Philosophical Phun-Eightfold Path :o)

The Eightfold Path
The Eightfold Path illustrates the moral principles in which all Buddhists should practice. It goes into detail about the basis of all Buddhist teachings: morality, meditation, and wisdom. This is the eightfold path:
  1. Right Knowledge
  2. Right Thinking
  3. Right Speech
  4. Right Conduct
  5. Right Livelihood
  6. Right Effort
  7. Right Mindfulness
  8. Right Concentration
Following the Noble Eightfold Path helps a person realize that greed and selfishness cause all earthly suffering. With this new understanding, one’s suffering may end.

I love investigating new ways of thinking, there is always a nugget of wisdom to be gained.

  1. And I am interested... thanks for the link!

  2. There's apparently more to Buddhism than I thought.

  3. I try and try to follow the tenets of Buddhism, though sometimes it's hard.
    As I've always said, my mantra for life is to "want the things I have, not have the things I want."

  4. just ____ right! (insert verb of choice)

    this pretty much sums up my philosophy on life and other stuff.


  5. I love it! I have the eightfold path taped to my work keyboard so I will remember whom I want to be.

  6. As you said, there is always a nugget to gain, but it is gained only if I pay attention.
    From South Georgia where Summer fishing is foolish! HA!
    So today I loved the fish I purchased and ate so forgot about the ones I did not catch.

  7. My younger daughter is a practicing Tibetan Buddhist. I will have to ask her about this. Wisdom abounds.

  8. Ken, as you know Buddhism is one of the spiritual paths that I use to connect to myself and the rest of the universe. Love the post.:)
