"It takes two to speak the Truth:
speak, and another to hear."
- Henry David
"Truth is a metaphysical force.
When you do
battle with the truth,
you do battle with the universe,
universe's Kung Fu
is superior to your Kung Fu."
- Brandon Smith
"Whoever walks in truth generates life."
"The truth is always the strongest
argument." - Sophocles
Toleration of people
who differ in convictions and
habits requires a residual
awareness of the
complexity of truth and the
opposing view having some
light on one or the other facet of a
many-sided truth. - Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr
"Intelligence is the shadow of objective
How can the shadow vie with the sunshine?" - Rumi
"If you wish to see the truth then hold no
opinion for or against. The struggle
one likes and what
one dislikes is the
disease of the mind."
- Hsin Hsin Ming
"O' Great Spirit help me always to speak the
truth quietly, to listen with an open mind
when others speak, and to
remember the peace that may be found in
- Cherokee Prayer
"What "oppression" is more grievous than that a
soul seeking the truth, and wishing to
attain unto the knowledge of God, should know not where to go for it and from
whom to seek it?"
"Truth is a pathless land. Man cannot
come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not
through any philosophic knowledge or
psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship,
through the understanding
of the of his own mind, through observation
through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection." - J.
"Truth is invariable - it is requisite to
man - it can never harm him - his very necessities, sooner or later, make him
sensible of this; oblige him to acknowledge it. The voice of truth can only be
heard by generous souls accustomed to
reflection, whose sensibilities make them lament the numberless calamities
showered on the Earth by political and religious
tyranny - whose enlightened minds
contemplate with horror the immensity, the
ponderosity of that series of misfortunes which error
has in all ages overwhelmed mankind."- Baron
"Truth, in its struggles for recognition,
passes through four distinct stages. First, we say it is damnable, , disorderly, and will surely disrupt
society. Second, we declare it is heretical,
infidelic and contrary to the Bible. Third,
we say it is really a matter of no importance either one way or the other.
Fourth, we aver that we have always upheld it and believed it." Elbert
"He whose mind is
unsteady, who knows not the path of
Truth, whose faith and peace are ever
wavering, he shall never reach fullness of wisdom. But he whose
mind in calm
self-control is free from the lust of desires, who has risen above good and evil,
he is awake and has no fear." -

"It appears that
human denial trumps the truth in situations in
which the pain of accepting
reality exceeds the ability of the human mind to process it. We
even have a negative term in our lexicon - "whistleblowers" - to depict those who report a
truth that people do not want to
accept; thus, the truth-seekers, in so many instances, are the ones who become
the victims." - Karl Strandberg
One of the things that
divides men and continues to divide men,
both spiritually and physically,
is the fight for truth.
"It is always best to think first for ourselves on
any subject, and then to others for the correction or improvement of our own
sentiments. The quantity of knowledge thus gained may be less, but the quality
will be superior. Truth received on authority, or acquired without labor, makes
but a feeble impression." - William Ellery Channing

"When I think
of people I admire most I find that I do so mainly because they have an
unshakable allegiance to truth and to a fundamental integrity. They recognize
and acknowledge that there is often an obvious "right thing to do." We can
argue that everything is relative but I think that would just be mental
gymnastics to avoid admitting it can be done. People who resist admitting
there's a right thing to do are usually the type of people that regularly
choose the obvious "wrong thing to do." People like politicians. People that
don't have an allegiance to truth rely on complicating everything in order to
obliterate any clear understanding of it. As one of my editors often says, the
great thing about truth is it has no internal contradictions. It's
self-evident. Lies are loaded with internal contradictions so people who use
them must create a convoluted complexity and/or misdirection and denial to
frustrate anyone that looks too closely. That's why most big lies endure for so
long. It's incredibly difficult to untangle the mucked up web of lies and
deceit. For my part I enjoy the simplicity of truth. Luckily there are a many
moments in life when there is a "right thing to do" and it's obvious to anyone
who has an allegiance to truth." - Bruce McDonald
"Those who set their mind in harmony
free from the bonds of death."
"Death opens our hearts.
Death reminds us,
with a clarity that trumps all logic,
only compassion is real."
- Charles Eisenstein
"Americans seem as reluctant as
rationally or even
just honestly about death."
- Meghan Daum
"There is the truth," the poet
concluded. "It does not wipe out death. It does not diminish space, nor halt
time. But it makes us what we are in essence.
Happiness needs unhappiness.
Joy goes hand in hand with
sorrow. It is thanks to the shadow that we
exist. We must not dream of an absurd
abstraction. We must guard
the bond that links us to blood
and earth. 'Just as
I am!' Remember that. We are a great mixture. We are more than
we believe." - Henri Barbusse
"If you tell the truth you don't have to

evolved to stimulate that same oxytocin system to create female-male

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 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.
