Suffering Is Optional: Three Keys to Freedom and Joy



If you are reading this, you have probably sensed that life doesn’t have to be such a struggle, that peace and clarity are available, and you are looking for information that can help you move in that  direction. The three keys – pay attention to everything, believe nothing, and don’t take anything personally – are practices that Cheri Huber has been teaching for many years.  These are not intellectual concepts, quickly grasped and then forgotten.  They are keys to compassionate awareness, guidelines along the path to freedom and joy. If you are ready to take that path, this book will show you how.
