Certainty footholds on enlightenment mountain

What are the precursors for escaping the wheel of time
Asked an aspirant
Without a guru

The question had to be answered from within
And the inside can provide enlightenment
When contemplation can be taken at leisure

In safety and comfort
Full nights' sleeps, sufficient meals
Exercise and medically mediated health

And therefore
As we do not yet know how to make as many teachers as people
We must craft a comfortable platform as our society

A guild of thinkers, feelers, and welders of motion
Such that each of us can rise to the peak
And then live beyond the foibles of day-to-day

Able to ride the wind in either direction
While experiencing any outcome
As weather for which we are dressed
