(This is an idea for an article)
To reconstruct what actually the Buddha taught is quite a feat.
I have read many related books, practised meditation and lived the same spirit and experience of investigation the Buddha did.
I have been able to remove layer after layer of misleading and useless clutter and reach the core.
The result is shocking. If you don't feel shocked, it means that you are not interested or deny any interest.
It's definitely human not to want to revolutionize the way you think and see the world.
To wallow in the suffering you know so well may seem better than to face the unknown, the unusual and the uncommon of a fearless life.
