Buddhism & Our Relationship With Reality

It’s important thing isn’t being optimistic or pessimistic,

but rather that we keep a careful eye on reality,

And not be overwhelmed by that reality,

Nor content with the status quo,

Keep the fire of our ideas ablaze while pioneering uncharted pathways,

Faith in life and in human spirits is the necessary foundation for this approach.
