A SENSEI’S PRAYER

18 Apr

From the Goshin-Do Karate-Do, DeFelice-Ryu archives, submitted for your contemplation,

A SENSEI’S PRAYER

DEAR LORD, PLEASE HELP ME –

TO accept human beings as they are – not yearn for perfect creatures;
TO recognize ability – and encourage it;
TO understand shortcomings – and make allowance for them;
TO work patiently for improvement – and not to expect too much too quickly;
TO appreciate what people do right – not just criticize what they do wrong;
TO be slow to anger and hard to discourage;
TO have the hide of an elephant and the patience of Job;
IN short Lord, please help me be a better Sensei!
