There is a saying that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Although the origins of this saying are debated, the message is clear. When we are ready to learn something, especially if it’s relevant to our life’s journey, something will show up in our lives to help teach or guide us to whatever it is we need to learn.
This guidance can show up anywhere–in the lyrics of a song, in a comment from a friend, or in the words written on the back of a truck. Like seeing a small firefly in a dark sky, this guidance can be an aha moment and a spark of illumination. If we pay attention to these moments and stay curious, we remain open to learning the lessons life is trying to teach us.
I share my encounters with these curious fireflies here and on my blog on Medium at https://medium.com/@acuriousfirefly.
I invite you to join me on this journey of taking in firefly moments.
