Said the teacher to the student

I teach you to love yourself
because it is the only way
to know what it means to love another.

I teach you to forgive yourself
because it is the only way
to forgive others.

I teach you to embrace your suffering
because it is the only way
to understand others‘ suffering.

I teach you to know the self
because it is the only way
to know others.

I teach you to have compassion for the self
because it is the only way
to have compassion for others.
