Follow Truth

The Buddha didn't know that
his choice to be himself would
roll through the pages of history
like a rogue wave.  All he did

was sit beneath the bodhi tree,
intention fixed on awakening,
and when the light flowed in,
he offered it back as the fruit

of all his practice.  We each
act without knowing how the
ripples from our pond might
touch another, what the

consequences of our freedom
might be, or where the choice
to follow truth might lead.
