Are you aware of niggling dissatisfaction, no matter how perfect your life? Do you try to fix your life, or yourself, so that the undercurrent of “something wrong” isn’t there? Do you make choices that are supposed to give you what you want but leave you feeling unfulfilled and disappointed? Do you wonder why that is so? This book gives you the answer!
       The Big Bamboozle reveals what keeps us in dissatisfaction and stops us from choosing happiness and joy. Based on the Buddha’s teachings and Zen Awareness Practice, this book explores through essays and practical exercises how we are conned out of the life we want. Order your copy today.
