The FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS are 1) Life is suffering 2) The cause of suffering is desire for what you want 3) There is a way to stop this suffering 4) The way is the eightfold path 1) Right understanding 2) Right thinking 3) Right Speech 4) Right attitude 5) Right livelihood 6) Right effort 7) Right mindfulness 8) Right concentration Affirming Faith in Mind is very close to my understanding of Buddhism. It is by letting things be as they are that frees us from suffering. By letting things be as they are we are freed from ego suffering. Right thought and action corrects the world also. You and the world are not separate. Just say it is not two different things. You, and I and the world are not separate. Quantum mechanics is a science that tells the same tell. May we find the root of suffering? Our change in heart will bring about peace. Alice Miller wrote a book called FOR YOUR OWN GOOD, HIDDEN CRUELTY IN CHILD REARING AND THE ROOTS OF VIOLENCE. She also agrees with truth.
