Do you, or have you ever felt sad?

No matter who you may be, I can only imagine the answer to that question is yes.

(Unless, of course, you’re Brian Cox’s wife…)

Unfortunately there is no ‘cure’ for sadness but here are four simple steps one may take into releasing yourself from the suffering…

Step 1: Realise that you are sad.

Step 2: Work out the cause of this sadness.

Step 3: Realise that there is a solution to this cause.

And step 4: Work out how to solve the cause.

It seems logical enough, right?

Just work out which step you are at now and follow the next steps- easy.

What you may not have realised is that these ‘steps’ are actually a simplified recitation of the ‘Four Nobel Truths’ believed  as part of the Buddhist faith.

I’m far from a crazy religious nut but I think, these ‘truths’ are the most logical and applicable beliefs in all of religion, which is why I have put them forward to you today 🙂
