An honest Buddhist is a contradiction in terms.

some may say.

It has been my experience.

    “Buddhist”.
    On dictionary.com, I find this.
    Buddha nature is described as the true pure nature and emptiness of every being; the original nature present in all beings which when realized leads to enlightenment; also written Buddha-nature.
    Buddhism is a religion, originated in India by Buddha (Gautama) and later spreading to China, Burma, Japan, Tibet, and parts of southeast Asia, holding that life is full of suffering caused by desire and that the way to end this suffering is through enlightenment that enables one to halt the endless sequence of births and deaths to which one is otherwise subject.
    It seems as if a sequential path to end desire for rebirth could be had anywhere, like having a job. Realizing Buddha nature needs a pointing out, perhaps as a result of some sort of shock, like death or just a really bad migraine. That sudden, OH!
    I guess the path to happiness is something you find for yourself, this battle against all appearances aside.
