I don't need to resolve conflicts with other belief systems and pretend they are reflections of my own.
I don't claim that my beliefs are consistent with or an application of Christianity if in fact they conflict with scriptures. I don't claim that my beliefs are consistent with or an application of Buddhism if they exclude major themes, like suffering or attachement. I certainly wouldn't claim that Christianity and Buddhism are the same.
I will take you at your word that you manifest things in your life. But I will also take Warren Buffett, Jesus Christ, and Buddha at their words - ALL of their words, not just the ones I like. I don't have a problem with "conflict" between beliefs or accepting the diversity of belief - you, on the other hand, decided that because I have success, I must have manifested it, regardless of whether I, who created that success, may have experienced.
