in life only one moment and in eternity only one.
It is so brief
that it is represented by the fleeting of a
luminous mote through the thin ray of sunlight - and it is visible but a
fraction of a second.
The moments that preceded it have been lived, are
forgotten and are without
value; the moments that have not been lived have no existence and will have
no value except in the moment that each shall be lived." -
To live in the moment is
commonly misunderstood as living for the moment.
The fable of the
grasshopper and the ant is an example of the mindset that has been taught -
living in the moment is given the connotation of living
But the fable of the ant and the grasshopper presents
only a dichotomy.
Each choice exists at the farthest
extreme of diametrically opposed poles.
In reality if we live like
the ant we die like the ant.
Our carcass is carted off to the rubbish
heap without a second thought.
To live like the grasshopper is to sell
the future for purchased happiness now.
But purchasing happiness can only last while
there are funds to be had and
eventually credit card bills
catch up with us.
Looked at from this point of view both the
grasshopper and the ant, having taken extreme positions, payed the inevitable
price of their extremity.
Is there a middle way? Naturally
Living in the moment is living in
not some time in the future.
Eternity is not even an infinite amount of
Eternity has nothing to do with time.
Eternity is that dimension of -
- beyond all thinking
The compassion of the Creator and Sustainer grants us
every fleeting moment of Life as a gift. To deny this reality is to separate
oneself from the Ineffable which is the Gnostic Christian mystics' definition
of spiritual suffering due to removal from the presence of the Creator and
We must think to the future,
plan and prepare for the future.
We must also be able to enjoy
days of our lives when the
awe of living break through
the bounds of
the need to plan, prepare and think of the future.
When our tasks
no longer seem like tasks then our hearts float free and the task morphs into
an enjoyable activity.
Simply give the task your full attention and
immerse yourself in the moment.
Living in the moment
is accepting reality
Living in the moment is enjoying reality
Living in the moment is accepting existence
Living in the moment is enjoying existence
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 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 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 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.
