THE SWALLOW AND THE BLACKBIRDS
It happened that a farmer was sowing some hemp seeds in a
field where a Swallow and some blackbirds were hopping about picking food.
"Beware of that man," quoth the Swallow.
"Why, what is he
doing?" said, the blackbirds.
"That is hemp seed he is sowing; be
careful to pick up everyone of the seeds, or else you will repent it."
The blackbirds paid no heed to the Swallow's words, and by and by the
hemp grew up and was made into cord, and of the cords nets were made, and many
a blackbird that had despised the
Swallow's advice was caught in nets made out of that very hemp.

A Roman and a lion were discussing the relative strength of

The Roman contended that he and his countrymen
were stronger than lions by reason of their greater

So the Roman took the Lion into
gardens and showed him a statue of

"That is all

THE WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING A Wolf found great difficulty in getting at the sheep owing to the
vigilance of the shepherd and his
dogs. But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and thrown
aside, so it put it on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep.
The lamb that belonged to the sheep, whose skin the Wolf was wearing,
began to follow the Wolf in the Sheep's clothing; so, leading the lamb a little
apart, he soon made a meal off her, and for some time he succeeded in deceiving
the sheep, and enjoying hearty meals.

proposal to make, which he thought would meet the case.
"You will all

manner in which the enemy approaches us. Now, if we could receive some signal
of her approach, we could easily escape from her. I venture, therefore, to
propose that a small bell be procured, and attached by a ribbon round the neck

THE FOOL AND THE COUNTRYMAN
At a country fair there was a fool who made all the people laugh by
imitating the cries of various animals. He
finished off by squeaking so like a pig that the spectators thought that he had
a porker concealed about him.
But a farmer who stood by said: "Call
that a pig's squeak. Nothing like it. You give me till tomorrow and I will show
you what it's like."
audience laughed, but next
day, sure enough, the farmer appeared on the stage, and putting his head down
squealed so hideously that the spectators, hissed and threw stones at him to
make him stop.
"You fools" he
cried, "see what you have been hissing," and held up a little pig whose ear he
had been pinching to make him utter the squeals.

THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER In a field, one fine
summer day, a Grasshopper
was hopping about, chirping, singing and munching to his heart's content.
An Ant passed by, bearing along with great toil a kernel of rye.
"Why not eat the rye then come and dance and sing with me," said the
Grasshopper, "instead of toiling that way?"
"I am helping to lay up
seed for the winter," said
the Ant, "and recommend you to do the same."
"Why worry about
winter?" said the
Grasshopper; "there is plenty of seed."
The Ant went on its way and
continued its toil.

Grasshopper had no seed, and found itself dying of hunger, while it saw the
ants distributing rye seeds every day from the stash they had collected in the

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
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 central banking
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

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.
