I've been thinking about Jiddu Krishnamurti, the extraordinary world teacher, who was the gate of entry to expanded awareness for so many, myself included. Of course, the gate was only a beginning, leading on and on and on.
Late in Krishnamurti's life, he was asked in an interview, if he thought that his life of teaching and speaking and writing had made a difference. Without hesitation he said, "Of course, not!" Surprised, the interviewer asked, "Then, why do you teach?" Krishnamurti responded, "Why does the bird sing?"
Krishnamurti was famous for saying, "Where there is love, do as you will." Or, perhaps, it's "do as you are willed." Or, perhaps, there's no difference and that's the difference that makes the difference.
