*We are the truth and the life.
*We are not responsible for how others react to our words.
*Our words are honey, it's others who turn them to poison.
*Nothing others do is because of you or your actions.
*Our only mission in life is to make ourselves happy.
I am Christian and I have definite reservations about and disagree these teachings - I consider the 1st to be blasphemy and the others to be just irresponsible - and contrary to the Bible. Taken as a whole, it seems these are principles of a belief system that instills a lack of personal integrity & dismisses the expectation of consequence and encourages insensitivity while teaching that it's all about "you". "You" are not to be blamed for anything. (Sort of a "Me" religion - if you will).
Which belief system (if any that you know of) teaches this sort of thing.... or is this a collection of teachings from different religions?

This is a little off-topic, but I have to address the following statement:
"That does sound very humanistic...very centered on self and what I want, what makes me happy and my own world."
As a Humanistic Buddhist, I have to say that this is NOT what humanistic means. Under the first entry in the Webster dictionary for "humanistic", it states: A devotion to the humanities. Look up "humanities", and it states: The quality or state of being humane
So, essentially, "humanistic" means devotion to helping others.
