separation from nature

"They that languish in the Wastes of Separation
be led unto the Home of Eternal Reunion."

we are here to awaken from the illusion of separation

"Man is a part of nature." - Frank Thilly

Separation is an illusion,
we can live in the Gift of Life here and now.

The only barrier to doing this lies in our beliefs.

The societal projection that we are behaving irresponsibly by living life fully in the moment, the perception that doing so is either unintelligent or irresponsible, is simply not true when our behavior is natural.

"A thing is right if it tends to preserve the stability,
integrity, and beauty of the biotic community.
It is wrong if it tends otherwise."
Aldo Leopold

"A human being is part of the whole, called by us 'Universe'; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely but striving for such achievement is, in itself, a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security." - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate

"Within your legends, your myths, your various religions with their stories of Gardens of Eden, and within the tales of ancient advanced civilizations, is a collective memory of a time when humanity was not separate. They recall a time when human consciousness was one with God, connected to earth and to all of creation." - Vincent Cole

2 hours in nature

"Our problems arise from the illusion of separateness."
Laurence Overmire

"Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's Landscape and Human Health Laboratory have compiled evidence that suggests that a connection to nature is vital to our psychological and physical health as it helps recharge our brains so that we're better able to cope with the stresses in life. Urban environments, with their traffic and harried pace, are a constant drain on our mental resources because we have to work to pay attention to a myriad of stimuli. Similarly, animals taken out of their natural habitats can start to degrade mentally and physically - parenting skills decline, aggression increases and playful activity stops." - Andrea Thompson

Immersion in nature increases focus and reasoning because nature is filled with "soft fascinations" such as rustling trees or bubbling water that allow high-level functions the leisure to replenish, whereas, on the other hand, urban life is filled with the harsh distracting sensory stimuli of sirens, helicopters, car horns and eardrum rupturing rap that overloads high-level functions with the natural biological orienting response mechanism inherent in all mammals creating cognitive confusion through distraction.

"Solastalgia" is a combination of the Latin word solacium (comfort) and the Greek root – algia (pain), which Glenn Albrecht, who coined the term defined as "the pain experienced when there is recognition that the place where one resides and that one loves is under immediate assault . . . a form of homesickness one gets when one is still at 'home'.

two dimensional

"I call it "quantum consciousness": the consciousness we access when we use the potential of our quantum-computer brains. The brain is a macroscopic quantum system, yet we use it as if it were exclusively a classical biochemical system. With its quantum-system functions, our brain can receive information not only from our eyes and ears, but directly from the wider world with which we are "entangled"–nonlocally connected. Insightful people throughout history, whether shamans or scientists, poets or prophets, have extensively used this capacity, innate to all human beings. Today it is widely neglected. This impoverishes our world picture, and causes a nagging sense that we are separate from the world around us." - Ervin Laszlo

"With thinking we may be beside ourselves in a sane sense. By a conscious effort of the mind we can stand aloof from actions and their consequences; and all things, good and bad, go by us like a torrent. We are not wholly involved in Nature. I may be either the driftwood in the stream, or Indra in the sky looking down on it. I may be affected by a theatrical exhibition; on the other hand, I may not be affected by an actual event which appears to concern me much more. I only know myself as a human entity; the scene, so to speak, of thoughts and affections; and am sensible of a certain doubleness by which I can stand as remote from myself as from another. However intense my experience, I am conscious of the presence and criticism of a part of me, which, as it were, is not a part of me, but spectator, sharing no experience, but taking note of it." - Henry David Thoreau

we are part of Nature

"We evolved to thrive in our natural surroundings."
Frances (Ming) Kuo

"Most people are on the world, not in it - having no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them - undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate." - John Muir

"In our modern minds nature and human society are separate things. Our comforting sense of the permanence of our natural world, our confidence that it will change gradually and imperceptibly if at all, is the result of a subtly warped perspective. Changes that can affect us can happen in our lifetime. I believe that without recognizing it we have already stepped over the threshhold of such a change: that we are at the end of nature.
By the end of nature I do not mean the end of the world. The rain will still fall and the sun shine, though differently than before. When I say "nature," I mean a certain set of human ideas about the world and our place in it. The death of those ideas begins with concrete changes in the reality around us - changes that scientists can measure and enumerate. More and more frequently, these changes will clash with our perceptions until our sense of nature as eternal and separate is washed away, and we will see all too clearly what we have done." - Bill McKibben

"The Earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the Earth.
All things are connected like the blood that unites us all.
We did not weave the web of life, we are merely a strand in it.
Whatever man does to the web of life, man does to himself."
Chief Seattle

The Wetiko revolution declared War on Nature 10 millennia ago.

If humanity does not halt the Wetiko revolution War on Nature
humanity will lose the ecosystems that sustain all Life!

"There are fundamental problems of philosophy at the root our social culture. The flaw is unreformable. Unless the idea that the world is a resource for us to use is dealt with, unless humans can find their way home again, then the problems will continue to grow." - Dave Foreman

There is an ancient hermetic wisdom, the law of correspondence, as above so below, as within so without, as in the macrocosm so in the microcosm.

Reality works as a great oneness in which the whole is reflected in every part.

"Man, know thyself, and thou shalt know thy universe" - Temple of Eleusis

The materialistic intellect or rational intellect understands nothing it cannot see, touch, taste, hear or smell as it refuses to acknowledge it has more than five senses.

Leaving unity behind in the fog of infancy the rational intellect has reached the point of only experiencing separation.

Religiously speaking we would say that the materialistic intellect is seperated from God, and therefore seperated from God's creation.

A life of simplicity, of moderation and peace, of compassion for one another, of respect for all creation and of harmony with nature is the spiritual way out of this tragedy of seperation.

Humans are of Nature

"Many ecopsychologists seem to share a belief that modern humans are somehow separated or disconnected from nature. To most ecopsychologists, the existence of a human / nature disconnection in most modern individuals and in modern culture as a whole may be self-evident: In industrial social cultures, most people live indoors and most interactions take place either with other people or with human-made artifacts. Most people spend more time watching television than being outdoors. More people go to theme parks than go to national parks. Many ecopsychologists claim that this physical separation from the natural world leads to a psychological disconnection, that the physical separation arises from the psychological alienation." - John Scull

Reality is entirely subject to the Rule of Nature.

Humankind, observing reality, understands many Physical Laws of Nature.

Humankind, observing reality, has come to understand Natural Law.
Individually coming into awareness of true reality, understanding the actions of the Physical Laws of Nature and the moral implications of Natural Law, we are required as humans to embrace diversity, to live with compassion and work for an entire overhaul and restructuring of MICE culture.

Foremost humankind must relearn to live in harmony with the Earth.

illusion of indvdual consciousness

Wise men know that we cannot segregate the human heart from the environment and say that once one is reformed everything will be improved.

Humans are organic and are at one with the Earth.

The environment itself deeply affectes the inner life.

Mankind, granted the faculty of Reason by the Creator, was given the power to discover the Secrets of Nature.

Mankind, therefore, has the responsibility to use this power only in a positive way, to ensure that balance of nature is maintained on the Earth.

But that is not the current situation

Change is natural and continual in all life but disruptive and powerful change caused by human greed and thoughtlessness does not give nature, or mankind, time to adapt.

Mankind needs to preserve the diversity of life not only for its own sake, but for ours too.

Abdu'l-Bahá sketches the following image of the future state of life on Earth when he says:

"The Lord of Mankind hath fashioned this human realm to be a Garden of Eden, an Earthly paradise. If, as it must, it findeth the way to harmony and peace, to compassion and mutual trust, it will become a true abode of bliss, a place of manifold blessings and unending delights. Therein shall the rays of the Sun of Truth shine forth over the Earth."

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 created 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 Life - 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 Life 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 of America 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 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.
