Nirvana

Nirvana

A Poem by GDS

The Buddha’s teachings incline that the root of all suffering is attachment. Sitting here I think �" yes, I can concur to this. I believe the reason jail is so hard, is due to the fact that we are stripped away from all that we are attached to. But this thought imposes some questions within me �" if this is so, then why does it feel natural to be attached to the ones you love? Why would nature create us in such a way? Are we supposed to aim to be something we are not? Creating a strain within our hearts? Is this the ultimate goal? Wouldn’t this be contradicting to being human? I myself, dwell between both of these philosophies and state of minds �" leaving me forever confused. I don’t think it’s a matter of one being more righteous than the other. I believe it’s what resonates most deeply within one’s soul. I no longer think that there is a one-fits-all road to nirvana. I believe that all the sacred teachings known to man are simply there to make one reflect �" only then, like the reflection of a still lake, can one see clearly within themselves, the ultimate truth.
