Your mind has a flood of questions.
There is but one teacher
Who can answer them
Who is that teacher?
Your silence-loving heart.

Your teachers

Let the sky
Become
Your teacher.
You will learn
How to serve.

Let the moon
Become
Your teacher.
You will learn
How to love.

Let the sun
Become
Your teacher.
You will learn
How to become.
