Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Compassion Of Wisdom


Answers of life cannot be found in talking with others,
only there will you avoid these truths.

Rambling of voices, searching for wisdom does not bring
it magically into being.

Only seeing with hearts full of love and compassion can
wisdom be found within any of us.

    The search for truth, one of the most pleasurable experiences in life, a never ending journey, rendering all humans to be ''becomings' rather than 'beings'. The moments of biggest truth are discovered when we are looking at that little spark inside, let it become a small flame or even a nice fire. Books and conversation about the Big Turth are best reserved for the darker moments, as they must come, when we cannot find the spark inside.
    These are very thought provoking and inspiring lines, you penned down here, RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    So true a realization! ! Yes the truth of life and its significance can be realized mostly through self awakening.
    Very true. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
