In Memory of Steven Paul Jobs

Close

In memory of Steven Paul Jobs, here is a 1997 Apple advertisement that Steve Jobs narrated himself.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you cant do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Editor’s Note: Steve Jobs owed his widely recognized intuition and creativity to an absolute belief in the value of intuition and  his devotion to Zen Buddhism and eastern spiritual philosophies. He engaged in regular Zen Buddhist meditation practice.

Steven Paul Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) was an American entrepreneur, marketer, and an inventor who was the cofounder, chairman, and CEO of Apple, Inc.

According to Zen teacher Cheri Huber, we are conditioned to think that if we were only a little better in some way, we would be happy: “Life isn’t the way it should be and it’s my fault!”  But, Huber says, no amount of self-punishment will ever make us happy or bring us control over life’s problems. The help we are looking for is really found in self-acceptance and kindness toward ourselves. By simply allowing ourselves to be guided by our innate intelligence and generosity, which are our authentic nature, we are able to be compassionately present to what’s happening now…..

Jeffrey L. Broughton offers an annotated translation of the Whip for Spurring Students Onward Through the Chan Barrier Checkpoints (Changuan cejin), which he abbreviates to Chan Whip. This anthology, compiled by Yunqi Zhuhong (1535-1615), has served as a Chan handbook in both China and Japan since its publication in 1600. To characterize the Chan Whip as “late Ming Chan” is inaccurate-in fact, it is a survey of virtually the entirety of Chan literature, running from the late 800s (Tang dynasty) to about 1600 (late Ming). The Chan extracts, the bulk of the book, are followed by a short section of….
