Four Noble Truths

Eastern wisdom reveals an all-encompassing perspective of the human journey. This view involves four noble truths which help to ease suffering and enhance peace of mind. The first noble truth is that life inevitably includes suffering and difficulty. Anytime we resist difficulties in life, we create discord within leading to imbalance and added tension. As a result, we are out of sync with the reality of the moment, thereby creating extra suffering for ourselves. In contrast, if we surrender to life’s challenges and bring love and compassion to our experience, without adding any negative energy, peace is more likely to arise.
