each of them will serve as my teacher.
I will pick out the good points of the one and imitate them,
and the bad points of the other and correct them in myself."
Step by step, step by step,
I am able to become more fully human, more fully myself,
when I am attentive to the world around me:
to that which upsets or irks me,
and that which brings me delight or contentment.
Every state, every emotion, every reaction is an opportunity to impro.
May we allow our whole world be our teacher,
and may we listen well.
