"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world." These words of the Buddha point to the timeless value of Buddhism. Thoughts both shape our lives and define our future. What is the quality of the thoughts that we are bringing forth? Ultimately, every person is looking for the same thing, happiness and a sense of inner peace. Regardless of how we try to achieve that sense of happiness and peace, most likely we will end up disappointed. So often what we thought would bring us happiness and peace turns out to be short lived. Any sense of happiness and peace that involves us looking outside ourselves will be transient. Everything in life is impermanent. People will eventually leave us, money can be lost, our position or status will eventually decline, and our bodies are bound to change. There is an aspect of life that is permanent and non-changing, that aspect is life itself. The expressions of life are transient, but life itself is eternal. Every person can gain access to this eternal and non-changing aspect of themselves. This book provides the principles and meditations to make this possible.
