Teaching and meditating...what's the difference?

The other day, I was talking to a colleague about a post I had seen on Facebook. It was about how we need to be in the now as opposed to thinking about the past or fearing what's to come. She commented laughing, on how difficult it is to be in the present. I think she's absolutely right!


 

Funny thing is, the only time we are in the the NOW is when we enter the classroom. All our baggage, our fears are left by the door the moment we walk into the room. The students envelop us with their warmth, joy and laughter. Their needs take precedence over anything else during those moments in the class. We are constantly looking around us, listening to what they have to say. I feel this is the closest to meditation I have ever been!
