Isn't a man nor woman. A place nor thing.
It is the Most High that Teaches. He simply provides and directs vectors of people, places, and things, that awaken us to the truth. Our job is to pay attention; stop sleep-walking through our life and SEE.
The vectors are just an avenue and nothing more, nothing sacred, nothing at all, except to serve that purpose, and then, by definition, this becomes the meaning of life. To see, perceive, understand, love, be do...all vectors by the Great Teacher: God.
