Precious teachers

The traditional meditation principles make it clear to us that we are to view difficult people as "precious teachers". Here's something that illuminates this understanding:

Whosoever may torment you, harass you, confound you, or upset you, is a teacher. Not because they're wise, but because you seek to become so.

-- Mike Dooley
