The Teacher and The Taught

All that I know of what is, is by knowing what it is not
To teach is to become both that which is and who is taught
A chance to know it in its true essence so rare 
A privilege so few get to experience and share

To teach is to let one’s inner wealth transpire 
An opportunity to mould, redefine and inspire 
When one holds what is taught much bigger than oneself 
Love, light and grace descends into the experience by itself

A teacher is not someone or something to be sought 
Nor is a teacher inherently separate from the taught 
When the pain of ignorance and longing to know disillusions and deepens Then the ego bows and attention awakens — the teacher simply happens!

Love, Grace & Pranams,
