I probably picked up the book the first time because of its intriguing title. I came to understand that the book was Kopp's explanation of the psychotherapy model he uses. In his title, the "Buddha" is the one with all the answers. The psychotherapist does not. He is just like the patient, someone looking for answers and for a journey into self. Using ancient literature, especially from Jewish sources, the guides the reader and patients to the most powerful and dangerous journey of all. The journey into self.
I still find that it takes me about half a year to get through the book each time. The first time I read it, I stayed awake all night reading, and subsequently, I've read it again several times in a day or two or have taken months to read. It's always rewarding.
This book gave me clarity on my life and a new perspective as well. Upon completion of this book, I immediately started making adjustments in my life to follow the book's suggestion. I'll leave you with this, trust yourself and no one else, after all, as an adult you're your best teacher as a "grown up". Simply put, "If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him!
Thank you to the TV show "Fringe" for exposing me to this book so happy to have read it. Great book and an even better life changing read! Happy Reading!!!
