As we walk along this journey in this life, we will encounter many teachers. If we keep our hearts open we will find that our teachers come in many forms. Sometimes our teacher will stay with us and teach many things. And at times a teacher may have just one lesson to share and send us on our way.

Dr. Kofi Ghartey came into my life when I was in my late teens. He changed the course of my life. Kofi is an optician. He studied in Canada and returned to Accra in Ghana to create a clinic called Sight for Africa trying to ensure that eye care was accessible for all. But he is much more than an eye surgeon he is a humble teacher to many.

He taught me about the true beauty of meditation. His gentle way of being and the space he holds of non-judgment are qualities that I learned to appreciate and value greatly.

After we would meditate I remember looking at him and seeing and feeling joy, love, and just bliss emit from him. One day I couldn’t help it so I asked him. What does that feel like and how do you get there? His reply… “Joy lives abundantly within you, it is the mind trying to convince you otherwise.” I learned that day that joy and love are always within reach because it lives within you. You cannot buy it and you might not be able to touch it but it is there within you always waiting for you to be present with it.

Today I am truly grateful that this gentle and wise soul is alive, not just for me but for all of the lives he touches.

Find a teacher in your life and say thank you today.

Have a lovely day.

Hello and welcome! My name is Randi-Mae and I am a author, counselor and inspirational speaker, or simply a woman on a journey with a mission to help people, explore the journey to peace within and living with joy. From a young age I have always had a curiosity about life and purpose. I was blessed to have parents who instilled in me the idea of self love and the concept of “love thy self.” Whether they believed it or not it was the message that they were meant to give me as my parents that has always had a place within me. It is a one of the four principles I include while working with people. The foundation of my practice rests upon the following four principles. Love Meditation Visualization Motion My goal and purpose is to assist you with discovering your strength and intuition through tapping into the insight and wisdom you have gained along the way on your journey while you actively participate in the school of life through lessons and experiences. Have a lovely day. Randi-Mae
