noble eightfold path

Just this noble eightfold path: right view, right aspiration, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration...I followed that path.

  1. Life is challenging. For everyone. Our physical bodies, our relationships-all of our life circumstances-are fragile and subject to change. We are always accommodating.
  2. The cause of suffering is the mind’s struggle in response to challenge.
  3. The end of suffering-a non-struggling, peaceful mind-is a possibility.
  4. The program for ending suffering is the Eightfold Path.
