Must the Upanishads be 'difficult'? Actually, they are rather plain and direct. They do not construct any complex system of ideas and beliefs. Nor do they build up any elaborate picture of the world. Instead, in some what brief and uncompromising language, they ask what is plainly and simply true: beneath all the complications of our uncertain beliefs.

As a result, the Upanishads were kept traditionally secret and inaccessible. They were hidden behind a forbidding reputation: as teaching an esoteric and mystical doctrine, to be kept away from all but a few special initiates.

I really love the succinct way you write about living positively regardless of the circumstances of your life. Believing in the new age prosperity thinking (along with some bad luck) led me down a bigtime abyss of depression to the point of contemplating suicide. Thankfully that is behind me now. I made a mistake, and now truly value the power of realism and living positively. -- Kathy

By
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 42,500. Language: English. Published: January 2, 2015. Category: Nonfiction » Psychology » Mental health
This installment argues that "The Secret" is emblematic of the greater social milieu we are finding ourselves in at this time. For this reason I isolated it as a particularly good example of how similar frauds are conveyed. It shows how easily we may unknowingly give away our power to quacks and con-men. That's if we fail to think critically, instead to abandon our sanity to reckless delusion.
