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. John Cunyus Dallas, Texas "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, Eugene, Oregon 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. Myles Hall, Christian Layperson, Azle, Texas "
