I swear the Earth shall surely be complete

to him or her who shall be complete,

The Earth remains jagged and broken only

to him or her who remains jagged and broken.

I swear there is no greatness

or power that does not emulate those of the Earth,

There can be no theory of any account

unless it corroborate the theory of the Earth,

No politics, song, religion,

behavior, or what not, is of account,

unless it compare with the amplitude of the Earth,

Unless it face the exactness, vitality, impartiality, rectitude of the Earth.

expressing the unexpressible

It seems that there will always be problems with expressing the unexpressible.

Buddhists call what I see as God "nothingness," which Europeans term void. Genghis Khan, a Tengri Shamanist, began each speech to his followers dedicated to the will of "the endless sky."

Genghis Khan's "endless sky" translation is incorrect if one thinks of the endless sky as empty. The endless sky is an analogous metaphor for the eternal transcendence of God. God set the Laws of Nature/ Laws of God and is the force that sustains our lives.

This is not some imaginary force but a very real force
that has acted in the physical realm and that continues to act in the physical realm.

Buddhists call this force/power "nothing" because God does not have a human voice.

Most of us take our religion as literal fact when young.

We, as youth, are unable to think in the abstract manner that is required
to even glimpse the reality of God and need something more "literal".

This may be fine in youth but becomes a problem when these conceptualizations are carried into adulthood.

Many religious teachers never make the leap from "literal" to metaphorical. They are "literally"
creating a regression to superstition as opposed to a progression toward universal enlightenment.

It is true that you can not get to God without understanding logos but to believe that the only path to God is defined by the current reigning theological authorities through a predefined and predetermined path as defined by currently reigning theological authorities is ridiculous. (theocratic absolutism!)

If, as a child, you were raised as a devout imperial Christian, a Talmudist or a Muslim this may be true for you. (Just because it is true for you, as your brain has already been conditioned to think in that manner, it does not mean that others can not find God through different pathways contrary to popular neo-evangelic myth!)

A compassionate God would not and could not condemn a man for the way in which God created him. (Now on the other hand those who practice tyranny must find convenient scapegoats - never the system always the individual - to blame for a cultures social ills. The practitioners of tyranny must use the social control mechanisms of division, fear, programming through "education," confusion through corrupt religion, propaganda and "antidepressants" to control popular thought.)

If God made a man with doubt how can God then condemn a man for those doubts?

One aspect of Islam that is absolutely correct: There is no question of the existence of God/Allah. An unbeliever is not an atheist in the Western sense of the word. An unbeliever is one who is ungrateful to God/Allah, one who can see clearly that everything he ever has or will ever have is due to the compassion of God/Allah for him but who refuses to honor God/Allah in a spirit of perverse ingratitude. In Islam an unbeliever is apostate.

One absolute of Judaism: God can not be described by a formula - the "face" of God was different for every person. Each and every person experiences God in a different way to answer the needs of his or her own particular temperament. Each of the prophets had experienced God differently because his personality had influenced his conceptualization of God.

In the search for truth it is necessary to discover whether there is a common ground with the way in which men conceptualize God.

If there is such a common ground then it behooves those called by God to search for truth in an attempt to be able to communicate these base conceptualizations to rest of humanity and return to the heart and soul of religion as opposed to following false beliefs based on the fantasies of religious leaders of times long gone by.

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 central banking system, mass 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 mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass 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. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully. Opinion and thoughts have been adapted, edited, corrected, redacted, combined, added to, re-edited and re-corrected as nearly all opinion and thought has been throughout time but has been done so in the spirit of the original writer with the intent of making his or her thoughts and opinions clearer and relevant to the reader in the present time.
