Description: In this unique and utterly novel presentation, David Loy explores the fascinating proposition that the stories we tell-about what is and is not possible, about ourselves, about right and wrong, life and death, about the world and everything in it-become the very building blocks of our experience and of the universe itself. Loy uses an intriguing mixture of quotations from familiar and less-familiar sources and brief standalone micro-essays, and engages both the reader and himself in challenging and illuminating dialogue. As we come to see that the world is made-in a word-of stories, we come to a richer understanding of that most elusive of Buddhist ideas: shunyata, the "generative emptiness", that is the very essence of our ever-evolving world, and is responsible for the vast array of mental and physical forms. Reminiscent of Zen koans and works of sophisticated poetry, this book will reward both a casual read and deep reflection.
