My spiritual guide
By Vika Gnezdilova | February 12, 2018
«Spiritual Mentor» — this phrase involuntarily makes you think about the person with whom you went through difficult moments. He gave the necessary advice, and he did not abandon you in a difficult situation. It feels like if there is an invisible connection with him/her, which every day becomes stronger and stronger, and it never fades.
Who is my spiritual guide? It is a teacher of the Russian language. In her lessons, my classmates and I learn not only different grammar rules, but also often listen to stories from her life and stories that teach us to achieve high-level goals. It is after a heart-to-heart conversation with her my mood changes, and I get a wish to start everything from scratch.
I often listen to her opinions, which change my views on the world. My teacher’s favorite quote: «Give a person a goal for which he/she should live and he/she can survive in any situation.» ‘The longer you think about the meaning of this phrase, the more it reveals for you. This quotation became my motto thanks to my spiritual guide.
There are times when there is no one to tell your story, and to share your personal problems and even here your spiritual mentor will support you, understand you and give you an advice. The main thing in the nature of the teacher I respect is extraordinary diligence and inner concentration. She is a spiritually strong, and a strong-willed person. She is outwardly soft, fragile, but inside — strong and energetic.
Years will pass, but I will never forget that sincerity in her kind eyes, and her soft smile. She was my teacher at the lesson, and like my second mother in her spare time. I am proud that I have such a strong spiritual mentor, who will always be for me the ideal of morality.
