Neopaganism is based on the ancient worldwide
religion of Mother Nature.
It is unlikely that much of the original
thought structure truly remains of the ancient worldwide religion of Mother
There is no set dogma
in Neopaganism as each cell of Nature worshipers devises its own belief systems
Rituals will be largely dependent on environmental conditions
within which the cult resides and ritual takes place.
Belief systems will be dependent on
the thought process' and mindset of the members of each unique coven, in turn,
dependent on local Goth.
Since Nature takes a
central role in these groups dogma is modeled more closely on easily identified
aspects of Nature.
Neopaganism springs from outside Abrahamic religious
thought and attempts to free the female
psyche from the psychic bonds of Yahweh.
True Neopaganism uses magik
ritual to change internal perception through recognition of unseen aspects and
patterns within Nature.
True Neopaganism has no
use for the complex rituals devised by Ordo Templi Orientis of Theodor
Reuss or the Theosophical
Society of Aleister Crowley to be enacted in a temple setting no
different than that of the typical cathedral.

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The

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 the religion aptly named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière
Infinie - 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 the Lumière Infinie 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."

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 economic 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.
