If I Meet Sheldon B. Kopp on the Road, I will Kill Him! . Don't be biased like I was after seeing the "The Pilgrimage of Psychotherapy Patients" in the title and the continuous mention of "in therapy" throughout the book.

If I Meet Sheldon B. Kopp on the Road, I will Kill Him! That's what I thought when I was halfway through the If You Meet the Buddha on the Road Kill Him. Towards the end though it completely changed my perspective.

Furthering through perseverance. Nothing should be undertaken It furthers one to appoint helpers. I Ching In every age, men have set out on pilgrimages, on spiritual journeys, on personal quests.

Kill the Buddha" doesn't mean the Buddha is bad or wrong. It means you don't need him anymore. Use the truths AND untruths of teachings to help you find your own truths. Then let go of the teachings. Then kill the Buddha.

I talk often of death, of his death and mine, and of the deaths of the people we love. There is no meaning. It's a random universe, and time is short. It slips even as he wastes it complaining, feeling sorry for himself, trying to be special, to be compensated for his misfortunes.

Comments to eBook If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him! The Pilgrimage of Psychotherapy Patients

It is rather arbitrary to put a finish date on this book because I read it through almost every year. I have the Kindle version, and I dip into it whenever I have a few minutes waiting for some event. This book saved my life. I began reading Kopp in 1984 as part of a personal therapy pilgrimage. His wisdom in facing the issues that plague most of us led me to some of my most profound examination of my life.

I probably picked up the book the first time because of its intriguing title. I came to understand that the book was Kopp's explanation of the psychotherapy model he uses. In his title, the "Buddha" is the one with all the answers. The psychotherapist does not. He is just like the patient, someone looking for answers and for a journey into self. Using ancient literature, especially from Jewish sources, the guides the reader and patients to the most powerful and dangerous journey of all. The journey into self.

I still find that it takes me about half a year to get through the book each time. The first time I read it, I stayed awake all night reading, and subsequently, I've read it again several times in a day or two or have taken months to read. It's always rewarding.

Unfortunately, this isn't a book you can explain to others. I will say this, if you have the slightest curiosity, I suggest you read this book; however, you must follow this book closely and pay attention to its narrative in order to grasp its full meaning. Moreover, you should access your ability to read between the lines, so as to thoroughly understand it. You may need to read other pieces of literature because Mr. Kopp references other materials to make his point. For example, he uses Dante's Inferno in his book and if you don't know the meaning behind that poem you'll miss the point Mr. Kopp's trying to make.

This book gave me clarity on my life and a new perspective as well. Upon completion of this book, I immediately started making adjustments in my life to follow the book's suggestion. I'll leave you with this, trust yourself and no one else, after all, as an adult you're your best teacher as a "grown up". Simply put, "If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him!

Thank you to the TV show "Fringe" for exposing me to this book so happy to have read it. Great book and an even better life changing read! Happy Reading!!!

I read this because "Peter" from the TV show "Fringe" said it was his favorite book and I really ended up liking it. Great stories and insights. Very Zen in a non-traditional way.
Bolanim
Despite some paradoxes in the eschatological laundry list at the end. The book is absolute caramel for the troubled mind. I love the Zen input and the insight into our collective psyche. It is a keeper. Don't lend it to anyone who doesn't understand the term "boomerang".

I've used this as my "bible" reference every morning. Some sage advice.

S. Kopp’s text is written as a therapist to a friend. The tone is subtle but direct. The premise is this: along life’s path one must arrive at their own truth. Siddhartha’s life journey is the spine of the narrative. Given how society has moved from reality to virtuality, Kopp’s text is even mite relevant today than penned ~ 20 yrs ago.

From the description of the book, I expected much more; however, it's worth the price just for the last chapter.
I love this book. It is a powerhouse of self-reliance without being overbearing.
