life

Chinese charater for daily life

"This life is the way,
the long sought-after way
to the unfathomable, which we call divine.
There is no other way, all other ways are false paths.
I found the right way, it led me to you, to my soul."
- Carl Custav Jung

life lessons

"What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
It is the little shadow which runs across the grass
and loses itself in the sunset." – Crowfoot


Message From the Future — "Life vs. Entropy"


"Never separate the life you live from the words you speak."
Senator Paul Wellstone


"There is no such thing as an insignificant life, only the insignificance of mind that refuses to grasp the implications. Each of us has a very important role to play in a healthy, sustainable world." - Laurence Overmire

"There comes a point in people's lives when worldly goals lose their significance and life loses its perceived value. When this happens, it seems as though life in any meaningful sense has come to an end. In fact, however, this apparent endpoint can be a turning point toward a new beginning. It is a paradox that we sometimes need to lose our way in order truly to find it, or, as Jesus says in the Gospels, that to save one's life is to lose it and to lose one's life for his sake is to save it."- Michael Washburn, the paradox of finding one's way by losing it



life - one per person

Welcome to Life


"By maintaining a constant internal environment removed from chemical and thermal equilibrium all living creatures create a distinction between themselves and the outside environment.

All modern definitions of life draw on this concept, which is called homeostasis.

Because homeostasis entails a localized arrest or reversal of entropy,
it demands an energy source, for example the sun,
through which entropy is in effect exported to the outside environment.

By definition, then, life creates a dualism, an inside and an outside,
and what's more requires an irreversible taking from the environment.

Speaking in terms of thermodynamics, life exists only at an (entropic) cost to the environment.

Life, then, not only requires but actually is a separating off
of a temporarily self-maintaining part of the universe.


Contrary to our fundamental cultural assumptions, though,
this separation is neither permanent nor absolute, but admits to degrees.

We are all permeable to our environment as we routinely exchange materials with the outside.

We are semi-permanent patterns of flux with an existence independent of the specific material substances that compose us, just as an ocean wave only temporarily comprises a certain collection of water molecules. The molecules simply bob up and down as the wave moves forward onto new ones.

Similarly, even though the matter of the universe cycles through each of us at varying rates and in a unique way, we share this matter and, in our relationships, co-determine each other's ever-mutating patterns of flux." - Charles Eisenstein

"Why even I myself often think
I know little or nothing of my real life."
Walt Whitman


being

"When we begin to view life as other than a zero-sum game where my gain is your loss, then the struggle against the world loses motivation and instead of trying to control life, we let it in." - Charles Eisenstein

to have presence in the realm of perceived reality;

to occupy a place or position; to continue or remain as before;

used with the present participle of another verb to form the progressive tense;

used with the past participle of another verb to form the passive voice;

used in archaic or literary constructions with some intransitive verbs to form the perfect tense.



to be

to exist

To be, or not to be !

Modal statements ought to be reinterpreted so as to be explained or analysed as statements.

To be is to be determinate. To be determinate is to be finite, non-all. To be finite is to be conditional.

Whatever appears to be, i.e., to be just what it is and nothing else, cannot really be whatever it is not.

The verb to exist is never properly used as a mere copula, but points to things that stand forth, or have a substantive being.




Celtic Tree of Life

The Tree Of Life

In Celtic mythology, the Tree of Life is a sacred component - all of spirituality, evolution, and understanding are symbolized in its shape and its delicate leaves. At its base, the roots and trunk of the tree represent the realm of the lower world, with all of its earthly desires and urges. As the tree stretches towards the sky, it becomes a symbol of the upper world, and, finally, the heavens, which promise a celestial reward to the enlightened…

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.



This website defines a new religious ideology 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 the religion aptly 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 condemning system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex of America 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.
