The Buddha on Attachment Jack Kornfield

With his usual warmth and clarity Kornfield discusses the path of coming to consciousness: of opening to what really is and surrendering the small-minded grasping that ties us to the suffering of not having our wishes fulfilled completely and eternally. The teachings of the Buddha - the Four Noble Truths - point the way to equanimity and compassion; realizing the interconnection we basically have with the world and each other dissolves the illusion of separateness at the heart of unhealthy attachment. A good statement of simple but profound truths about living well in the world.
