    NOTE: THIS REVIEW WAS POSTED ON AMAZON: The Journey of Discovery: of a Nurturer of Independent Thought. By Maggie Philip on July 8, 2010 The author of `A Monk Without A Monastery' offers his personal quest, one of experience and study, as a refreshing facilitation; a nudge if you like, to assist his readers' own exploration of the important questions common to everyone. That is achieved by applying the most valuable of all freedoms, `Independent Thought.' By rigorous and confident examination, he demonstrates that faith based on truth can never be shaken. He does this by pointing out that the `oneness of truth' can be found at the heart of all faiths and is gloriously simple. To be a seeker is to ever expand awareness until fully aware that truth continually offers itself to you and comes from many and often diverse sources. That is the search that separates truth from stultifying indoctrination. This book ably presents Buddhist philosophy, not so much as a religious tool but as being... More > a natural humanistic process; one which sheds light on how well balanced individuals, regardless of background, can enhance their own journey through life by consciously choosing to pursue such a well balanced inquiry. The author wisely teaches that to accept, if not embrace suffering, is to begin to understand it and, as a result, celebrate where your path may lead. That, he tells us, is indeed the, `ultimate purpose of human existence.' -Maggie Winton Philip magilinc@gmail.com< Less
