A Prayer to the Teacher

A Prayer to the Teacher

God, please come and illumine me. Please act in me and through me.

I don't know what's right and what's wrong - I can't tell anymore.

I can be doing what I feel is right, and perhaps I am deceiving myself.

Perhaps it's all my ego and vanity.

Please show me what is right, or don't even show me - please just do it.

Whether it brings me happiness or unhappiness, riches or poverty, sorrow or joy. Please act in and through me. I love only you.

Oh teacher, I love you more than anything and anyone else in all of existence. When you smile at me the world lights up. If you frown my world ends.

If I create a block between us, through my foolishness, my pride, my arrogance, my jealousy, my fear, my self-love, then I suffer. I suffer and suffer.

And it's only when I remove those obstacles that I'll feel happy again.

But I know that you love me, no matter what I do, because you are all love.

You may be strict with me - you may be lenient. I trust you and I know that whatever you do or say is for my own good.

I've looked into your heart and seen Eternity. And I know that Eternity through you will always guide me, shelter me, and protect me.

I will do what you wish. I will do my best for all.

But even so, I am an insignificant creature
and not capable of fulfilling the dharma.

Please show me. Please guide me. If I make a mistake, please correct me. But more than anything, please love me, and let me love you. Because as we merge our beings and fuse the light, that is our reality together - that's my completion. That's when I see that I am you and that you are me.

I am thine and thou art mine.
