"If your creative force now turns to the
place of the soul, you will see how your soul becomes green and how its field
bears wonderful fruit." - Carl Gustav Jung
"We live in a world where ideas and
innovation are paramount. People cant be creative if they are exhausted.
When people work when they are tired, they make mistakes. If we have learned anything from the
quality movement, it is that the cost of finding and fixing
mistakes is greater than the cost of
preventing them. So, give people time off."
Organizational Behavior, Graduate School of
Business, Stanford University
"The boundless free flow of creative
expression is what keeps us physically and mentally supple, as a child. When we
attempt to control it, limit it, mortgage it to the
acceptable and safe, then the bounds of that safety project themselves onto
body and mind, subjecting both to a severely limited range of motion that
hardens over time.
Play does not require
willpower to stay focused and overcome our
natural desires; it is natural desire manifest. When we play, we are
willing to try things without guarantee of their eventual usefulness or value;
yet paradoxically, it is precisely when we let go
of such motivations that we produce the things of greatest use. Because the
creativity of play is spontaneous, unbidden, and impervious to any rote
formulization, we must consider that it comes from a
source beyond ourselves." -

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness
and wickedness of men who by their wickedness
suppress the truth. For what can be
known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to
them. For his invisible
attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly
perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in
the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they
knew God they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became
futile in their thinking and their
senseless minds were darkened. Claiming
to be wise, they became fools." - Romans 1:18-22

"When they did evolve,

YHVH and the Elohim gods ("Elohim"

religions, they put together a YHVH from which, in some important
ways, we are still suffering. Biblical scholars are clear that
YHVH evolved originally from a
tribal chief, and has always kept much of the
authoritarian character of that ancient tribal
chief. The covenant between that YHVH and his people was based on an
earlier Hittite treaty between a ruler and his subjects. That covenant says
"I'll be your ruler and you will be my people. I'll protect you if you obey,
and punish you if you disobey." That's the attitude that still lets Western
believers move way too effortlessly to persecuting or murdering those who believe
differently. It's been harder to shrug that
YHVH off as irrelevant, because its
followers may kill you for it - as many martyrs throughout history have
discovered the hard and painful way." - Davidson Loehr

Israel and Ugarit both practiced a
yearly ritual known as the sending out of the "scapegoats"; one for
god and one for a demon. A goat is sent into the
wilderness for Azazel, a
demon, and one is sent into the
Yahweh. This rite is
known as a "eliminatory" rite; that is,
corruption, in this case
communal sin, is placed on
the head of the goat and it is sent away. In this way it was believed that,
magically, the corruption and
communal sin was removed
from the community.
"Aaron is to lay both hands on the head of the live
goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites -
all their sins - and put them on the goat's head. Aaron shall send the goat
away into the desert in the care of a man appointed for the task. The goat will
carry on itself all their sins to a solitary place; and the man shall release
it into the desert." - Leviticus 16:21-22

at Ugarit; with one notable difference -
at Ugarit a woman
priest was involved in the ritual as well.
The rituals performed in Ugaritic worship involved a great deal of
alcohol and sexual promiscuity.

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

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 mass 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.
