In a brilliantly appropriate application of the Buddha's fourfold Truths, Darrin Drda provides a conceptual structure for perceiving the unique nature of this planetary moment. He also shows us how to play with this structure, climbing around on it with uninhibited curiosity, and exploring ways to integrate the darkness and the light... The book brings such a rich cargo of companionable inquiry and inspiration, I want to see it in every bookbag and backpack. I love to think of the hands it will fall into, the minds it will ignite, the hearts it will embolden, so that this great adventure may continue!

With a warm and open writing style, and drawing from his extensive knowledge of Buddhism and the ecological state of the planet, Darrin Drda gives expression to some of the noble possibilities of human consciousness. The Four Global Truths is destined to become an essential part of the ongoing illumination of this wild, groping, confused, but ultimately beautiful human species.

This book allows us to see that humanity's current condition is in fact, a larger-scale manifestation of Buddha's Four Noble Truths and what the Buddha knewthat we are in a dream of attachment, and that we need to wake up and free ourselves from this dream that is robbing us of our true capacity as human beings. Fortunately, the Buddha offered a path to liberation, one that is now possible for humanity as well. This magnificent book powerfully invites us to choose that path.
