About the Author
Ezra Bayda has been meditating since 1970. He was authorized to teach Zen by Charlotte Joko Beck in 1998, and now lives, writes and teaches at the Zen Center of San Diego.
Josh Bartok has served as in-house staff editor at Wisdom for almost 13 years and has worked on almost 200 books in all traditions of Buddhism. He is the co-author, with Ezra Bayda, of "Saying Yes To Life (Even the Hard Parts)," and the authoring editor of "Daily Doses of Wisdom," "Daily Wisdom," "More Daily Wisdom," Lama Zopa Rinpoche's "How to Be Happy," and Lama Yeshe's "When the Chocolate Runs Out."
He is also head teacher and spiritual director at the Greater Boston Zen Center, and one of the guiding teachers of Boundless Way Zen. He is a full member of the Soto Zen Buddhist Association and the American Zen Teachers Association, and is a friend of the Lay Zen Teachers Association. Josh has served on the Board of Directors for the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, and on the planning committee of the first-ever Next-Generation Dharma Teachers event, part of the Mahasangha Gathering that took place at Garrison Institute in July of 2011.
Josh graduated from Vassar College in 1993 with a degree in cognitive science. Recreationally, Josh is an amateur photographer who shows locally and regionally. His work is influenced by John Daido Loori, Kaz Tanahashi, as well as sumi-e and abstract expressionist painters. His photos can be seen online at shobophoto.com.

"Your difficulties are not obstacles on the path, they are the path"
"Our efforts in practice will inevitably'fail'. We will have periods of aspiration and effort, followed by periods of resistance and apathy. Ups and downs in practice are predictable and inevitable. The countermeasure is simply to persevere."
The book is paradoxically reassuring, comforting but also challenging.
Equally wise observations reflect Bayda's views on conflict, work, relationships, illusions, sex, work, anger, blame and many other topics. This book inspired me to read more Ezra Bayda books and I was not disappointed. If you like this you should enjoy and be inspired by 'At Home in the Muddy Water' - a fine book. There is a touching review of this book by Ezra Bayda's daughter on the US Amazon site.

Having ways to bring attention to what's going on, even the hard parts that we might wish to avoid - but can't - is a great gift.
