day, there you are, challenging me to embrace every experience in
my life. To learn from what I see and feel. To look at the good
and bad, and ultimately see the benefits of both - a bringing into
perfect balance. Every action, every thought, a chance to taste
life in all its myriad fragments, which ultimately become one.
care, your compassion, your understanding - at any time, any place,
you are there for me as a guide and as a friend. You understand
the very manner by which to bring out the best in me - no easy solutions.
You give me a nudge, and leave it to me to reach deep down inside
myself, to trust my intuition and to find the solutions. And there,
always, is the answer I need. It is just a matter of trust and opening
my heart to truths through meditation and contemplation.
Through you, I have learned to look at my life with no regrets.
I know my actions, no matter how successful or otherwise, have been
acted out with my best intentions and commitment. By giving my very
best I live an honest life. I have learned about compassion, both
for others and myself. An understanding and empathy for my fellow
people - of their most human achievements and failings - this has
helped me to love, and be strong.
have opened a window to a continuous state of happiness - a liberation
from lower states of mind. The key to turning any situation, no
matter how grim it appears superficially, into a positive one. And
how to retain this level of happiness and power despite outside
circumstances. Some of the darkest moments have dissolved into my
greatest moments of peace.
have developed a greater understanding of myself - and with this
I have attained my highest levels of achievement in all aspects
of my life - relationships, career, sports, my surroundings. And
this brings me a great sense of satisfaction and contentment.
all, these are a bringing into balance in my life - a place for
both hard and soft. And this allows me to live my life as I feel
is right for me. I am true to myself, and that is my best. You guide
me from one level, to the next, to the next, and onwards ...
my teacher, I love you.
