Respect Others: See the actual
individual by acknowledging his or her validity. Respect for the whole person
entails listening to others' opinions, and sharing their feelings, time and
physical space. At the core of "respect others" is the "Golden Rule," do unto others as you would
have them do unto you.
Accept Reality: The glass is always full -
"half-full" of water and "half-full" of air. Those who accept reality live
longer and happier lives. A positive attitude is an emotional contagion easily
Pay Attention: The root of "attention" is "to attend to." That
means that every act of acknowledgement or kindness begins with "attending to"
the other person. In other words, to be at our best in our human encounters,
get off of auto pilot and pay attention.
Stay Keenly Aware: Our culture
makes self-gratification a must-do, reducing the moral energy we have for
others. Self-centered behaviors can put altruism in the back seat. There are
opportunities to make a difference in every encounter.
Words of honesty can inspire others, lift their spirits, and "reconcile them to
the pain life."
Accept Others: George
Bernard Shaw, in his play "Pygmalion," speaks of "having the same manner
for all human souls - in short, behaving as if you were in heaven
one soul is as good as another." The crux of accepting others is to welcome all
with the same enthusiasm that we
experience within the feeling of belonging.
Say Thank You: Such a simple
deed, the acknowledging of an act of service or kindness by saying "thank
Rediscover Silence: In an
age when background noises are constant, some fear we are becoming accustomed
to noise. Is that a problem? Noise can take us away from ourselves;
silence can be the bridge to our
innermost thoughts and tranquility. Ralph
Waldo Emerson said, "Let us be silent - so we may hear the whisper of the
Listen: Instead of focusing on what we want to say and our own
needs, good listening requires that our attention go to others. Demonstrate
that we value others opinons.
Keep Balanced: Nonassertive behavior is a
health risk. Bulling behavior is a health risk. Use a scale to balance to find
that happy medium where you express your needs without intruding on others'
needs and do it in a calm and kindly way.
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 Life - 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 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 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.
