Why do you suffer? Is there a purpose to your pain?These questions come up for all of us at some time, as they did for the Buddha 2,500 years ago.In his wisdom, he developed a way through suffering, which he called the Four Noble Truths, and he left us the Twelve Insights to guide us through them.

Using examples from his own life and those of his students, and the step-by-step process of the Twelve Insights, Phillip Moffitt shows us how we can walk through our suffering to a path of joy.First we learn to embrace suffering through the First Noble Truth.In the Second Noble Truth, we learn there is a way to stop clinging.The Third Noble Truth shows us cessation of suffering is possible.And the Fourth Noble Truth offers us the Noble Eightfold Path to happiness.

Pain and suffering come to all of us, and at times can feel overwhelming. But Moffitt gives us clear and compelling reasons to believe that these Twelve Insights are the way to handle suffering and create a life filled with joy.Though at times the path won’t be easy, there is hope that we can learn to live with our pain and still enjoy our dance with life.

A profoundly spiritual book, Dancing With Life is a must-read for all those who want to find deeper meaning in life.
