Overview

Life, as many of us experience it, is full of suffering. Suffering arises from desire. We manage suffering only to the extent we manage desire: overcome desire and overcome suffering as well.

Buddhism offers a time-tested, accessible method for overcoming suffering. Though some are interested in Buddhism as a philosophy or a religion, I am interested in it as a sufferer.

As such, my purpose in writing is not to convert you to a new religion or to put down your old one. It is to help us deal with pain and live more fully. In that spirit, I invite you to share this ancient method that still seems fresh and new.

"You are applying Buddha¿s teachings to your own way. That can help those who are still wrestling with words and phrases. I like the way you adapted the dharma to modern day thought, and to your own personal experiences. A very good read and it makes for a refreshing perspective on a time-honored tradition."

¿ Rev. Yao Feng Shakya,

Buddhist Minister,

The Middle Way [the Buddhist method] provides a balance, incorporating asceticism and mysticism into a healthy approach to solving the problem of suffering, without a requirement that the Christian adopt beliefs or practices that are inconsistent with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a life led according to the Biblical principles.
