A Mental Millionaire

Hello fellow tribe members – seekers of everyday, ordinary, unassuming gurus who come your way. They are everywhere. Here is a perfect example of a guru offered to us by a young lady who is going places in life. I’m a prophet. I can tell. She has the attitude that will have her dance, not stumble her way into a glorious future.

Hi Rob. My dance teacher is my everyday guru. I see her twice a week for sixty minutes each time. She teaches me not only great dance moves but great lessons that my mother says I can apply to my life. On the way home, I take notes on what I’ve learned from her that day. I wanted to apply it to my life. Here is what my dance teacher taught me two days ago about dancing. She said, when it comes to dancing, the only true friend I have is my body. It will never lie to me. If I treat my body with kindness by taking care of it, and train it well, my body will treat me well at my dance recital. My mother helped me to see how that was a great lesson about life. I believe my true friends in life are my classmates that never lie to me. I think I am also true friends to them because I never lie to them. We treat each other well as we learn to dance together through life. Maybe that’s a stretch, but I wanted to see what you thought about it. Thank you, Alicia.

I love that lesson, Alicia! That is not a stretch – that is absolutely perfect! Your dance teacher certainly is a wonderful unassuming guru, and you are a marvelous translator of the truth that she shared with you. I love what you did with your dance teacher’s insight.

The only reason you want to seek the truth, Alicia is because the truth is always truly powerful. It sets you free to live a happy, exciting life the easy way. The easy way is always the right way. The truth lights the way to the right way.

You have been everyone reading this blog’s guru today, Alicia. You are now a mental millionaire because that is a million dollar tip you offered all of us. Again I thank you.

Blessings, Rob
