Adapted from Emilie Rose
I admit that of myself I am powerless over my frustration to
teach students who do not want to learn from me. I
surrender my frustration: I let it go.
I believe that a higher power resides in each one of us that does the
true teaching/guiding. I believe that this power is available to all now.
I no longer equate my worth with others’ lack of positive response.
I make a decision to respond to the guidance of an inner, higher light.
By this decision I surrender my ego involvement and am released
from all tension and pain. I no longer give myself to mistreatment and
use my assertive skills.
I release all preconceived attitudes towards the students, the
administration, my performance, and my peers. I set no
blocks or limits to what I can accomplish, but open myself
to a willingness to be all that I can be, even if that means leaving
teaching in this setting.
I forgive myself for berating myself when the lesson flops, the
students are uncooperative, the administration unsupportive, the parents hostile or
my peers indifferent. I forgive myself and all others. I bless the opportunities for
spiritual and professional growth which surround me. I forgive, I release,
I set free, myself and others.
I ask that I might have the peace to follow higher consciousness guidamce for myself and the courage to direct my talents elsewhere if so guided.
I am gratefully accepting the peace I have gained in my chosen
profession. I know that my life and the lives of those I touch shall
be made richer through me. When that ceases to be the case, I find
another outlet for my talents, abilities and dedication.
I will be guided to know when to leave the classroom and use my
multiple talents to better advantage in another setting.
