I have been searching. Teach me the mystical doctrines

You are my mentor, teach me.

I have prepared, I have opened my mind.
I am ready to receive the wisdom you can offer.
Fill me with the jewels of inspiration, teach me the joys of your way.
As I gaze upon your wonderful face, my teacher, I know that I have found an earnest master, to coach me in the ways of meditation, of seeing the spirit, of looking deep within myself
and of seeking outward,
talking to God.

Help me to understand,
set my unsteady feet upon the paths of learning.
I am yours to write upon, an empty page.
