Being a Teacher – Walking in My Destiny

Inside myself I laugh at myself. It feels like a big joke. Like that the Universe is not permitting me to escape my ‘fate’ 🙂 Because I never considered it possible that I would become a teacher. Me a teacher? No way. Never …

For years I resisted the thought of being the ‘master’ of a classroom full of kids. My ego was using my imagination to produce pictures of boring and dull situations.

Why was I protesting inside? Because many members of my family are teachers. My grandfather and my parents were, my sister, my uncle and my niece are it still today … And I charmed myself with the idea that I am unique, special and ‘otherwise’ than my family. I would live my life otherwise. I would go another path. I would choose my ‘own’ destiny …

But after years of different jobs I am feeling inside that the school as workplace is attracting me. It itches and it tickles inside me …

This started to become real when I was bringing my daughter to school and when I was feeling there an atmosphere of caring and loving attention … 🙂

And now … I am studying and practicing to be a teacher … Enthusiastically … Yes … You read that right … Enthusiastically 🙂

Those Shining Stars Above Are Pushing Us Non Stop To Move Again During Daylight

Did you ever ask yourself how it is possible that the earth is still turning after billions of years? And why that movement is continuously? Day after day, night after night and year after year. Without getting stuck. Or even without delays or errors …

The answer to this question is hidden in the stars 🙂 It are the stars themselves. These countless, blinking, seemingly motionless spots are like restrained horses in the dark. They are full of fire. Earnestly desiring to break loose and to let their energy go into the emptiness.

It is like stepping on the gas, while the brake is still on. Your car will than bump and bump. Also these far away lights are restlessly prancing and dancing. And it are these exited movements that are pressing the old earth wave after wave … to turn again, again and still again around its axis …

Power of Speech

For years I was wondering about the possiblity of this website. I thought many times about wisdom and my desire to help other people, specially in asking their burning questions. To escape the hush thoughts of our minds, the ‘all is going well’ expressions on our faces and to make the unspoken requests be heard.

Four Weeks
Four weeks ago I started my adventure as Splinter of Wisdom by telling a good friend about mij deep felt wish. For the first time I was hearing myself telling the vision of this site, just by words shaping it and calling it in existence. Listening to myself I felt very surprised. I thought: ‘Wow, would this really be so simple? Why am I not already doing it? Let’s just start!’

Starting Shot
And after the sound of this starting shot the words were just welling up to the surface. All these years ‘they’ had grown deep inside me. And now ‘they’ were ready to come to the surface of my soul. I was just calling ‘them’ out. And there ‘they’ were. Splashing like the bubbles of a deep well!

King Solomon

As a child I was impressed by the story of King Solomon. It was said that before and after this king no human could be as wise as he. So I kept for years praying: ‘Please, give me 99,9 % of the wisdom of Solomon’.
