faith is herein defined as: reoccurring pattern
occurrances are likely to occur again;
confidence in individual ability
to have properly discerned reality;
a persuasion of the mind the
noumenon has been properly identified.
Knowledge is an essential element in
all faith, and is sometimes
spoken of as
an equivalent to faith (John
10:38; 1 John 2:3).

Faith is the cry of reason, which persists in
denying the absurd, even in
the presence of the unknown.
Faith is a sentiment necessary to the soul, just as breathing is to
life; it is the dignity of
courage, and the reality of enthusiasm.
Faith does not consist of
the affirmation of a symbol, but
of a genuine and constant aspiration towards
the truths which are all veiled by symbolisms.
the aspiration to the unknown,
the object of faith is
absolutely and necessarily this one thing -
In order to formulate its
aspirations, faith is forced to
borrow aspirations and images from the known." - Eliphas
"The leap of faith is really a very ordinary
operation. We take it every time we fall in love,
expect kindness from someone in return
for a good deed, impulsively sacrifice some little piece of our
self-interest." - Lee
"My faith is weak, my eyes are
blind from the shimmering
blaze of the desert sun.
The heat lies on me like lead.
torments me, I dare not think how unendingly long my way is, and above all, I
see nothing in front of me."
Eternal Soul answers:
"You speak as if you have learned nothing.
Can you not wait?
Should everything fall into your lap ripe and finished?

Do you still not know that
the way to truth stands open

True faith has nothing to do with belief
People have faith for the same reason
a person has a
worldview - it resonates rationally and spirtually over a wide range of
living experiences as true.
The opinion that religion is
grounded in fear is an article of "faith".
True faith, grounded in
the noumenon, has to
relate directly to actual life.
True faith enhances daily living
experiences by relieving anxiety.
True faith is known, not taught -
no one needs an intercessor!
"Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the
pillar of fire
by night left its place in front of the people." - Exodus
True faith teaches reason and
intuition are to be
trusted, and no religious teaching
should ever be accepted if it does not make rational logical sense.
True faith teaches the true reality inside your
heart and soul can be trusted
to have a common structure with the
true reality in which we are immersed.
True faith is built on the
central pillars of honesty with oneself - a

It may come as a surprise
to many students of the Bible that in the original Hebrew text the body of
water the Israelites crossed when leaving Egypt is called yam suph, "Sea
of Reeds," not Red Sea (Ex 15:4, 22; Dt 11:4; Jos 2:10; 4:23; 24:6; Neh 9:9; Ps
106:7, 9, 33; 136:13, 15).
Unfortunately, yam suph has been
rendered "Red Sea" in nearly all of translations, the Jerusalem Bible and the
New Jewish Publication Society Hebrew Bible being notable
The "Red Sea" phrase came into the account with the third
century BC translation of the Old Testament into Greek.
translators made yam suph ("Sea of Reeds") into eruthrá
thálasse ("Red Sea").
Latin Vulgate followed
their lead with mari Rubro ("Red Sea") and most English versions
continued that tradition.
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.
