Journey From the Psychology of Evil to the Psychology of Heroism


The hero personality module, one of the major personality archetypes, is very important for the psyche, especially a traumatized psyche.

To engage in a task that seems impossible to succeed at the psyche must enter into a mode of thinking alien to survival needs.

Mere mortal man may accomplish amazing feats like demigods.

The hero participates in life courageously in a natural and honorable way.

A hero, in the myths of old, were greater than mere mortal men or women.

The hero, able to leap buildings in a single bound, was considered to be the offspring of the mating of a god or goddess with a mortal woman or man.

The hero, being a son or daughter of the gods, is not any mere mortal.

The hero, a carrier of godly power beyond the reach of mortal men, travels the connection between Heaven and Earth becoming an Avatar of the Divine.



What Makes a Hero?



The hero's sphere of action is in the field of time, in the moment here and now in a sharply defined dual reality - broken into pairs of opposites:

good and evil;

light and dark;

man and woman;

rich and poor.

The hero draws on a power from outside the visible world.

A Celtic hero was recognized by the berserker frenzy (ferg) they fell into, operating in the red haze of angrily boiling blood.

When Cuchulainn returned from his first expedition fifty naked maidens sent to meet him, seized him and submerged him in three tubs of water the first exploded the second boiled over and the third was left heated.

(The link between the word for the heat generated by a warrior under the spell of ferg and its homophone is applied to sexual excitement.)

The concept of reality as a never ending conflict between the dark force of Chaos and the light force of Order is shared by the prophet Zoroaster.

Roman Bishops under Athanasius of Alexandria folded into the synthesized religion of Christianity the battle between Ahura Mazda, Order, and Angra Mainyu, Chaos, to fulfill the needs of Emperor Constantine which included conversion of the Roman Legions, followers of the Mithras Mysteries and Jupiter Optimus Maximus Soter, into Pauline Christian followers of Christ.



spark of light


In Eastern thought good and evil is relative to your position.

When one moves out of the transcendent, one comes into a field of opposites of male and female, of right and wrong, and of light and dark.

When One has eaten of the Tree of Knowledge innocence is lost.

Communion with Creation is suspended, rational mind ceaselessly searches.

Constantly shifting through relational knowledge filed away in the Akashic Records searching for engineered solutions to unsolvable dilemmas.

Everything in the field of time is judged on multiple levels in a dualistic manner by the rational mind - past and future, animate or inanimate.

A multilevel image is painted in a framed perspective within the mind.

The base biological pair of every human subconscious is male and female.

One may be preeminent or may be represented in a more balanced nature.

In Chinese thought this is represented by .

The Animus may undertake the heroic journey of going out into the world, engaging the world, bringing home sustenance and protecting the homeland.

The Anima may nurture offspring, order the household, shepherd the ruminants, cultivate sustenance and keep the home fire burning.

"The knowledge that heroic deeds are recorded and revered encourages acts of bravery and self-sacrifice that otherwise run contrary to the individual sense of self-preservation." - John D. Barrow

obstacles

The Heroic Journey



Every Hero' Journey requires the overcoming of obstacles.

Obstacles may be external or internal but typically involve both elements.

Metaphoric allegories use external obstacles to speak of internal obstacles that every individual faces in the Journey through Life.

The Hero' Journey involves a metamorphosis through time that changes the heroic personality by tempering the Eternal Soul in the Fires of Life.

Mammals are mimics navigating reality by copying survival pattern success.

"Be praised, my Creator, for all your creatures, especially Brother Sun who shines with Lumière Infinie.


Be praised, my Creator, for Sister Moon and the sparkling stars in the expansive infinite heavens.


Be praised, my Creator, for Brother Wind, Air, Cloud and Storm through which you grant sustenance.


Be praised, my Creator, for Sister Water, in her humbleness keep her clean, precious and pure.


Be praised, my Creator, for Brother Fire, through whom you brighten the night. It is He, powerful and strong, crackling away that warms bones on cold nights.


Be praised, my Creator, for Mother Earth, who feeds us producing hearty vegetables, fruits and spicy herbs.


Be praised, my Creator, for standing by those who endure sickness and trial." - Francis of Assisi


"Francis of Assisi's pastoral vision is not entirely unprecedented: for at least the first five centuries of the Church, the dominant Christian symbol was Christ the Good Shepherd instead of Christ on the Cross." - Bill McKibben

"Francis of Assisi, a radical advocate of renewal, had no intention of being original, but merely tried to return to "following the doctrine" of walking in the "footsteps of Jesus." - Jon Sobrino, Jesus the Liberator



Dalai Lama


"Fame or wealth or power

are not qualifications of a spiritual leader!"

Tenzin Gyatso



1937 The 14th Dalai Lama is selected as the Tülku of the 13th Dalai Lama.

A Tülku is a reincarnate custodian or a patriarch that reliably returns to human form of a specific lineage of teachings in Tibetan Buddhism who is empowered and trained from a young age by students of his predecessor.

A Tülku descends to Earth to bring enlightment to his followers.

1939 The 14th Dalai Lama is announced at a public declaration near the town of Bumchen.

The Tülku is brought up inside a monastery, under the direction of a head tutor and a number of other teachers or servants.

He must study hard and adhere to a strict regimen.

He has few if any toys or playmates, and is rarely allowed outside.

Early on, he learns to receive important visitors, take part in complicated rituals, and give blessings to followers and pilgrims.

Countering the bleak academic regimen is an atmosphere of overwhelming, unconditional love.

During every waking moment, monks, family members and awed visitors shower the Tülku with adoration.

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.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
