"Once upon a
time, when the science and art of gardening was not yet well established
among men, there was a Master
Gardener. In addition to knowing all the qualities of plants, their
nutritious, medicinal and aesthetic values, he had been granted a knowledge of
the Herb of Longevity, and he
lived for many hundreds of years.
In successive generations, he visited
gardens and cultivated places throughout the World. In one place he planted a
wonderful garden, and instructed the people in its upkeep and even in the
theory of gardening. But, becoming accustomed
to seeing some of the plants come up and flower every year, they soon forgot
that others had to have their seeds collected, that some were propagated from
cuttings that some needed extra watering, and so on. The result was that the
garden eventually became wild, and people started to regard this as the best
garden there could be.
After giving these people many chances to learn,
the Master Gardener expelled them and
recruited another whole band of workers. He warned them that if they did not
keep the garden in order, and study his methods, they would suffer for it.
They, in turn, forgot - and, since they were lazy, tended only those fruits and
flowers which were easily reared and allowed the others to die.
the first trainees came back to them from time to time, saying: 'You should do
this and that, but they drove them away, shouting: 'You are the ones who are
departing from Truth in this matter.'
He made other gardens wherever he could, and yet none was ever
perfect except the one which he himself tended with his chief assistants. As it
became known that there were many gardens and even many methods of gardening
people from one garden would visit those of another, to approve, to criticize,
or to argue.
were written, assemblies of
gardeners were held, gardeners arranged themselves in grades according to
what they thought to be the right order of precedence. As is the way of men the
difficulty of the gardeners remains that they are too easily attracted by the
superficial. They say: 'I like this flower,'and they want everyone else to like
it as well. It may, in spite of its attraction or abundance, be a weed which is
choking other plants which could provide medicines or food which the people and
the garden need for their sustenance and permanency.
gardeners are those who prefer plants of one single color. These they may
describe as 'good'. There are others who will only tend
the plants, while refusing to care about the paths or the gates, or even the
fences. When, it length, the ancient gardener died, he left as his endowment
the whole knowledge of gardening, distributing it among the people who would
understand in accordance with their capacities.
Science as well as the
Art of gardening remained as a scattered heritage.
People who are brought up in one garden
or another generally have been so powerfully instructed as to the benefits or
disadvantages of how the inhabitants see things that
they are almost incapable -
though they make the effort - of realizing that they have to return to the
concept of 'garden'. At the best they generally only accept, reject, suspend
judgement or look for what they imagine
are the common factors.
From time to time true
gardeners do arise.
the abundance of fake
gardens that when they hear of real ones people say: 'Oh, yes.
You are talking about a garden
such as we imagine we already have.'
What they have and what they
imagine are both defective.
Real Experts, who cannot reason with the
fake gardeners, associate for the most
part among themselves, putting into this or that garden something from the
total stock which will enable it to maintain its vitality to some extent. They
are often forced to masquerade,
because the people who want to learn from them seldom know about the fact of
gardening as an art or science underlying everything that they have heard
before. So they ask questions like : 'How can I get a more beautiful flower on
Spiral of Golden Time Druid may work with them because true gardens can
sometimes be brought into being, for the benefit of all mankind. They do not
last long, but it is only through them that the knowledge can be truly learnt
and people can come to see what a garden really is."

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 the Lumière Infinie - 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 the Lumière Infinie 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."

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.
