teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
Many Incarnate Angels feel that they are here for a purpose, and further more have a purpose for which they exist or were made to exist.

I personally believe that a large part of my purpose was teaching and serving as a mentor. I recall, and others I have spoken with also recall there being a system of students and mentors as many young Angels were sent to a mentor to be "raised" and taught all the ins and outs of existence as an Angel, how to perform their purpose and largely the benefit of the mentor's experience over (God knows how long) they existed.

Do you recall being part of a mentor/student relationship at any point, have an idea of your early days, coming into your functionality or purpose?

Re: teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
I will answer yes. Rapahel was my mentor/teacher. I was trained as a healer.
I also was mentored by Uirel too. Taught me some mysticism I think Im not sure. I just remember sitting with him which seemed to be in a learning setting.

Re: teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
I do recall a mentor, though too many claim him and I'm not sure if I'm making it up or they are. or all or none or whatever. I dunno. But I do recall a strong relationship like that. i have some ideas which have been shared with a small number.

Re: teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
By Raphael and Uriel... now that's an all-star cast there.

I personally don't remember having a mentor, though I do remember mentoring others. What do you two recall as far as length of time, do you feel it was job specific, choir specific, were you the only one or were you part of a group?

Re: teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
We're not angels, but some things may apply here. Our father did teach us about war (and peace, of course). However, none of us recall passing that knowledge on in any way, which either means it never happened or we just didn't have a very memorable student.

Re: teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
Well I remember having one no-name angel for a... well... "mentor"... he tried to teach me many stuff, but we were allways arguing, because I was stubborn, a bit overconfident and... well you get the idea... <!-- s:mrgreen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green" /><!-- s:mrgreen: -->

Re: teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
I do remember having someone who took me under their wing, as it were. Have no idea who it was, though. Dark hair, blue eyes, prominent chin and a toothy grin that took up most of his face. Another gate guard. We were like foxhole buddies or something.

Re: teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
So Qarael had the old guy that knows all the ins and outs and how to sleep on the job without getting caught and decided to take on a protege, I've got students, Veritas believes she's got somebody popular, and some had two very high up Archangels, got quite a rambling of opinions here.

Now here's the big question as well, what was taught and how was it taught?

I believe that most of my teaching style was a nature rather than nurture style. I was patient, I would give a lesson and then ask for application and was not afraid to allow my students to mess it up a few times before teaching. One learns best when frustrated by failure, so I believe anyway. I do know that for me and my students, a battle oriented curriculum was there, a lot like a traditional dojo, the way of fighting along with the why of fighting. Patience was a lesson I fought hard to teach, and the idea that you should never engage in an activity without the will to see it through, never speak words that one is not comfortable with any party hearing and most assuredly that the speaker is not ready to back up.

I always taught that whatever is right, is what is right, if you believe it, stand up for it and never back down from doing things the right way, this is why of the three students I recall, I believe two are extremely pure and one is Fallen and confident in the why and still does what he believes is right (though regrettably I do not know the circumstances of the alleged Fall).
