Information or inspiration?

What is the secret ingredient of an inspiring teacher?

There are teachers who impart information and there are teachers who inspire.

Maybe a bit of both is necessary. Information encourages us to live in our form and inspiration brings us into our spirit.  Socrates said “To teach is to ignite a flame, not fill a vessel.”

To ignite a flame, we need a flame. The teacher needs to be that flame, that light, that inspiration.

We need to be alight with passion, an embodiment of truth and light in order to touch and enlighten others.

How to get there? With our own practise! Yoga and mindfulness work! Anyone who has practised it over a period of time notices changes in themselves and in the world they inhabit. Maybe we could say that yoga has its way of changing people without conscious effort.
