    Greetings all who were curious enough to click on my little thread :)

    I was just browsing and found a wonderful Buddhist site called "Lion's Roar".

    It has a load of free content - I have only read a fraction of it so far ...

    Here's one by Thich Nhat Hanh -

    We all want to be happy and there are many books and teachers in the world that try to help people be happier.

    Yet we all continue to suffer.

    Therefore, we may think that we’re “doing it wrong.” Somehow we are “failing at happiness.” That isn’t true. Being able to enjoy happiness doesn’t require that we have zero suffering. In fact, the art of happiness is also the art of suffering well. When we learn to acknowledge, embrace, and understand our suffering, we suffer much less. Not only that, but we’re also able to go further and transform our suffering into understanding, compassion, and joy for ourselves and for others.

    To read the suggestions -
