Today we had a parent-teachers meetings day in the school. The teacher shared with us how wonderful it was that Talya (11 years old) guided her classmates through the compassion exercise last month. She said they really got into it, and suggested she would do it with them once a month, so they can practice and integrate it in their daily life.
Then she said we need to go see the headmaster.
We went to his office, a bit apprehensive, not knowing what this was about. He asked Talya if she knew why he had invited her. Finally he told her that she was an outstanding student, not because of her success in classes, but because of her kindness and good heart. He told her he wanted her to know they have noticed that, and they appreciated how she always helped everyone, without anyone needing to ask. He also commented on how she was not changing in her kind attitude, staying in that with everyone.
It reminded me of the personal primaries she created on her Avatar course, 3 years ago. One of them was "I help people, I am always there for them". Doing Avatar was the best thing for her, it brought out her gift and gave her wonderful tools to share it with others and not be changed by the discouragement in the world. I am for ever grateful for that and for the future she will create thanks to the tools!
Lots of love,
