I have longtime friends and associates who I’ve always known to be kind and thoughtful. Yet something happens to them at times when they are on Facebook, Twitter, or e-groups. They become bullies.

Zen Rising: 366 Sage Stories to Enkindle Your Days
Zen Rising is is a special collection of the most beloved teaching stories in the Zen tradition. They all trace back to the classical time when Sage and Seeker sat together and reflected on the inner truths these stories embodied. As the Quest for Awakening is intrinsic to the human experience, these tales are just as vibrant today as when they were first told.
For this book, the author selected the stories he uses in his teachings. Each of us is part Sage and part Seeker, part Scholar and part Fool. We find these aspects of ourselves mired in confusion, struggling with paradox, and ecstatic with flashes of enlightenment as page-by-page we take this Journey of Life.
