I have a question for you

“A student once said, “When I was a Buddhist, it drove my parents and friends crazy, but when I am buddha, nobody is upset at all”

— An excerpt from the book “Wherever You Go, There You Are” by Jon Kabat-Zinn

What is the common characteristic of people who leave a remarkable mark in this world? Only one word that is so broad, its range infinite, and immaterial? An invisible force, so immense, even the evilness on this earth rise only for them to diminish over and over again?

If this word was a destination, all beings would eventually arrive here.
If there weren’t any destinations at all, every creature was either born or created from it.
Life, as in You, is manifested from this.
It drives you and me to exhibit the best examples there could be just so we could create another domino effect that heals.

Those who see through life’s game know what I speak of.
If not, let’s seek the answers together,
through inquiry and openness,
through acceptance and surrendering,
to the unknown, we give in,
because this word I speak of knows no logic.

So tell me, what is this?
