"Meditate profoundly, that
the secret of things
unseen may be revealed unto you, that you may inhale the sweetness of a
spiritual and imperishable fragrance.
That you may acknowledge the truth
that from time immemorial even unto eternity the Almighty hath tried, and will
continue to try, His
servants, so that light may be distinguished
from darkness, truth from falsehood,
right from wrong, guidance from
error, happiness from misery, and roses
from thorns." - Bahá'u'lláh
the beginning of your meditation you should say to yourself:
not allow my mind to be distracted by thoughts of the
hopes, or fears, nor will I let my mind stray toward
memories of the past.
I will remain focused on
this present moment.'
Once you have cultivated such a will, you take that space between past
and future as the object of meditation - and
simply maintain your awareness of
it, free of any conceptual
thought processes." - Tenzin
beginning of meditation is self-knowledge.
This means being
aware of every movement of
thought and feeling.
Knowing all the layers of my consciousness.
Not only the superficial layers but the hidden,
the deeply concealed activities.
To know the deeply concealed activities, the hidden motives, responses,
thoughts and feelings, there must be tranquility in the conscious mind; that is
the conscious mind must be still in order to receive the projection of the
subconscious." - J. Krishnamurti
"The process by which
we transform our more
instinctual attitude to life, that state of mind which
seeks only to satisfy desire and
avoid discomforts, is what we mean when we use the word meditation.
We tend to be controlled
by our mind, following it along its self-centered path.
is the process whereby we gain control over
stimulation of the mind and guide it in a more virtuous direction.
Meditation may be thought of as a technique by which
we diminish the force of old thought habits and
develop new ones.
We thereby protect ourselves from engaging in
actions of mind, word, or deed that lead to our suffering." -
"Sitting around doing nothing goes
against our cultural programming, which generates feelings of discomfort
that impel us to do something productive.
Certainly this is what many
people feel during empty moments or deliberate experiments at meditation: a
churning unease that says, "I should be doing something."
compulsion is so strong that even spiritual practices such as meditation and
prayer are easily converted into just another thing to do, moments mortgaged to
the campaign of improving one's circumstances.
The first step to freedom is
simply to allow yourself to fully feel whatever there is to feel.
This, and not thought control, is where the true benefit of meditation
lies." - Charles

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 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."
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
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.
