How Would Buddha Think?: 1,501 Right-Intention Teachings for Cultivating a Peaceful Mind Read Online Free - “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.”
Every word and every action begins with a thought. Negative thoughts based in jealousy, greed, or hatred may seem harmless on the surface. After all, they’re only thoughts, right? But while thoughts are only in our head, they often betray our intentions, and can directly shape our actions. So, how can you overcome internal negativity and live more consciously?
In How Would Buddha Think?, best-selling author of 14,000 Things to Be Happy About, Barbara Ann Kipfer offers an insightful, modern take on the ancient teaching of Right Intention—an important tenet of the Buddhist Eightfold Path focused on the belief that our intentions drive our actions.
With this book as your guide, you’ll learn how to move past negative thoughts or ill will toward others and instead focus on altruism, purpose, and self-actualization—qualities needed to help you live a truly happy life.

I received this book as a First Read. It was ok but not the best book on Buddhist thinking or zen. It would've been better with more exposition rather than being a straight list of tips. It was, however, nice that they modernized the tenets to be relatable to today's world.
