To Feed the Hungry Fish – Synopsis
Most of the human beings do not own their soul. Most of us even don’t know about that. The wild nature of us will dominate if we do not control it. In this book, I try to describe the nature of our mind and some of the ways we can train and control it. It will be far from completeness. I just want to fill the small part of it. Our world should be a better place to liven than in current situation if we are wise enough. The discussions in this book do not bond to any religion, belief, faith. I just want to present the different view of the existing world.
Chapter 1: Ten square miles area, discuss about the current setting of our world. I also give the example of the carnivorous fish inside the fish tank which resemble us.
Chapter 2: I will rob your hamburger; discuss the wild nature inside us if we are in certain situation. Our wild nature will not surface until certain condition is met.
Chapter 3: What do we need?; try to explain how sophisticated the human needs are. We demand more than we consume. And discuss about the level of our needs.
Chapter 4: Tricky self; discuss about our mind tricky behavior.
Chapter 5: Is seeing believing?; discuss what we see around are the truth or not. In some cases, we can see the truth only by wisdom eye.

The teachings of Buddha will be dominating my thoughts as I was born and raised in Buddhism society. But if the Buddha teachings are ocean, this book only can present a drop of water. Actually, controlling our inner self and desire does not bond to particular religion or philosophy. Every human can adopt the practice easily if he has an open heart. To build a better world, we don’t need to be saints or monk or priest or holy man, the ordinary person like you and me also can act. The world is counting on us.
