"Whether you like it or not, if you know it or not,
from within, the whole of nature reaches after God."

Meister Eckhart von Hochheim

Meister Eckhart of Hochheim was severely attacked for the mystical concepts expressed in his sermons.

This was far worse for humanity than the condemnation of Galileo Galilei.

An inquisitorial process was ordered in 1326 which found 150 heresies.

In Avignon, Pope John XXII seems to have set up two tribunals to inquire into the case, one of theologians and the other of cardinals.

The commissions reduced the 150 suspect articles down to 28; the document known as the Votum Avenionense gives, in scholastic fashion, the twenty-eight articles, Eckhart's defence of each, and the rebuttal of the commissioners.

Shortly after Eckhart died Pope John XXII issued a bull (In agro dominico), 27 March 1329, in which a series of statements from Eckhart was characterized as heretical.

"We tried to have the censure lifted on Eckhart and were told that there was really no need since he had never been condemned by name, just some propositions which he was supposed to have held, and so we are perfectly free to say that he is a good and orthodox theologian." - Timothy Radcliffe, Master of the Dominicans

"Only 28 propositions were censured, but they were taken out of their context and impossible to verify, since there were no manuscripts in Avignon." - Winfried Trusen of Würzburg

In Meister Eckhart we find religion expressed in its purest form, a form which goes back in its spiritual experience to the mystical roots of Gnostic Christianity.

The Roman Catholic church could have compared Meister Eckhart theology with the writings of the early church fathers, especially with the Alexandrian fathers.

Unfortunately some of Alexandrian fathers were branded heretics during certain periods by the Roman Catholic church as well.

The Roman Catholic church condemned Meister Eckhart because mysticism was a threat to its very survival .

Meister Eckhart taught communion with the Creator and Sustainer.

The Roman Catholic church felt Meister Eckhart mysticism alienated the believer from the hierarchy of the church.

Redemption was not dependent on Roman Catholic church membership and rituals, but on the desire of the believer to enter a close relationship with the Creator and Sustainer.

Without the need of intercessors their would be no need of the Roman Catholic church.

Meister Eckhart never attacked the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic church, unlike Athbhreith Athbheochan, the Kwisatz Haderach Druid.

Eckhart, in tune with the teachings of Jesus and the ancient wisdom of Jesus obliterated through the centuries wanted mankind to find God within.

Finding God within is experiencing your personal god.

Everyone who can realize this becomes a son or a daughter of the Creator.

The Creator and Sustainer emanates compassion and beauty into Creation, because the Creator and Sustainer cannot do otherwise.

Words of Meister Eckhart von Hochheim:

The Creator and Sustainer is eternally the changeless One.

God is the Word that must be spoken.

The Word of God emanates and yet remains changeless.

All creatures emanate from God and yet remain within God.

God is in all things. God is within, yet God remains without.

The mystic feels the Creator and Sustainer within.

God is felt to be still, pure, blissful, apart and yet not apart from all.

The mystic knows the Creator and Sustainer is the essence of the mystery.

God lives in the depth of the Soul, of substance and yet not of substance.

This is a personal experience in the mystic's consciousness revealing the relationship between substance, Soul and Creator.

A mystic sees this relationship in all creatures and in all creation, because he sees that all things are of 'substance and soul', of matter and consciousness.

All things emanate from the Creator and all things return to the Source.

The ultimate goal of all creation is to rest again in the arms of the Creation.

Tremendous comfort is given to those who fuse with Creation.

An Eternal Soul, inherent within Creation, carries a divine spark of the Creator and Sustainer within its innermost kernel which allows it to fuse.

The Creator enlivens the Eternal Soul through this divine spark.

The task of man is not to search without himself for happiness but to search within to find where this divine spark lives.

Leave senses behind, follow the divine spark, the source of happiness.

The Eternal Soul, the most glorious part of Creation, is conscious of the knowledge that it rests within the Creator.

This can only be because the innermost kernel, the divine spark of the Creator and Sustainer is a part of the Eternal Soul.

An entirely unconditioned Soul is released with ecstatic divine fire.

The soul can only be free and unconditioned if it is not enslaved by the senses and the outside world.

In the soul's spiritual growth the soul must become detached from all outward conditions.

It does so by spiritual exercises, which train the soul to look inward.

This does not mean that the soul can block all external impressions and stimuli, the natural condition of the Eternal Soul will not allow it to do so, but it learns to be unmoved and unshaken by them.

The Soul becomes invulnerable and unconquerable by the outside world.

Nothing from outside can harm the Eternal Soul anymore as contact with the divine spark within is supplying regenerative energy all the time.

The Eternal Soul now rests in the center of divine calmness.

Spiritual perfection can only be reached by surrendering ego to God.

Only after surrendering ego to God will we be able to attain fusion.

In the beginning the mystical aspirant will feel pain when he tries to tear himself away from the physical world of desire.

At the end of the mystical path he becomes like a rock unshaken by the raging blasts of the stormy ocean.

The most difficult thing for the soul is to separate itself from is its own self-consciousness.

An individual must be free from the world of unnatural desire in order to live within the Kingdom of Heaven.

"The quieter the mind, the more powerful, the worthier, the deeper, the more telling and more perfect the prayer is." - Meister Eckhart

The Eternal Soul, having roots in the Creator and Sustainer and is being born innocent and fresh constantly.

The Creator and Sustainer has a living dynamic counterpart which evolves in history and lets Himself be known in the Eternal Soul.

Jesus the Tekton, an Avatar, was sent to light the path.

Every human must become like Jesus to fulfil the mission of Jesus.

Gnosis offers the esoteric knowledge to every human everywhere,
day in day out, a knowledge not affected by time, place or culture.

find the key to your soul within your heart

We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self.

It is a way of bitter suffering.

But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible.

And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world, yet undisturbed by its multiplicity, for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.” ~ Hermann Hesse

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
