51.1My Lord Supreme, my Beloved Supreme,
My Absolute Lord Supreme,
Please teach me how to sweeten my heart
With my soulfulness-tears.
Please teach my heart how to climb up
Into the skies of readiness, willingness,
Eagerness and selflessness.
Please teach me how to escape
From my doubting mind,
From my ungrateful heart
And from my fearful life.
Please teach me how to forgive my enemies
So that I can have newness in my life.
Please teach me how to forgive myself
So that I can have fulness in my life.
Finally, please teach me how to love myself
The way You love me,
For my real perfection
And for my real satisfaction.
