That is very true. It's like the President of the country, who has children. They have direct access to the President and the President will teach the child directly. We don't have that access even if we desperately want it. Even if we got that access, it is only for one time and very short. His own children has access every day nearly any time they want or need it.
We are like that with God. We don't get that access because we "earned" it or asked for it, but because we are His children and God is our Father. So the reason we have access is not because we actively sought it out, but that God actively sought us out and made us His children.
Then God "sent" the Holy Spirit who teaches us all things as God wills us to learn.
Of course, like little children, we are easily distracted by the things of this world and tend to not listen very well. So we do have to learn to pay attention and to make our little efforts to go to our Father often.
Only a little bit, in fact, rarely did Jesus teach us in the Temple. He spent most of his teaching time in the field, on the road, kicking back in life, sitting around the camp fire, eating, walking, and while doing work.
