Q: The world is the classroom. What does this saying mean?
The path exists to make better travelers who are more able to participate in the world. The point of spiritual studies is to add capacity and integrate other aspects of consciousness. This is done to raise the quality of every day interaction between people.
While a period of spiritual preparation apart from others might be required, and usually it is not necessary, this separation is for a limited period. The learning is to occur in the world; this is our classroom and the spiritual traveler has multiple abilities that cannot mature unless they are exercised daily in the world.
If God/Light wanted us to be solely of spirit and not participate in the physical, we would have remained in the spiritual realm. The body and our emotions are necessary to this part of the journey.
