all nature seeks God and works towards God

The ultimate and highest leave

taking is leaving God for GOD,

leaving your notion of God for an

experience of that
which transcends all notions.


If I were alone in a desert and feeling afraid,

I would want a child to be with me.

For then my fear would disappear and

I would be made strong.

This is what life in itself can do because it is so noble,

so full of pleasure and so powerful.

But if I could not have a child with me

I would like to have an animal at my side to comfort me.

Therefore, let those who bring about wonderful things

in their big, dark books take an animal to help them.

The life within the animal will give them strength in turn.

For equality gives strength, in all things and at all times.


Meister Eckhart



"If you see the Buddha on your way, kill him."
Lin Chi

ringing the bell

"Lin Chi means you have an idea of Buddha that prevents you from having a direct experience of Buddha. You are caught by an object of perception, and the only way for you to free yourself and experience the Buddha is to kill your notion of the Buddha." - Thich Nhat Hanh

"It is almost inevitable that most of us will experience in this lifetime a crisis of faith, which may or may not be explicitly religious in character. It makes little difference what religion we are brought up in, because the crisis will find and obliterate whatever order, purpose, or meaning we assign to the universe, so that we may be reborn into a new understanding of purpose that contains and supersedes the old. Even if we return to the religion of our childhood, it is at a wholly new level of understanding." - Charles Eisenstein





JOHANNES ECKART
(Meister Eckhart, in English Master Eckhart)

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

Meister Eckhart of Hochheim, was condemned by the Roman Catholic church for expressing heretical views concerning theology. Only in this 21st century was the bull in agro domini, in which Meister Eckhart was severely attacked on a number of mystical concepts expressed in his sermons, officially withdrawn. This was worse for humanity than the condemnation of Galileo Galilei.

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 his mysticism was a threat to the very survival of the Roman Catholic church. Meister Eckhart's taught communion with the Creator and Sustainer. The Roman Catholic church believed Meister Eckhart 's mysticism alienated the Roman Catholic believer from the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic church, because in Meister Eckhart's theology 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 yours truly.

Meister Eckhart considered his teachings to be wholly in tune with the teachings of Jesus.

Meister Eckhart must be given credit for having seen the ancient wisdom of Jesus, which has been obliterated through the centuries.

Meister Eckhart, like Jesus, was a mystic by nature, who wanted mankind to find the Creator and Sustainer in themselves. Everyone who can realize this becomes a son or a daughter of the Creator and Sustainer.

To Meister Eckhart the Creator and Sustainer emanates power, compassion and beauty into creation, because the Creator and Sustainer cannot do otherwise. 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.

The Word of God is such a great wonder. 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 himself . The Creator and Sustainer is felt to be still, pure, blissful, apart and yet not apart from all.

The mystic feels the Creator and Sustainer is the essence of the mystery. For the Creator and Sustainer lives in the depth of the mystic's soul, a soul which is of substance and yet not of substance. This is a personal experience in the mystic's consciousness about the relationship between his substance, his soul and the Creator and Sustainer.

The mystic sees this same 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 Sustainer and all things wish to return to their Source. The ultimate goal of all creation is to rest again in the arms of the Creator and Sustainer.

Tremendous comfort is given to the individual who makes fusion with the Creator and Sustainer his goal. Fusion rests on the fact that the human soul is part of creation, comes from the Creator and Sustainer and has the Creator and Sustainer as its innermost kernel, a divine spark.

The Creator and Sustainer, prominently alive, enlightens the human soul through the divine spark.

The task of man is not to search without himself for happiness but to search within where this divine spark lives. Meister Eckhart suggests man leave his senses behind and grasp the divine spark, the source of all goodness and happiness.

The Eternal Soul is the most glorious part of the Creator and Sustainer's creation as it is conscious of the knowledge that the Creator and Sustainer rests within it. The soul's search is answered when the soul becomes conscious of the Creator and Sustainer, desire that God is all powerful, feels the blissful force of God residing in the self's soul. Not only does the soul know this, but it feels and experiences fusion!

This can only be because the innermost kernel, the divine spark of the Creator and Sustainer is a part of the soul. Realization of the Creator and Sustainer can only grow from the divine spark into an ecstatic divine fire, setting the whole soul into a divine glow, if the soul is entirely free and unconditioned.

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, because contact with the divine spark within is supplying regenerative energy all the time. In the center is divine calmness, so the soul will regain this calmness every time.

Meister Eckhart claimed that spiritual perfection can only be reached by surrendering the self to God. This is the most important step to take. Only after surrendering our own will completely to God will we be able to attain fusion with God. If we let God's divine spark become a divine fire in our soul then the great undescribable glory of the One without comparison fills our whole being.

We start to laugh with joy.

We feel complete, content and satisfied.

We know that now at last we do know.

We have finally reached our destiny, because now we understand.

Now we have come again to were we came from.

God is giving birth constantly. Not only physically in nature which surrounds us, but also spiritually, in the inner soul of everything alive. The Creator and Sustainer does not stop being the Creator after physical birth.

The Creator and Sustainer goes on and on in renewal.

In the beginning the mystical aspirant will feel pain when he tries to tear himself away from the physical world of desire, because he is so conditioned by it. 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.

In the words of Meister Eckhart this means that a person must be free from the physical world of desire in order to live in the kingdom of God. A human must become a stranger to the physical world of desire. His conversations must be with the Creator and Sustainer. He must live an internal life separate from desire.

After being granted a professorship in Cologne, Meister Eckhart was accused of being a heretic. During the investigative process Meister Eckhart was ordered to the papal court at Avignon were he died.



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


The Creator and Sustainer is to be found deep in the Eternal Soul.

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

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

The Creator and Sustainer is a force residing in the heart of the universe and is so transcendent that the Creator and Sustainer can never be defined in our limited modes of thinking and perceiving.

The Creator and Sustainer has a living dynamic counterpart which evolves in history and lets Himself be known in the Eternal Soul. The Creator and Sustainer sent Jesus the Tekton, as an Avatar, to light our path

This mystic way of 'seeing' the Creator and Sustainer offers the same knowledge to every human everywhere, a knowledge not affected by time, place and 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 (Jamie Richard)

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 created 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 condemning 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.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
