Eagle Literary Foundation was founded by Mark Butler when moving to Eagle, Idaho from Boulder City, Nevada in 1994. At very early ages both Mark questioned the so-called standard of ordinary living, bothered by its lack of real, lasting solidity and security. Mark says, “The Foundation is dedicated to helping people from all walks of life to understand how to lead inwardly healthier, happier, and stress free lives.”
Over the past 20 years Mark has authored several articles and has spoken at seminars throughout the United States.
“The Eagle Literary Foundation has become a way for people from Boise and Western Ada County to meet and discuss topics as grand as the meaning of life and as relevant as how to cope with anger in traffic congestion.”
Valley Times Interview with Mark Butler:
“What we are trying to do is break habitual behaviors, but first there has to be an awareness of being pained or at a dead end before there is a genuine incentive to break them. If we are satisfied with subduing our pain by becoming one of the many ‘holics,’ that is, a workaholic, an alcoholic, or even a spiritual-aholic, there’s no valid interest in finding out about our inner-self so as to experience the inwardly free and happy life we were intended to live.
We practice, for example, breaking the nagging thoughts that take over and won’t let us sleep. Or as an exercise, we take a week and watch for painful emotions like anger and we deliberately work to ‘Catch and Break’, catch a thought or emotion and break it, drop it.
The whole purpose is to live more happily and healthfully.”
Of millions of people, only a few in a state of vague dissatisfaction will sense deep within, that their hearts yearn for a different kind of life.These few people may not appear to be "unhappy". They may be leading very active lives, be well off and comfortably situated physically, but they will feel that beyond the routine of ordinary existence there must be SOMETHING ELSE!
