The Middle Way – A short exerpt from Buddhist Philosophy

Photobucket

A small note inspired by Buddhist philosophy and practice – the “Middle Way”: teaches us to embrace Life without clinging or aversion. It is the path to lessen suffering.

“To walk the Middle Way is to say a big ‘yes’ to life, to the good, to good fortune as well as ill. It is to walk right down the middle, facing up to suffering and all, without avoiding anything that life brings or being carried away by success or failure, praise, or blame, suffering or pleasure.”

– “The Middle Way” (Journal of the Buddhist Society)
