There are certain characteristics of dreams
that are similar, no matter who is dreaming them.
There is another, deeper
understanding of dream time - which is of a time that is outside of time which
is simply just an enduring state of being.
"Initiation is equivalent to introducing the novice
to the mythical history of the tribe; in otherwords, the initiate learns the
deeds of the beings outside time, who, in the dreamtime, established the
present human condition and all the religious, social, and cultural
institutions of the tribe.
All in all, to know this traditional lore
means to know the adventures of the ancestors and the other foundational beings
when they lived on earth.
In Australia these adventures amount to
little more than long wanderings during which the beings of the dreamtime are
believed to have performed a certain number of acts.
As we saw, the
novices are obliged to retrace these mythical journeys during their initiation.
They thus relive the events of the dreamtime.
Australians these primordial events represent a sort of cosmogony - although,
in general, the work of the dreamtime is one of completing and perfecting: the
mythical ancestors do not create the world; but transform it, there by giving
it its present form; they do not create man, they civilize him." - Mircea
The Dreaming is a
sacred time outside living memory
when ancestral heroes traveled across a formless
land creating sacred sites and all the
living things out of their own essence
merging into the Mother of all
things - the Earth.
All life is part of a vast and complex single
network of relationships which can be traced directly back to the great
spirit ancestors of the Dreaming.
In this Dreaming lies the sacredness of the Earth.

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
