One of the things we all deal with in life is a bit of suffering. It happens to everybody and there’s nothing we can do to stop it. But the important question is: do we have the power to transform that suffering into happiness?
It’s one of the tenants of Buddhism and the idea behind the new book, “The Misleading Mind: How We Create Our Own Problems and How Buddhist Psychology Can Help Us Solve Them” by psychotherapist and practicing Buddhist Karuna Cayton.
Karuna tells us even the Dalai Lama says he enjoys problems because it’s actually by engaging with problems that we’re able to become happier and healthier
We’re going to have problems, whether we like it or not, Karuna says, but this is about creating a different relationship with problems. They don’t go away by ignoring them or fighting with them; they go away by engaging with them and getting the upper hand on them.
He explains how to stop being reactive and start being proactive. Plus, find out how the years he spent researching this book in Nepal taught him that there are many ways to look at realities.
Karuna also explains how each and everyone of us has the power to take control of our own happiness.
