Chinese charater for psyche

"The meaning of events is the way of salvation that you create.

The meaning of events comes from the life in this world that you create.

It is the mastery of this world and the assertion of your soul in this world."

Carl Gustav Jung (July 26, 1875 - June, 6 1961)



Science is not, indeed, a perfect instrument, but it is a superior and indispensable one that works harm only when taken as an end in itself.

Scientific method must serve; it errs when it usurps a throne.

Scientific method must be ready to serve all branches of science , because each, by reason of its insufficiency, has need of support from the others.

Science is a tool of the rational mind and with it doors can be opened.

Science is part and parcel of our knowledge and only obscures our insight when it holds that the understanding given by it is the only category there is.

The East has taught that understanding through life.

We know this way only vaguely, as a mere shadowy sentiment.

This assertion may appear bold and is likely to be met with disbelief considering how little is known about the relgious cultures of the East.

The strangeness of the relgious cultures of the East is so arresting that our embarrassment as where the Chinese world of thought might be joined to ours is quite understandable.

When faced with this problem of grasping the ideas of the East, the usual mistake of Western man is like that of the student in Faust.

Misled by Satan, contemptuously he turns his back on science, and, carried away by Eastern mysticism, becomes a pitiable imitator of yoga.

He abandons the one safe foundation of the rational mind, and loses himself in a mist of alien words and ideas.

Everything depends on the man and little or nothing on the method.

For the method is merely the path, the direction taken by a man.

The way a man behaves is the true expression of his nature.

Commentary on the Secrets of the Golden Flower



spirit


The intent of the scientific method is to discern an object of inquiry well enough to make accurate true statements about the qualities of the object.

Accurate true statements about the qualities of the object of inquiry can be verified by facts.

The object of inquiry is natural phenomenon.

To inquire into the essence of what has been observed is possible in natural science only where there is an Archimedean point outside.

For the psyche no such outside standpoint exists.

Only the psyche can actually observe itself.

Great as the importance of faith and conviction is for the individual and collective life, psychology lacks the means to prove validity scientifically.

The word 'spirit' possesses such a wide range of application that it requires considerable effort to make clear to oneself all the things it can mean.

Some say 'spirit' is the principle that stands in opposition to matter.

By this we understand an immaterial substance or form of existence which on the highest and most universal level is called 'God.'

We imagine this immaterial substance also as the vehicle of consciousness.

Here spirit means the sum total of all the phenomena of rational thought.

Spirit consists not only in uprushes of life but in abstract concepts too.

The intellect, includes the will, memory, imagination, creative power, and aspirations motivated by ideals.

Spirit has the further connotation as an individual is 'spirited,' meaning that he is versatile, full of ideas, with a brilliant, witty, surprising turn of mind.

Recognition of invisible presence is a psychic phenomenon.

Transcendent spirit superimposed itself on shadowy presentations.

The first and most prominent are those that reside in our field of vision; trailing behind thinking and reason organize the shadowy world of images.

Transcendent spirit becomes the cosmic principle of order and as such is given the name of ' God.'

Still spirit, identified with psychic functions, is dependent on metabolism.

Renamed ether with the term matter produced the idea that the spirit was entirely dependent on nutrition.

In view of the intimate connection that exists between psychic process' and physical parallels we cannot accept the total immateriality of the psyche.

Although the idea of immateriality does not in itself exclude that of reality, popular opinion invariably associates reality with materiality.

Spirit and matter may well be forms of a transcendental being.

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 co÷peration. Co÷peration 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.
