Poem, “Acceptance”

Please appreciate the following poem.

“You ought to see there is
No certainty,
Nothing absolute,
Nature continues,
regardless,
no matter what.
It can be exhilarating,
Sheer joy, ecstasy,
Magic moments,
Unexpected inspiration,

But then it can be unjust,
so badly unfair,
beyond understanding,
but who am I to judge?
Nature continues regardless.
The pain of my fears leads to
the comfort of my acceptance,

to let go,
relinquish control,
unattached, free,
flowing with the tides of life,
for then true peace comes from within,
My determination and courage,
winning through

And so I surrender,
working with the force,
embracing it, gaining strength,
for I know in darkness,
inner peace can grow,
I see that now
nature continues in its own way,
not mine.”

    Back in the Old Stone Age, everything was seemingly so simple and straight forward like in the poem, but things have changed over the course of the years.
    There could be so many different things that have leaded us to where and whom we are.
    Can you pick ONE thing if you can what might/could be as someone who is articulate and educated about philosophy and Buddhism?

      Thank you, Becky. Do you want me to recommend one good scholar or Buddhist master, who can bring you the best knowledge about the truth?
      I will appreciate if you explain it one again. 🙂

      As I told you, Buddhism is the wisdom that you are looking for and the answer for your question is Buddha, historically and philosophically.

    To try to give you an idea of mine, I can tell still there is truth among the tranquillity and emptiness rather than sophisticated knowledge and wisdom. If you have your mind into a deep peace, you could finally have the ultimate peace and wisdom, which is the core teaching of Buddhist truth and practice. Thank you.
