The Student's Prayerby Umberto Maturana
Donít impose on me what you know,
I want to explore the unknown
and be the source of my own discoveries.
Let the known be my liberation, not my slavery.
The world of your truth can be my limitation;
your wisdom my negation.
Donít instruct me; letís walk together.
Let my riches begin where yours ends.
Show me so that I can stand
on your shoulders.
Reveal yourself so that I can be
You believe that every human being
can love and create.
I understand, then, your fear
when I ask you to live according to your wisdom.
You will not know who I am
by listening to yourself.
Donít instruct me; let me be.
Your failure is that I be identical to you.
