The Gates of Paradise

Chinese charater for paradise

A soldier named Nobushige came to Hakuin, and asked:

"Is there really a paradise and a hell?"

"Who are you?" inquired Hakuin.

"I am a samurai," the warrior replied.

"You, a soldier!" exclaimed Hakuin.

"What kind of ruler would have you as his guard?

Your face looks like that of a beggar."

Nobushige became angry, he began to draw his sword, Hakuin continued:

"So you have a sword! Your weapon is probably too dull to cut off my head."

As Nobushige drew his sword Hakuin remarked:

"Here open the gates of hell!"

At these words the samurai, perceiving the master's discipline, sheathed his sword and bowed.

"Here open the gates of paradise," said Hakuin.

Chinese charater for heaven

Creator and Sustainer's Dream

"Before Newton, the heavenly realm and earthly realm remained separate.

The heavenly realm was the realm of perfection, where heavenly bodies moved in perfect circles (well, actually ellipses) and along predictable paths.

The earthly realm was chaotic; what order there was (tides, day and night, seasons, and so forth) seemed to originate in the heavens.

Naturally people associate the heavenly realm of order and mathematical perfection with God.

Heavenly bodies were not subject to earthly laws - the moon does not fall out of the sky the way Galileo's weights fell from the leaning tower of Pisa." - Charles Eisenstein

"In the utterances of the divine Avatars the term "heaven" hath been applied to many diverse things; such as the "heaven of Command," the "heaven of Will," the "heaven of the divine Purpose," the "heaven of divine Knowledge," the "heaven of Certitude," the "heaven of Utterance," the "heaven of Revelation," the "heaven of Concealment," and the like. In every instance, He hath given the term " heaven" a special meaning, the significance of which is revealed to none save those that have been initiated into the divine mysteries, and have drunk from the Chalice of Eternal Life." - Bahá'u'lláh

"God, who is all these kinds of heavens in one, has fallen on our heads like thunder, and God's infinity is ours." - Henri Barbusse

introduction to heaven

Chinese charater for heaven

heaven is defined as:

abode of bliss

dwelling place of gods

abode of souls after death

place conceived of as the domain of divine beings

The condition of supreme happiness or great comfort, delight, or pleasure; perfect felicity; bliss; a sublime or exalted condition; a heaven of delight.

The expanse of space surrounding the earth; especially, that which appears to be over the Earth like a great arch or dome; the firmament; the sky; the place where the sun, moon, and stars appear.

The usual Hebrew word for "heavens" is _shamayim_, a plural form meaning "heights," "elevations" (Gen. 1:1; 2:1).

The Hebrew word _marom_ is also used (Ps. 68:18; 93:4; 102:19, etc.) as equivalent to _shamayim_, "high places," "heights."

Hebrew word _galgal_, literally a "a wheel, whirl, whirlwind" is rendered "heaven" in Ps. 77:18.

Hebrew _shahak_ rendered "sky" (Deut. 33:26; Job 37:18; Ps. 18:11), plural "clouds" (Job 35:5; 36:28; Ps. 68:34, "heavens or firmament.")

"To the Lord thy God belong the heavens and the heavens of the heavens."

Resh Lakish said, they are seven, viz.: Vilon, Rakia, Shchakim, Zbul, Maon, Makhon, Araboth.

Vilon serves no purpose whatever save this, that it enters in the morning, and goes forth in the evening, and renews every day the work of creation.

Rakia is that in which are set sun and moon, stars and constellations.

Shchakim is that in which millstones stand and grind manna for the righteous.

Zbul is the heavenly Jerusalem and the Temple, and the altar is built there, and Michael the great prince stands and offers upon it an offering.

Maon is that in which are companies of ministering angels, who utter His song in the night and are silent in the day for the sake of the glory of Israel.

Makhon is that in which are the treasures of hail, and the high dwelling-place of harmful dews and the high dwelling-place of the round drops, and the chamber of the whirlwind and of the storm, and the retreat of noisome vapor; and their doors are made of fire.

Araboth is that in which are righteousness and judgement and grace, the treasures of life and the treasures of peace and the treasures of blessing, and the souls of the righteous and the spirits and souls which are about to be forged, and the dew with which the Holy One, blessed be He, is about to quicken mortals."- Babylonian Talmud, Tract Hagiga, Chapter II

the divine plan is not to escape earth  but to bring heaven to earth

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 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."

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 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 coöperation. Coöperation 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 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.
