Those who make an "abundant" living repackaging spiritual truths (ah, the power of marketing, which no one ever admits being under!) have failed the test of Jesus and Buddha, all the holy men of myth -- they have traded the hard life of God for the peace of death.
The story of Buddah is a corrupt retelling of the christian story. Buddah's father is God, the father, who provides everything. Buddah turns away from the father, as man turns away from Eden in Genesis. He turns into a beggar and chooses death. Yet his father keeps reminding him that he is a prince.
