"Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams - they all have different names, but
they all contain water. Just as religions do - they all contain truths."

Muhammad Ali


Religion is an informal human subconscious governing structure implanted by the local social culture.

Religion that abandons its moral baseline, the support of LIFE, loses its subconscious governing ability and becomes nothing more than a cult of idol worshipers.

A religion will initially be based upon an original unique mystical experience of the founder of the religion.

Ritualized religion begins to lose its ability to continually revitalize the Eternal Soul once it becomes caught in the trap of taking the metaphor, meant for children, literally.

Effective religious mythology has three levels of associated understanding which reveal the Thinspace.

Foundational mythology, the moral compass of a child, incorporates Archaic and Magical consciousness.

Median mythology, designed for adults, teaches community to care for the general welfare of the tribe by incorporating Mystical and Rational consciousness.

Ascendant mythology, related to timeless wisdom, makes use of the Thinspace of the bicameral brains of sages, wizards and mystics walking in Integral consciousness.



lack empathy not religion

Does religion cause terrorism?

Does growing up religious cut the urge to share?


"Manipulating a religious structure in order to use its thoughtforms for domination purposes is common within any religion, no religion is immune to such parasitism and corruption." - Leland Lehrman

"Religion have always been a way for wily, hypocritical leaders using superstition to intimidate people and extort riches from them." - Wallace Danielson

Roman Catholicism and many other Christian cults took another deep ponerological turn when Isaac Newton's theories of a clockwork material reality assigned the Creator the role of deterministic clockmaker and miracle provider entirely removed from Creation.

"Wherever there stands the implication that man can do something which directly and automatically guarantees that God will perform a desired action in response, there is "religion".

When a man makes a wax doll, pokes it full of pins, mutters incantations, and believes that God is thus put under obligation to punish his enemy, this is a "religious" act.

But likewise, when a specially endowed holy man utters a formula over bread and wine and believes that God thereby changes them into divine substance which ineluctably has an ameliorative effect on those who partake, this is a "religious" act." - Vernard Eller




"Imagine that we are sitting here talking of religions and that the maid Masha hears our conversation.

She, of course, understands it in her own way and she repeats what she has understood to the porter Ivan.

The porter Ivan again understands it in his own way and he repeats what he has understood to the coachman Peter next door.

The coachman Peter goes to the country and recounts in the village what the gentry talk about in town.

Do you think that what he recounts will at all resemble what we said?

This is the relation between existing religions and their foundation.

You get teachings, traditions, prayers, rituals, not at fifth but at twenty-fifth hand, and, almost everything has been distorted beyond recognition and everything essential forgotten long ago." - Georges Ivanovitch Gurdjieff



Shiva-Nataraja

Religion,
an attempt by man to understand,
categorize and quantify the Ineffable,
is always doomed to failure !


religion versus spirituality

God hardwired brain

"Mystical states of unitive experience
- oneness with the cosmos or with God -
correspond to measurable activity
in certain parts of the brain
."
Charles Eisenstein


Understanding there is something greater than self helps one to see the actual insignificance of attempting to control things beyond one's self.

Institutionalized religion evolves over time into no more than a social control mechanism concerned with the traditions, masquerading as morals.

Institutionalized religion is incapable of doing the very thing that is needed by an individual feeling separated from community.

Institutionalized religion can bring the "lost soul" into a feeling of fellowship with fellow 'believers' but it can never heal the separation that man feels from the Creator and Sustainer.

The only thing that can heal the separation that man feels from the Creator and Sustainer is mystical states of unitive experience - oneness with the cosmos or with the Creator and Sustainer.


No intercessor is needed for participation in a mystical experience !

In fact participation in a mystical experience precludes intercessors !



truth is the highest religion

religion is defined as:

an institutionalized system of belief


Sets of beliefs, values, and ritual practices based on the thought forms of a spiritual leader creating a conceptual structural foundation for the extended worldview of the disciple.

Religion carries a moral obligation to cherish life along with the spirit of reverence and veneration for life.

Religion is emotionally subjective while theology is rationally objective.

Religious icons and fetishes tap into the emotions while narratives capture the imagination and build systematized conceptual structures.



creator manifest

"Natural religions are not attempts to control nature
but to help you put yourself in accord with nature."

Joesph Campbell


Shaman asks four questions of those feeling psychic illness:

When did you stop dancing?

When did you stop singing ?

When did you stop enjoying telling a story ?

When did you stop enjoying silence ?


In Shaministic religions the unseen forces believed to be controlling different aspects of nature or reality were naturally seen as separate spirits each having different attributes in the power of control over a force of nature - much as an individual life spirit inhabits every unique organic being.

Shamanism refers to a range of indigenous traditional beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spirit world.

Although shamanistic beliefs vary as to culture some forms are shared:

Everything is empower with Spirit.

Spirits may play important roles in human lives.

Spirits can be either good or evil.

Animals play an important role, acting as omens and message-bearers, as well as representations of animal spirit guides.

Shaman coöperate with Spirits to benefit the community.



shamanic vision

Shamans engage various processes and techniques to incite trance: singing, dancing, taking entheogens, meditating and drumming.

The spirit leaves the body and enters the Thinspace during certain tasks.

Shamans - healers, gurus and magicians - can heal sickness.


"Shamanistic traditions of great antiquity has as one of their most important elements the attempt to find God through the Vale of Tears; that cannabis played a role in this, at least in some areas, is born out in the philology surrounding the ritualistic use of the plant.

Whereas Western religious traditions generally stress sin, repentance, and mortification of the flesh, certain older non-Western religions employed cannabis as a euphoriant, which allowed the participant a joyous path to the Ultimate; hence such appellations as "heavenly guide". - William Embolden




native gnostic

ancient Gnosticism

To the Ancient Gnostics the Demiurge forged Material Reality out of the Pleroma, with the help of his six sons - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune - the planetary Genii.

The Ancient Gnostics viewed Material Reality as faulty, a failure of the Demiurge's design due either the Demiurge's cruel nature or due to the fact that a higher power forced it upon the Demiurge.

The Ancient Gnostics divided humanity into three groups:

savages who could see nothing outside the material realm;

those, like Jews, who worship false gods like Samael;

those who worship Nous and the Lumière Infinie of Æon.

Ancient Gnostics saw Christ as the personification of Nous (Divine Mind).

The material body, bound in Nature, is termed Apis.

The Eternal Soul, escaping the material shell at death, is termed Serapis.



walking each other home

Where the concept of the ejection from the garden is false is that mankind stepped into rational dissociation under the operation of his own free will and the Creator strolls silently in the Garden waiting for us to rejoin him.

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 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.
