Into the Haunted Ground (Part 3)

A Guide to Cutting the Root of Suffering

“Some religious teachings have a negative attitude toward our imperfections, encouraging us to suppress or eradicate them with an antagonistic attitude. Such an approach can have its downside. Western psychology has provided some methods to overcome mental struggles. If not for it, there would be much more craziness in this world. Being secular, psychology allows us to deal with our suffering through our own power instead of relying on a higher power. Therefore, it works pretty much for everyone regardless of their background. Undoubtedly, psychology has its own merit. Yet sometimes it is lacking in its ability to bring about radical and immediate inner liberation.”
