Daily Zen

And so are there four noble truths: 

Life is suffering thru' birth trauma, illness, old age, fear of approaching death, separation from what one loves, stuck with what one hates.
The cause of all suffering is desire
The cure for all suffering is to remove desire
To remove desire, follow the eight-fold path.

Eightfold path: 

Right knowledge..understand four noble truths
Right thinking..decide to set life on the correct path
Right speech..don't lie,criticize others unjustly,no harsh language,no gossip
