The best teaching is like water.
Without any agenda, it nourishes life.
It flows everywhere – even in places that are supposedly unreachable.
Ground your teaching in the lives of the people you teach;
look deeply into what you are doing;
support your students unconditionally;
don’t lie to save their feelings;
don’t abuse your authority;
do your job – teach;
take action when it is most appropriate.
It’s about working with ignorance, not against it.
