"Life is like the tide," writes Venerable Master Hsing Yun, "rising and falling with its pluses and minuses." Some changes are for the better, so they are easy to accept. But even changes for the worse--"minuses"--have their place. The Master writes, "we do not get a plus where there is no minus." In the essays in this book, the Master demonstrates with warmth and wisdom how to put the Buddha's teachings into practice in order to be a positive force in the world. He writes about the potential of "one seed," and how hardship and sickness can be vehicles for a better life. With fascinating illustrations and tidbits of historical fact, the Master weaves together modern life and ancient wisdom into a fabric of challenge and encouragement.
