"New beliefs seldom win acceptance unless they are nearer
to the truth than what they replace." - Bertrand Russell

"The human understanding resembles not a dry light, but resembles a tincture of the will and passions, which generate their own system accordingly: for man always believes more readily that which he prefers. In short, his feelings imbue and corrupt his understanding in innumerable and sometimes imperceptible ways." - Francis Bacon




One day a man came to the great teacher Bahaudin.

He asked for help in his problems, and guidance on the path of the Way.

Bahaudin told him to abandon spiritual studies, and to leave his court at once.

A kind-hearted visitor began to remonstrate with Bahaudin.

'You shall have a demonstration' said the sage.

At that moment a bird few into the room, darting hither and thither, not knowing where to go in order to escape.

The Sufi waited until the bird settled near the only open window of the chamber; and then suddenly clapped his hands.

Alarmed, the bird flew straight through the open window to freedom.

'To him that sound must have been something of a shock, even an affront, do you not agree!' said Bahaudin.

"I write this in the year 2012, a year that many belief systems regard as transitional or transformational, even cataclysmic. Interestingly, science, tradition and myth seem to be converging." - Laurence Overmire

6 False Beliefs and the 6 False Responsibilities

#1: False Belief: Unpleasurable moments are to be avoided if at all possible.

False Responsibility: You believe you must remain in control of the situation at all times.

True Responsibility: Welcome deviations from expectations as an opportunity to observe and better understand your environment.


#2: False Belief: You are as valuable, or worthless, depending on how you are judged by others.

False Responsibility: You believe you must attempt to win the approval of everyone you meet.

True Responsibility: Be real. Learn what it means to be in possession of yourself, starting with reclaiming your life.


#3: False Belief: You believe you are responsible for the happiness or unhappiness that others feel.

False Responsibility: You must always compromise yourself to ensure the contentment of everyone around you.

True Responsibility: Stay out of the lives of all those who expect you to do for them what they won't do for themselves.


#4: False Belief: You believe you must learn to "tolerate" friends and family oppositional states.

False Responsibility: You must constantly smooth over rocky situations to ensure that no one rocks anyone's boat enough to tip it over.

True Responsibility: See that all oppositional states contain elements of negative subconscious emotions. Refuse to respond to negative subconscious emotions in yourself, or anyone else.


#5: False Belief: You can change what happened yesterday by creating a new narrative.

False Responsibility: You believe you must continually revisit your past to assure contentment tomorrow.

True Responsibility: You can't change what happened yesterday and once you understand what happened yesterday you can be a new person right now.


#6: False Belief: Punishing yourself proves you really care about whatever you're suffering over.

False Responsibility: You failed - you believe you must suffer !

True Responsibility: Agreeing not to punish yourself for innocent mistakes - we all make mistakes - makes as much sense as blaming yourself for the earthquake that just leveled the prison you were just released from.

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 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.

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.
