Lesson Plan for Life

We ought not to look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dear-brought experience. George Washington, First president of US (1732 - 1799)
The best lessons not only give us information but have us grow. We learn best when we are willing students. We won't always know when we are right in the middle of a life lesson. It is only later with time and hindsight do we realize what we learned.

What are we learning?

First, we learned how to walk, talk and how to ask for what we needed. Later we learned simple things; how to tie a shoe, write our names, eat with a knife and fork. We acquire skills over the course of our life. Daily we do normal things; we go to work, attend school, and socialize with friends. We are doing what we are meant to do, we are living.

Learning never ends.

Our grade teacher is no longer breathing down our necks forcing us to study. Nonetheless study continues. Sometimes the lessons smack us upside the head with their impact. Others times it is a slow subtle journey to enlightenment. The best teachers are ones that take us on a journey. The best students are the ones who are willing to explore.

The idea of life as lesson can chafe at us. We may resist this idea but we constantly change. We acquire knowledge and information as we go along without realizing it. But we don't always grow. We gather information and don't use it wisely. A small time crook can learn more about crime in prison then out on the streets. We can live in darkness, or we can evolve.
