life, learning is the way we understand this life. when we fall we learn to get up and we learn not to fall a second time this may be a simple statement to me but the content of this description has taught something to be able to change life for the better. good

Everyone can't be right, we are ignorant of one thing or the other and that's why we keep learning. We can even learn from someone far younger.

But the problem, alot of people believe they are right. Then life wants to teach you but you don't want to learn.
