The Eightfold Path in Everyday Life (Infographic)

I don't consider myself a Buddhist, but I read a lot about Buddhism on my journey toward living more mindfully.   One of the concepts that resonates the most for me is the "eight-fold path," which is a way of conceptualizing the different facets of a compassionate life.

There are some questions that I ask myself periodically to see if I'm straying from my path.  I decided to share them in the following infographic in the hope that you'll find them useful, too.

Note: This is my own perspective on the eightfold path and how I try to apply it in my daily life. If you're looking for an explanation of the eightfold path in more traditional Buddhist terms, I recommend the one by John Allan at BuddhaNet.
