You probably know this as the Four Noble Truths, but more then twenty years ago the philologist K.R. Like all great inventors, the Buddha was followed by a string of entrepreneurs who made his teachings first into a religion, then a philosophy. Dependency on analytical thinking leads us to confuse the syntax of language with the nature of reality.
I so, totally agree with your statement and find myself getting tired of opinions, views and angles. We just seem to have too much time, too many choices, and too much security to get on with life. This is what I have concluded after reading, cognizing, feeling, introspecting, believing, theorizing, experiencing and living…. To substantiate such a statement I stipulate that anything,… ANYTHING that occupies the mind’s conscious aspect is enough to give life meaning, from the momentary to the permanent, from the valuable to the worthless, from attraction to avoidance, from pain to pleasure. Therefore, as we cannot abolish MIND, the next best thing is… Understanding the software (mindfulness) running the input (experience) no matter what the latter is.
Our advantage over the other animals lies in our potential to change our habitual responses.
Are you defending the Buddha, who surely needs no defense, or are you simply intolerant of those who see him differently from you? Orison Swett Marden (1850 - 1924) was an American writer associated with the New Thought Movement.
When Orison was seven years old, his father died from injuries incurred while in the wood, and the children were shuttled from one guardian to another, with Orison working as a "hired boy" to earn his keep. Inspired by an early self-help book by the Scottish author Samuel Smiles, which he found in an attic, Marden set out to improve himself and his life circumstances. Marden supported himself during his college years by working in a hotel and afterward by becoming the owner of several hotels and a resort.
He founded Success Magazine in 1897 and was also a regular contributor to Elizabeth Towne's New Thought magazine Nautilus during the first two decades of the 20th century. Like many proponents of the New Thought philosophy, Marden believed that our thoughts influence our lives and our life circumstances. Yet although he is best known for his books on financial success, he always emphasized that this would come as a result of cultivating one's personal development: "The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. Dyer was a psychotherapist and a professor before helming his own self-help empire, but perhaps the most important credential one can have when being in the business of inspiring people and instructing how to pick one’s self up by their bootstraps and to achieve is to have done just that themselves.
Born in Detroit in 1940, Dyer grew up an orphan, an experience that molded a self-reliance as well as an aversion to self-pity. After a stint in the Navy, Dyer pursued an education in counseling, graduating with advanced degrees from Wayne State University.

He stayed busy until the very end, doling out pithy nuggets of wisdom to his Twitter followers (‘chasing success is like trying to squeeze a handful of water. For modern readers of the Pali Canon (the earliest Buddhist record) he comes across as a practical man with little interest in doctrines and theories. That’s why disillusioned and doubtful Buddhists eventually turn to the early records of Buddhism, seeking something less contrived. Conventional life encourages us with its intermittent pleasures but leaves no lasting satisfaction, he said.
To approach life without convenient, consoling rationalizations is to go against everything that makes us special. When you take Buddhism as an ideology, the Buddha’s practical instructions get mangled into nonsense about us not really existing, or into metaphysical fantasies about some Ultimate Reality. Remember when you were a freshman, babbling polysyllabic words, pretending you weren’t a dumb kid any more? I tip my hat to the scholars who make obscure texts available to us, but scholarship is just a means to an end. No other life form thus far has exhibited such an angst towards existence as such – proof of this is in the constant changes we bring to our environment without ever reaching an enchanted sense of self-sufficiency, as one era’s Utopia becomes the following one’s redundancy. I imagine, if he were alive today and seeking the largest possible audience, that he might very well dress like this.
When he was three years old, his mother died at the age of 22, leaving Orison and his two sisters in the care of their father, a farmer, hunter, and trapper.
Financial reverses ended that career, and in 1893, he was again working as a hotel manager, in Chicago, during the time that the World's Columbian Exposition was attracting visitors to that city from all over the world. He followed this with several more volumes on the subjects of success, the cultivation of will-power, and positive thinking.
It’s a rarity to find anything penned by someone with a truly unique and insightful perspective.
Dyer dies at 75A posting on Dyer's Facebook page said: "Wayne has left his body, passing away through the night. He was big on self-reliance and encouraged people to seek freedom by examining their own experience. The more sophisticated our answers to the Big Questions, the more inconclusive they become. I hate the flimsiness of the New Age as much as you, but I also hate the pretensions of those who invoke the Ancients as if they were a master race. I especially admire those who can function within a tradition without being buried alive in rules and deep theory, who lead with a practical edge. By admitting our plight and relinquishing our pretensions, we can step out of this double-bind.

The Image of Buddha only speaks about wisdom, truth and infinity of human life and possibility of all existence.
It was during this period that he began to write down his philosophical ideas, with the goal of inspiring others as he had been inspired by Samuel Smiles. He always said he couldn't wait for this next adventure to begin and had no fear of dying.Post to FacebookSelf-help guru Wayne W. This thinking tool that bulges behind our eyes is hugely powerful and addictive, no matter that we assign it mostly trivial tasks. The point is to put the method to work; to transform the way we experience ourselves and treat others. Much of what you do find is encrusted and embellished by the writer and their slant or bias.
Incredibly well thought out, Manson’s writing is consistently eye-opening, offering new ways to look at issues we all face, including love, success, stress and more. In fact, a little honest introspection might reveal that they’re meant to sweep our angst under the carpet. You don’t have to agree with everything he says but I think what he is doing is very very useful. It’s a shame that so many Buddhists need a scriptural reference before they’ll accept anything. He has traveled the world speaking to thousands of people and is currently hard at work on a new book, when he is not penning articles for his site. Sadder still, even though Batchelor actually provides such a reference, he remains widely ignored. But I spent an inordinate amount of time on online forums and sites writing book-long posts and getting carried away with myself. Then, a few years later, I branched out and wrote about men’s self development in general. They are just ones that were the most important to me or that I’m particularly proud of the writing.
