"Take the helmet of salvation
and the sword of the SpirIT,
which is the Word of God."
Ephesians 6:17

Saint Patrick's Breastplate

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through the belief in the threeness,
Through the confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ's birth with his baptism,
Through the strength of his crucifixion with his burial,
Through the strength of his resurrection with his ascension,
Through the strength of his descent for the Judgment Day.

I arise today
Through the strength of the compassion of Cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In prayers of patriarchs,
In predictions of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

I arise today
Through God's strength to pilot me:
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look before me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's host to save me
From snares of demons,
From temptations of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in multitude.

I summon today all the Creator's powers between me and evil,
Against every cruel merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul.

C hrist to shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that there may come to me abundance of reward.
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness,
Of the Creator of Creation.

Cat Stevens - Morning has broken

The hymn originally appeared in the second edition of Songs of Praise (published in 1931), to the tune "Bunessan", composed in the Scottish Highlands. In Songs of Praise Discussed, the editor, Percy Dearmer, explains that as there was need for a hymn to give thanks for each day, English poet and children's author Eleanor Farjeon had been "asked to make a poem to fit the lovely Scottish tune". "Bunessan" had been found in L. McBean's Songs and Hymns of the Gael, published in 1900. Before Farjeon's words, the tune was used as a Christmas carol, which began "Child in the manger, Infant of Mary", translated from the Scottish Gaelic lyrics written by Mary MacDonald. The English-language Roman Catholic hymnal also uses the tune for the Charles Stanford hymns "Christ Be Beside Me" and "This Day God Gives Me", both of which were adapted from the traditional Irish hymn St. Patrick's Breastplate. Another Christian hymn "Baptize In Water" borrows the tune. Piano arrangement by Rick Wakeman.

I bind unto myself today and forever
In the supreme name of the Creator and Sustainer,
By invocation of the multifaceted Creator and Sustainer of Creation,
God's dream, God's will, God's soul, God's spirit,
God's power, God's word, God's children, God's compassion,
God's grace, God's mercy, God's rule, God's voice and God's Creation.

I bind unto myself today and forever,
By faith in the Reality of the Creator and Sustainer;
By Baptism in God's Water of Life I am renewed;
My Soul is are redeemed from everlasting death;
Rising from the spiced spiritual tomb of pragmatic materialism;
The Creator and Sustainer carries me on the spiritual way;
Creator and Sustainer with me eternally.

I bind unto myself today and forever;
The power of the great compassion of compassionate God;
The sweet gratitude of being spiritually redeemed;
In the service of theCreator and Sustainer,
Living the faith of the true Apostles' word,
Repeating the sweet words of Christ the Savior,
Awakening and redeemed spiritually corrupt souls,
Through the awesome power of the Holy Spirit.

I bind unto myself today and forever, God's Creation,
Seen in the virtues of the starlit heaven,
The glorious sun's life-giving ray,
The whiteness of the moon at evening,
The flashing of the lightning free,
The whirling wind's tempestuous shocks,
The stable earth, the deep salt sea,
Around the old eternal rocks.

I bind unto myself today
The power of Creator and Sustainer to hold and lead,
God's eye to watch, God's might to stay,
Creator and Sustainer's ear to hearken to my need.
The wisdom of the Creator and Sustainer to teach,
God's hand to guide, God's shield to ward,
The logos of Creator and Sustainer to give me speech,
Creator and Sustainer's spirit to be my guard,

Against the demonic snares of sin,
The lies that gives temptation force,
The unnatural lusts based on fantasy,
The hostile men that obstruct my course;
The few or many, far or nigh,
In every place and in all hours
Against their fierce hostility,
I bind to me the holy and sacred power of the
Creator and Sustainer,
of all that does exist, has existed or ever will exist,

To guide and protect me
Against intellectual idolatry,
Against all followers of evil,
Against false words of heresy,
Against false knowledge that defiles,
Against the propagandists' evil craft,
Against the spiritual death-wound of narcissism,
Against the chocking enslavement of totalitarianism,
Against the fossil fuel fire poisoned air, water and Earth,
Protect me, Creator and Sustainer from all of mankind's evil.

Creator and Sustainer within me,
Creator and Sustainer above me,
Creator and Sustainer beside me,
Creator and Sustainer before me,
Creator and Sustainer behind me,
Creator and Sustainer beneath me,
Creator and Sustainer on my right,
Creator and Sustainer on my left,
Creator and Sustainer to comfort and restore me,
Creator and Sustainer to guide me in quiet and in danger,
Creator and Sustainer in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Creator and Sustainer in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Creator and Sustainer in every eye that sees me, in every ear that hears me.

I bind unto myself the Creator and Sustainer,
God, One seen as Three, through which all nature is forged,
Eternal Father, Everlasting Spirit, Divine Word,
Praise to the Creator and Sustainer of my salvation,
Redemption found in the Words of Christ,
Carried on the spiritual way by the Spirit of the Creator and Sustainer.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new religious ideology 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 the religion aptly 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 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 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 is based on cooperation. Cooperation 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.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully.
