For many lifetimes we have ignored our potential for awakening and have followed instead our ego’s demands.

There is a time, however, when it becomes clear that our selfish pursuits have led us only to boredom, anxiety, and frustration.

Then we may begin to look for more lasting satisfaction, and this search may lead us to the Dharma, the Buddha’s teachings.
