Whatever happens.

Whatever happens.
By Buddhadasa Bhikkhu   


Whatever happens don’t go chasing after the crowd.
One’s own wisdom has the duty of discerning,
checking the waters and winds, considering,
investigating the ins and outs conscientiously. 

Once seeing through past and future,
the present disappears without a trace.
Further, when patience and kindness steady us,
the more wisely we see all species as they are.  

In this world there’s nothing that lasts,
while things swing left, right, and all around,
hold your ground in the middle, balanced, free,
you’ll pass through all dangers and realize your goal.
