Relationship with the Lamas

It is a wildfire of communication, sometimes a lightning storm of panic, nervousness, and insecurity, sometimes a thunderclap of exhilaration, sudden inexplicable awareness or simple appreciation. There is always the tension of electricity. With my Lamas as the background of everything I do, there is no place to hide. It is not that they see everything I do, but that I see everything through their eyes of complete, naked honesty. They have transmitted that much to me: the only lie is to myself. There is ecstatic electricity when you open to the moment when grace meets gratitude. That is the Lama-student relationship, if you ask me.
