"One method for bringing about bodhicitta, the aspiration to attain highest enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings, is Exchanging Self for Others.

In this method we work at recognizing how dependent we are on others for all we have.

We contemplate how the homes we live in, the clothes we wear, the roads we drive on, have all been created by the hard work of others.

So much work has gone into providing us with the shirt we are wearing, from planting the cottonseed to weaving the fabric and sewing the garment.

The slice of bread we eat had to be baked by someone.

The wheat had to be planted by someone else and, after irrigation and fertilization, had to be harvested and then milled into flour.

This had to be kneaded into dough and then baked appropriately.

It would be impossible to count all the people involved in providing us with a simple slice of bread.

Even our personal virtues, such as our patience and ethical sense, are all developed in dependence upon others.

Through this train of thought we come to recognize how dependent we are on others for all we enjoy in life.

We must work at developing this recognition as we go about our everyday lives." - Tenzin Gyatso

Self-control, seen as supreme virtue to the Greeks,
lies at the foundation of Western civilization.

The Greeks were suspicious of technical activity as it was seen as brute force that could spin out of control.

"The rejection of technique was a deliberate, positive activity involving self-mastery, recognition of destiny, and the application of a given conception of life.

Only the most modest techniques were permitted - those which would respond to material needs in such a way those needs would not get the upper hand." - Jaques Ellul

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 coöperation. Coöperation 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.
