Teaching can be sometimes nerve-wrecking but there are moments of pure joy when you see a kid’s face light up when understanding something or hear the most profound questions being formulated for the first time in someone’s mind. For this art journal entry I was pondering on one of my favorite quotes from the Baha’i Writings: “To gather jewels have I come to this world. If one speck of a jewel lie hid in a stone and that stone be beyond the Seven Seas, until I have found and secured that jewel My hand shall not stay from It’s search.”
Somehow for me teaching is, in all humility, the same process. Helping children unearth the jewels they have within them!
