"Reading books as part of a personal search for
knowledge does not make one a mere consumer, because the search is
self-directed and the information subject to independent, uncoerced selection
and judgement." - Charles Eisenstein
As a child i
remember one of my favorite times of our family's daily routine was at the end
of the day before bed when my mother would settle us down by
reading a story.
The narratives carried me
away giving me something to fantasize about as i drifted off to
As an asthmatic, sickly child i
spent a lot of time reading.
The first author i remember
reading was A A Milne.
reading Robert Heinlein in elementary school when the
city librarian showed me a shelf with his books.
All written word is an
attempt to convey an emotion, a thought, an image
of something we sense in the world we live in, either externally or
A speaker's or writer's
thoughts and feelings will never be conceptualized in the
reader's or listener's mind
precisely as the original images of
those emotions, thoughts and feelings were
first experienced by the orator or author.
We may believe a certain
conceptual image to be true but how do we know that the image we hold in our
mind of this certain thing is exactly the thing that appears in the mind of the
individual who we intend to convey the image of our belief to? In reality these
images of our beliefs can never be precisely the same.
individual has the same life as any other unique individual. Two humans can
stand and look at a work of art but
neither will have exactly the same impression of it. They can not have
exactly the same impression
because everything they have previously experienced will act as a filter for what they
feel, for what they see. The same is true of the written word.
The intent here is to educate
you to the breadth, the depth and
the dimensions of the emotions,
thoughts and of the images that sparked this
man's or that
woman's imagination to the point were they had to try
to express their emotions, their thoughts,
and the images they saw in their
mind's eye into the written
Readers are inclined by sensibility
to look beneath the surface, to analyze and
to make distinctions in all material they read.
As Americans, we need to hold on to the freedom to
make crucial distinctions, to see clearly, to think
intelligently and logically, to avoid
the siren songs of prejudice,
sectarianism, of simplistic
reductive rhetoric and
propaganda, regardless of the source.
As citizens of the Earth this appears especially important as political
extremists with 'master plans'
encourage us to think about one another not as human beings but in ignorant
categories that grow broader,
coarser, more heartless and brutal.
We need to stay exquisitely attuned
to the chasm between our own
observations of reality and the lies
we are being fed.
As lovers of knowledge and the
truth of reality we cannot forget what
literature continues to teach us: that
each of us is a unique entity that shares the mystery called human life and which, for a
intelligent thoughtful individual,
leads to a bottomless well of empathy and compassion.
In the illuminating light
of compassion the reality of the Earth, the
reality of the Natural Law of God and the
Truth of the Law of God are clearly
revealed to any who diligently seek.
"As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not
as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount
of knowledge but it will be of far less value to you than a much smaller amount
if you have not thought it over for yourself; because only through ordering
what you know by comparing every truth with every other truth can you take
complete possession of your knowledge and get it into your power." - Arthur
be extremely frightening as the only control over reality that any individual human can exert within
reality is insignificant as it is bounded by their immediate environment. Even
so there is nothing more beautiful than reality if you can just see reality as
reality truly is.
The intent here is to awaken rational reason in the
individual to open your mind's eye to
the way the human mind functions, your
relationship with your own consciousness,
the reality of life and the reality of life on Earth.
If you fully
explore this web site you will
cycle through images of concepts of the
reality of existence and how our
consciousness relates it back to us. Open
your soul up and see that the soul of each and every other human on this Earth
is much more like you than different from you.
All I can do is point
you toward the door behind which the mountain lies. You have to find the door,
build up the courage to open the door, open the door and then step through the
door. At the point you will begin the
journey of awakening
into enlightenment. Once you have built
up reserve strength then you can you will find that you are ready to climb to
the peak of the mountain were you will be able to look out over the landscape
with a fresh apperception.
Hidden within the text are the secrets that will
be revealed to those who search diligently!!!
"In great and sudden difficulties, a bold and
courageous effort will frequently succeed,
where reason or deliberation could give no assistance, for when the enemy is
within the walls, it is too late for consultation." - Desiderius Erasmus
This web site is not a commercial web
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
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 a system of philosophy 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
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.
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.
