As Buddhist, truth and acceptance are the pillars of our faith, we practice and in time achieve suchness, which is a term, used to describe life as it is, the truth as it is, a flower is a flower. Without the knowledge of suchness we find ourselves trying to make things or life itself something that it is not. Desires and illusions make a person captive of a wellspring of untruths which in time will be ones demise.   

Peace to you
