Why are there those among our Lightfamily who, possessing a fraction of your capacity for revelation, will nevertheless strenuously object to being referred to as ‘student’?
In such an instance, the following dynamic is playing out:
One of the greatest impediments to masterful living is the presence of a self-identity. Identity traps the awareness and strengthens the prison bars of social conditioning. We all play different roles at different times, but when we allow the role to define us, then it has become an identity. Such folly is easily able to be noticed. But what is a more hidden form of identity, is indicated by someone vehemently denying to call a role they may on occasion be playing, by its name. Upon closer examination one usually finds that these individuals identify themselves by some self-appointed mission or grand cause. If one can but see how perfectly everything unfolds when seen from the eternal perspective, it becomes the height of arrogance to think we are needed for saving or championing anything.
We are all constantly being students of individuated existence. All around us is designed for self-study and learning… it’s the purpose of life, no matter what we choose to call it.
It’s possible that such a Q&A, like many without face-to-face interaction, is a contrivance and there wasn’t competitiveness about revelation. In a situation where student isn’t the pertinent or only role, there’s no reason to push that identity on another; perhaps there’s no reason to push it on anyone in any situation. Even with a high principle, consideration of how each sees their life and their role in it would be basic respect. Seeing into another’s life may not yield the same insights as person-to-person, fluid interaction. Since many experiences in such sharing are online without seeing another’s expression or tone of voice that may include humor or happiness, judgments can’t be absolute. With gratitude, thank you.
Despite my Eternal Student personality,
I also must live a Masterful Life! The two
poles need not be opposites!
Much to ponder!

I had written this weeks ago but perhaps I will share it here:
Standing here before me
If You Are my own creation
Oh! what a Master must I be…
When the student is ready The Teacher appears…Is there really a separate One? Both Roles are unique and in this case…what Majesty is Unfolding Dearest Ones. Truly it is a living Revelation…
Thank you Rogier for this question…and the Answer Is A Living Prayer…
There is something else, in my experience, that is unfolding with regard to what is written here. It is that language is becoming increasingly hard to use as the nature of returning to Source unfolds.

I agree Marta, many times a day when i want to say something or explain something i cannot find the right words to express what i want it seems like it is flat and missing much tone to it and depth.
