May the Teachers Guide Me

Standard

May the teachers guide me on this path
that my heart remain open
and my mind clear,
that I remember who I am
and where I’m going,
that only the clearest intentions
motivate me forward,
that my thoughts words and actions
be of benefit to all beings,
that my presence might help
alleviate the suffering of this world.
Om.

An Open Mind

Standard

An open mind
doesn’t know…
it can’t know
because it is all
constantly changing
whether you plan for ecstasy
or you plan for misery
you never know how
it will all turn out.
Keep an open clear mind
be curious
embrace the not-knowing
let the whole world
tumble along at your feet
child’s play
as you quietly observe,
breathe
and look on.
