Love is a Rose

love over hate

Six Ancient Greek Words for Love



What is compassion is infinite?

Adoration is possessive.

Compassion is encompassing.

Awe is epiphany.

Agápe is Ikigai.


Athbhreith Athbheochan





Love Is My Religion

This is love



Ancient Greek has four distinct words for 'love':

Agápe, Éros, Storge and Philía.

Agápe is unconditional compassion for all existence.

Éros is passionate 'love' or lust - the sensual erotic desire of sexual possession of the body of another.

Storge is familial loyalty.

Philía is loyalty displayed through affection over time.

Philía has four children: two sets of twins ~ !

Two forms of inwardly expressed "love" in Philía suggest two forms of outwardly expressed "love" in Philía.

Feelings vacillate. One can be enamored with self.

One can be enamored and awed by another.

One can care about oneself or one can hate oneself.

One can care about another or one can hate another.

Narcissists gaze longing into the pool only seeing mask they wear, never seeing their true countenance reflected.

Standing on a thinly veiled fear of death, skating on the thin ice of not-life, waiting to fall down a rabbit hole.

Outwardly expressed projection of Philía by a narcissist may appear genuine but a narcissist wears a mask.

Philía's evil twin, living on the other side of the mirror, then rears her ugly head and strikes like a Cobra!

The rule of recoprocity does not apply to the Chosen !



It Must Have Been Love



The Greeks recognized two forms of self-love in Philía.

In its negative form philautia is the selfishness with wants of pleasure, fame, and wealth beyond needs.

In its positive form philautia is feeling secure in oneself leaving plenty of empathy for validation of others.

Agápe is the movement of the Holy Spirit within the primordial energy of the everlasting infinite Noumenon.


Agápe is manifested in three actions:


In romantic affection, the psyche moves toward
the object of its erotic affections.


In philosophical contemplation, the mind contemplates the reality of nature through the exercise of reason.


In mystical transformation, the Eternal Soul Walking the Thinspace desires infinite Union with the Soul of Æon.

Confused Christians believe Agápe entails self-sacrifice.

Agápe requires self-sacrifice, not as commonly perceived.

Agápe requires self-sacrifice of ego, a release of agency.

Agápe of the Creator and Sustainer is seen in Creation.

Chinese charaters for compassion begets compassion ........Chinese charater for be kind to each other and compassion each other

The Golden Rule,

or Rule of Reciprocity

found in the scriptures of every religion,

is regarded as the most concise

and general description of the

basic human rules of conduct.



"The task of industrial society was to destroy reciprocity.

All "community" implies - self-sufficiency, mutual aid, fair trade, stubborn tradition, regulation by custom, organic knowledge instead of mechanistic science - had to be steadily and systematically disrupted and displaced.

All of the practices that kept the individual from being a consumer had to be done away with so that the cogs and wheels of an unfettered machine called "the economy" could operate without interference, influenced merely by invisible hands." - Kirkpatrick Sale


"This call for world-wide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one's tribe, race, class and nation is a call for all-embracing unconditional compassion for all men.

This oft misunderstood and misinterpreted concept has become an absolute necessity for the survival of man.

Now let us begin.

Now let us rededicate ourselves to the long and bitter - but beautiful - struggle for a new reality.

This is the calling of the sons of God, and our brothers wait eagerly for our response. " - Martin Luther King Jr.



CHARTER FOR COMPASSION

THE CHARTER FOR COMPASSION



Natural selection pushes in the direction of true selflessness.

With the emergence of reciprocity humans learned to trade favors.

A favor-giver avoids blatant cheaters preferring generous reciprocators.

A competition arises between actors wanting to appear to be generous.

At this time a reputation for fairness and generosity becomes an asset.

The most effective way to appear generous and fair, is to be so.

The genuinely generous partners are weaned from the hypocrites.

Reputation can be secured only by a commitment to be generous and fair.

Some agents evolve to be genuinely high-minded - they become activists.

Are You A Highly Sensitive Person?


river of kindness

I thank You God for most this amazing day:

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and

a blue true dream of sky and

for everything which is natural, infinite, yes

I who have died am alive again today,

and this is the sun's birthday,

the birthday of life, of love on wings,

of the gay great happening, illimitably earth

how should tasting touching hearing seeing breathing

lifted from a merely unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and

now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

AXIAL AGE THOUGHT

The Significance of the Axial Age

Ways to Raise Kind Children



Lao Tze, a contemporary of Confucius, writes in the 6th century BC.

Siddhartha Gautama teaches at the dawn of the 5th century BC.

Socrates perfected instructions to his students as the 4th century closed.

Jesus the Tekton died for sharing proprietary knowledge imparted by the Therapeutae and Philo the Pythagorean thus upsetting the social order.

Freed of the unnatural desire of controlling reality we find sacred peace.

The "Axial Age" is the fulcrum of cultural awakening from mythological consciousness into rational consciousness for humanity on a whole.

Axial Age sages experiencing integral consciousness recognized tempering brute selfish rationality in Gesellschaft culture required the participants to abide by the Rule of Reciprocity which worked in tight knit social groups.

The ancient call of empathy abandons selfishness and embraces compassion.

Compassion is hollow of value as an abstract concept.



Be kind to others, take a good look around. Although we are different, similarities abound. Try not to judge, pick on, or tease. Treat each other fairly, with kindness and ease.

Compassion must be lived to have any value!

Sharing monkeys suggest amygdala affects kindness



Literalist movements are concerned with promoting doctrine out of context and work endlessly to sheild religious dogma from the light of reason.

Institutionalized religion keeps the concentration on compassion safely within the approved understanding of the chosen circle of believers.

Muhammad ibn 'Abdullāh, operating in integral consciousness, wanting to craft a humanity that understood integral consciousness sung a song.

In the Garden of Nirvana where integral consciousness reigns emotional suffering ceases and compassionate behavior dethrones the stifling ego.

Cultural traditions are seen as the Masquerade they are by True Prophets.

True prophets understand that respect for Life brings you into the Presence.





Ekstasis, or ecstasy, in Greek means "stepping outside."

Anyone can step into integral consciousness by "stepping outside" rational thought patterns by recognizing the limitations of rational dissociation.

Integral consciousness - outside the prison of primitive emotion supporting egotism, selfishness, greed and envy - is not an exotic state of consciousness.

To do so simply requires the sacrifice of preconcieved notions.

The way to end hostility is to learn to think and practice the Golden Rule.



give with no expectations


We return thanks to our Mother,

the Earth, which sustains us.


We return thanks to the rivers and streams,

which supply us with water.


We return thanks to all herbs,

which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.


We return thanks to the moon and stars,

which give us light when the sun was gone down.


We return thanks to the Sun,

that has looked upon the Earth with a beneficent eye.


Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,

in Whom is embodied all goodness,

Who directs all things for the good of Her children.

unique library index

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 mass 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.
