Spiritualism vs Religion



Spiritualism is individual.

Spiritualism is personal.

Spiritualism is Creative.


Religion is collective.

Religion is impersonal.

Religion is recreating ritually

acts of Spiritual Creation.







"Rituals are superstitions; they are adventitiously reinforced.

The more conspicuous and stereotyped the behavior upon which

the reinforcer is accidentally contingent, the greater the effect."

BF Skinner



ritual habituation


Pigs



"When people enjoy doing some particular thing, performing a specific activity - athletic, scholarly, artistically - for enjoyment, then the more times we perform the activity the more the activity becomes a ritual and the more we will note a reduction in pleasure due to habituation.

The activity we once enjoyed has become an ordinary experience.

Ordinary experience we don't seem to notice or remember and at sometime we will inevitably wonder why we are still performing the activity.

Two devices allow people to beat pleasure reduction due to habituation - increase the variety of activities or increase the amount of time that separates repetitions of an activity.

When episodes of activity are sufficiently separated in time, increased variety is unnecessary." - Daniel Gilbert



mystical experience methodology

There are multiple traditional methods of engaging the mystical experience.

Mystical experience opens a window to the subconscious.

The most widely spread method used by proponents of every religion is the contemplative meditative prayer.

Other methods include:

chanting;

fasting;

self-flagellation;

engagement in ritual practices;

holding a rigid body position for a prolonged period;

the use of entheogens.



mind boggled


An entheogen is a psychoactive substance used in a shamanic context.

Entheogens generally come from plant sources which contain molecules closely related to endogenous neurochemicals.

A wide variety of psychedelics are used in various religious rites.

Entheogens directly provoke what users perceive as a mystical experience.

"Entheogen" refers to any molecule which stimulates the central nervous system through one of the two main neurological pathways:

phenethylamine - a brain chemical associated with the adrenaline pathway, and a precursor of mescaline and 2C-B;

tryptamine - a brain chemical associated with the natural metabolism of serotonin, a precursor of psilocin, psilocybin, n,n-dimethyltryptamine and lysergic acid diethylamide.





Within the global paradigm shift in thought processing occuring during entheogenic initiation the concept of Eternal Life shifts along with understanding of time, self-control, agency and self-conceptualization.

In experiential allegory, Eternal Life refers to the experience of timelessness, or the discovery of the existence of timelessness - life suspended in a moment.

This is the true mystical meaning of Eternal Life.

1955 Christopher Paget Mayhew, a British member of parliament, is given 400mg of mescaline before BBC TV cameras by Dr Humphry Osmond.

Chris is totally convinced that a part of our consciousness exists outside time.

Christopher Mayhew is tested by Dr Osmond throughout the experiment and shows no significant loss of intelligence.

Christopher Paget Mayhew received a life peerage and was raised to the House of Lords as Baron Mayhew.


"After brooding about it for several months, I still think my first, astonishing conviction was right - that afternoon I existed outside time.

I don't mean this metaphorically, but literally.

I mean the essential part of me ("This is me") has an existence conscious of itself in a timeless order of reality outside the world as we know it.

Though perfectly rational and wide awake I was not experiencing events in the normal sequence of time." - Christopher Paget Mayhew






Chinese charater for selfless service

Selfless love turns off brain's need for reward

Human Evolution in a Time of Global Crisis


"The Path towards Æon is selflessness."

Rumi


filled with spirit


The state of selflessness, Nirvana, gained through true knowledge or gnosis is typically misunderstood by both the individual and society in general.

Individuals typically see selflessness as a loss of either identity or sovereignty.

Selflessness is an abandonment of concerns of the ego.

Abandonment of concerns of the ego does not mean a loss of identity, but a loss of concern for the fulfilling of previously established desire.

Once the requirements for continued existence are met then all other desire is simply window dressing for the ego.

An ego freed of desire exists in contentment and enjoys an inner peace.



mortification of the flesh



Ritualized pain can come in many forms and appears in many religions.

The act of self-flagellation is practiced by some Shi'a and utilized by many Christian sects such as Opus Dei throughout Christian history.

In India the Standing Babas, or Khareshwari, vow never to sit or lie down in a self-inflicted punishment intended to spark spiritual enlightenment.

They hope to experience a mystical timeless rebirth.

They want to grow out of an entirely materialistic concept of self.

A consciousness overcoming delusion, māyā, takes a higher perspective.



afterlife


The mystic definition of salvation and of Eternal Life can happen now, whereas the literal definition of salvation you will only find in death.

Enlightenment, redemption, salvation, awakening, reconciliation and communion with God all pivot around the discovery of timelessness.



selfless Jesus


Most interpretations of the Jesus narratives suggests Jesus gave his life to remove the burden of original sin.

To gain this redemption from original sin it is claimed that Jesus the Tekton freely gave his life.

If this is true then Jesus did not live for his own self.



evil genius seeks minions !

self-sacrifice



Self-sacrifice, once seen as a noble endeavor, has become something other.

In a tight knit social group self-sacrifice still is a noble endeavor.

In the context of MICE culture it is a presentation of feeble mindedness.

Self-sacrifice cannot be an actual physical sacrifice, as in the terrorist act of a suicide bombing, and have any lasting impact upon MICE culture.

The only truly noble self-sacrifice within MICE cultural is the execution of the parasite of the self.

This requires a razor sharp intellect that is not afraid of using the razor to shave away the overlay to reveal the marble underneath.

You have fallen asleep.

You have begun to dream.

Realize you are dreaming.

This is lucid dreaming !




"Your vision will become clear only

when you can look into your own heart.

Who looks outside, dreams;

who looks inside, awakes."

Carl Jung



Elegua - guardian of the crossroads of life

Eleguá is a syncretic deity of roads in Santería, Umbanda, Quimbanda, Candomblé and Palo Mayombe.

Eleguá is syncretized with either Saint Michael, Saint Anthony of Padua or the Holy Child of Atocha.

Eleguá is known in Cuba and Puerto Rico as the Orichá and "owner" of caminos.

All ceremonies and rituals in Santería must first have the approval of Eleguá before progressing.

Eleguá is known as Èṣù- Ẹlẹgbára in the Yoruba religion.

In Afro-Brazilian religion Èṣù- Ẹlẹgbára is an Èṣù.

There are 365 paths to Èṣù or Exù - each one an Èṣù- Ẹlẹgbára.

"Intelligence is quickness

in seeing things as they are
."

George Santayana

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 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.
