wisdom was self-knowledge

"Wisdom is like rain.
the Source is limitless,
it comes according to the season."

Rumi


Chinese charater for wisdom

It may be an unfortunate reality that human life span
may be too short for most humans ever to attain wisdom
.

Throughout human history only those embarking
on the quest for truth open the door to wisdom.


The Difference Between Knowledge and Wisdom




"The first point of wisdom is to discern that which is false;
the second, to know that which is true." - Lactantius


"Developing wisdom is the process of bringing our minds into
accordance with the Way things really are. Through this process we
gradually remove the incorrect perceptions of reality
." - Dalai Lama

"He who in early days was unwise but later found wisdom, he sheds
a light over the world like that of the moon when free from clouds
."

Dhammapada




"Wisdom, or the art of living wisely, is perhaps only another name for prudential ethics which constitutes a very large part of all ethics."

Henry Hazlitt




"Whatever wisdom constituently is, it is like a seedless plant;
it may be reared when it appears, but it cannot be voluntarily produced."

Thomas Paine

"Characteristic of wisdom is not to do desperate things."

Henry David Thoreau


"Science is organized knowledge.

Wisdom is organized life."

Immanuel Kant


"Skepticism, like chastity, should not be relinquished too readily.
The wisest mind has something yet to learn." - George Santayana


"It should be noted that the seeds of wisdom that are to bear fruit in the intellect are sown less by critical studies and learned monographs than by insight, broad impressions, and flashes of intuition." - Carl von Clausewitz



mother of wisdom

Saul of Tarsus refers to Jesus in I Corinthians 1: 24 as the "Sophia of God"

three faces of the Sophia of Christ

self-knowledge and

self-awareness

are the sisters

of self-consciousness


"I came from the Lumière Infinie, that I might reveal everything. I have awakened the divine spark of Sophia, that it might bear fruit." - Sophia of Jesus


"Sophia is no rarefied divine being who dwells on high.

Sophia goes out into the world and gets her hands dirty.

Wisdom sets a table inviting those who appreciate her to partake.

The inclusive meals of Jesus, where he located his most intense teachings, deliberately transgressed the purity codes by including those considered unclean - terrorists, madmen, outcasts, heretics, and blasphemers.

An alliance of expediency between the religious and the political authorities murdered Jesus, Sophia's prophet and messenger." - Joanna Manning

Sophia in Greek, Asherah in Sumerian, Hohkma in Hebrew, Sapientia in Latin, Sheela-na-gigs in Celtic - all mean wisdom.

Sophia is revered as the Wise Bride of Solomon.

The Song of Songs - known as Song of Solomon or Canticle of Canticles - speaks of Solomon's marriage to Sophia, a descended or fallen goddess.

There are many references to Sophia in the Book of Proverbs and in the apocryphal books of Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon.

Sophia is the deity of wisdom called by the name Holy Spirit in Christianity.




"Who can number the sand of the sea,

and the drops of rain, and the days of eternity?


Who can find out the height of heaven,

the breadth of the earth,

the deep and wisdom?


Wisdom hath been before all things,

and the understanding of prudence from everlasting.


The Word of God most high is the fountain of wisdom,

her ways are everlasting commandments."

Ecclesiasticus 1:2-5 (Sirach)

unique library index

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.
