Judiac law specifies that full
immersion in water is required to regain ritual purity after
ritually impure incidents have
occurred - the butchering of an animal.
Most forms of impurity can
be nullified through immersion in any natural collection of water.

water," such as springs or groundwater wells.
Living water has the
further advantage of being able to purify even while
flowing as opposed to rainwater which
must be stationary in order to purify.
The mikvah is designed to
simplify this requirement, by providing a bathing facility that remains in
ritual contact with a natural source of water.
Its main uses now:
by Jewish women to achieve ritual purity after menstruation or
by Jewish men to achieve ritual purity;
a traditional procedure for
conversion to Judaism;
for utensils used for food.
baptism is based on the mikvah or mikveh - the ritual of full immersion in
The word "mikvah" literally means a "collection" - generally, a
collection of water.
When engaged in any action that creates impurity,
like toiling in the noon day sun in the garden, we 'baptise' ourselves in the

This web site marks the
founding of the gnostic mystery religion aptly 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 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.
