Overview

In this complex modern world of ours, most people spend their lives getting more money, getting a nicer car, getting a fancy home, getting a mate, even getting health and "happiness." Thus many of us are addicted to alcohol, drugs, food, sex, or gambling – or to our money, our homes, our cars, our televisions, or our social circles. Based on the Four Noble Truths laid down 2500 years ago by Gautama the Buddha, The Joy Beyond Craving explains how true happiness is found, not in getting as much as we can for ourselves, but in letting go of the self-centered cravings that drive us to struggle in this way. In Part 2 The Joy Beyond Craving revises the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous based on these principles to make them non-sectarian, non-sexist, and guilt-free.
