This used to be my favorite thing to talk about. The whole I AM thing... But as I have aged I have grown into the thought that it's not my job to
awaken everybody as if I am some enlightened being, that's laughable at best..

Thanks for reading
I just wanted to let you know you're certainly not alone. I'm sure you know that, but I could use reminders of that time-to-time
I also had a similar realization as the one you wrote above. At first, you want to learn as much as you can and go teach it. It doesn't work. Best you
can do is learn as much as you can and DO it...be a demonstration, be the example...Show it, don't tell it. (Easier said than done, right?)
In fact, because you and I are less inclined to want to share and teach, it really does show a level of maturity. Many texts warn about trying to
teach spiritual knowledge..it is like casting your pearls before swine--and it only scares people away. Think about the first time someone tried to
tell you about love and enlightenment. If you were anything like me, you probably resisted, laughed, and spat at the message.
People will learn in their own context, in their own time, and in their own way. It is nobody's job to teach this stuff. But once you learn it, you
provide an example and a precedent for others to follow if they choose.
Addition: Thanks for sharing that bit about your dream of the killer whale! It sounds eerily similar to my recurring dreams. I shall learn from your
lesson as well. What a great epiphany to have! Maybe Moby Dick wasn't some pretentious art house crap after all haha
