"Knowledge is faith mediated by symbols."
"Self-confidence is the basis of
faith." - Sri Sathya Sai Baba
"True faith and
true knowledge are not
antithetical but interwoven."
Faith is defined as: "That which previously occurred is likely to occur
Confidence in individual ability to have properly discerned
Generally, the persuasion of the mind that something, tangible
or intangible, that actually exists has been properly identified.
Knowledge is an essential element in all
faith, and is sometimes spoken of
as an equivalent to faith (John 10:38; 1 John 2:3).
Faith is not
the stupid credulity of an awestruck
Faith is the consciousness and the confident of compassion.
Faith is the cry of reason, which persists in denying the absurd, even
in the presence of the unknown.
Faith is a sentiment necessary to the
soul, just as breathing is to life; it is the
courage, and the reality of
Faith does not consist of the affirmation of this symbol or that, but
of a genuine and constant aspiration towards the truths which are all veiled by
Faith being the aspiration to the
unknown, the object of faith is absolutely
and necessarily this one thing - mystery.
In order to formulate its
aspirations, faith is forced to borrow aspirations and images from the known."
- Eliphas Levi
"The leap of faith is really a
very ordinary operation. We take it every time we fall in compassion, expect
kindness from someone in return for a good deed, impulsively sacrifice some
little piece of our self-interest." - Lee
"My faith is
weak, my face is blind from all that
shimmering blaze of the desert sun. The heat lies on me like lead.
Thirst torments me, I dare not think how unendingly long my way is, and
above all, I see nothing in front of me."
Eternal Soul answers, "You speak as if
you have learned nothing. Can you not wait? Should everything fall into your
lap ripe and finished? You teem with intentions and desirousness! Do you still
not know that the way to truth stands open only to
those without intentions?" - Carl Gustav Jung
"People of faith believe
for the same reason a person holds to any worldview - it makes sense of a wider range
of our deepest experiences. The view that religion is ultimately grounded in
fear is just as much an article of "faith" as any.
And less cogent, for it fails to consider the
possibility that faith
appeals not to our weaknesses but to our strengths, that believers believe not
because their fears are soothed but because, like hearing a great piece of
music, they have been awakened,
emboldened, "surprised by joy." - Stanley R. MooreTrue

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 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.
