A Warrior's Resolve: Desire And Reality
2004-04-27 A Warrior's Resolve: Desire And Reality 12:27
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
One way of pursuing happiness is to try to bend reality to conform to your pre-conceived notions. The other extreme is radical acceptance. But the Buddha’s middle way is to pursue your desire for true happiness in such a way that it doesn’t have bad side effects. This requires experimentation, risk-taking, precision, and attentiveness.
