Have you ever wondered if there was a way you could speed up your spiritual development? I’m sure you know of some people who are so peaceful and serene that nothing seems to bother them. The secret of their success is actually quite simple. They’ve figured out what works, and they do it consistently.
Why the Slow Progress?
The reason many of us have trouble with our spiritual development is because we don’t avail ourselves of some simple tools that can be tremendously effective. In Buddhism, they have what is called the Noble Eightfold Path. If you’re not familiar with them, these are essentially basic practices that will help us achieve enlightenment, or freedom from suffering.
