Be Teachable

Be Teachable

 

The sound coming from my teacher’s desk

 

Stiff and inflexible head

 

Softened by Dharma rain only

 

One dies not by oneself only

 

But with all beings together

 

One learns not by oneself

 

But by the authenticity of another learner

 

This learning goes on

 

Indefinitely

 

Have you graduated?  Have I graduated?

 

I think not

 

Dropped out, or no, never entered in the first place

 

The mind of another

 

Returns you to your True Self

 

Pain is not a sign of failure

 

Good health is not success

 

Just open your earie eyes

 

And notice the globe encompassing you

 

Like a protective invisible shield

 

Or the inside of a chick’s egg

 

Still

being

sat on
