I was walking in the garden the other day and I found a little booklet in the grass. It's called "Steps Toward Inner Peace", by Peace Pilgrim. I found several aspects of the booklet interesting. For one thing, it's written by a contemporary woman who says making money was easy for her. She chose to give up a conventional material pursuit in favor of a life spent trying to be happy and make others happy. The book is available on the web at this website: http://www.peacepilgrim.org/book/index.htm and it's free. Here's the summary:
I see similarities to Buddhism in these preparations, purifications and pursuits. And, similarly, Peace's approach to life appeals to me because it's a logical philosophy.
There you go. A little food for thought.
