Chinese charater for religion

All of life is a meditation.

Most meditation is unintentional.

Unintentional concern about material conditions is a burden never lifted.

Material concerns can never be completely solved as they are infinite.

There is absolutely no way of making a organic organism perfectly secure.

Human beings rise above material concerns when realizing satisfaction of the flesh is an impossibility that can never be accomplished in reality.

Adults have attempted to communicate spiritual consciousness to children throughout human history by fabricating mythical narratives in attempts to explain the ineffable in a metaphoric allegoric manner.

Myths, always about the human journey through life, are designed to bring us to the integral level of consciousness that is spiritual in essence.

Myths offer life models.

Life models to live by.

Living models to imitate and mimic.

For the living models of myths to perform their function correctly they must be both culturally and temporally in tune with their social group.

The religious myth, a model for living, must be appropriate for time and place to function smoothly as the moral order.

Dogmatic literalist interpretations of religious myths belongs in the mystical past when giants roamed and gods descended to Earth.

To interpret religious myths literally is to become out of sync with present social cultural conditions and values.

To accept religious myths literally is to descend into a hyperreality in which everything must be given a mask to conform to the dogmatic belief system.

As children grow into adults they recognize the impossibility of interpreting the imaginative religious myths literally and lose faith in the dogmatic literalist religion that has been taught them.

The child must take on adult responsibilities if the tribe is to survive.

Initiation ceremonies into the tribe are designed to break the narcissitic worldview of a child and initiate a paradigm shift in understanding.

Until this time the main responsibility of the child was to simply survive in an inhospitable world of ice and steam but now, he or she, must contribute to the continual prosperity of the tribe.

So the tribe introduces the child to their ineffable patron, breaks the narcissitic worldview and welcomes the newly reborn member a place at the meeting table with the adults.

All cultural symbols originate in a cultures founding psychological system.

The cultural symbols of the Abrahamic traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam originated in a priestly elite of Akhenaten that had fled the counter revolution that deposed Tutankhamun.


Moshe Rabbenu needed a revised theological system to that of the deposed Tutankhamun while adhering to the monotheistic tradition began by Akhenaten with which to lead their band of ignorant nomadic warriors.

Moshe Rabbenu cobbled together various local myths to come up with the socially engineered foundation for their local nomadic warrior god Yahweh.

Unfortunately certain ponerological elements crept in originally to keep the warriors under social control and later to assimilate the Canaanites.

To keep the warriors under control the priests of Yahweh came up with the concept of being born into sin after being separated from Yahweh.

The idea of inherent spiritual corruption placed upon your Eternal Soul at birth as ordained by Yahweh puts the victim into a servile condition to those who claim to be interpreters of the will of Yahweh and those who claim to be intercessors for Yahweh.

To assimilate the Canaanites the Cult of Yahweh had to demonize the Canaanites religion, originally an Egyptian colony, as Baal, fertility god of the Canaanites was the Apis bull, fertility god of the Egyptians.

The Cult of Yahweh hybrid engineered religious tradition rejected the symbiotic relation with nature by derogation of 'nature religions'.

The forces of nature define reality quite eloquently but do not serve the needs of social engineers.

The shift from a nature religion to a sociological religion makes it difficult for us to return back to Nature.

When the focus was moved off nature the focus was moved onto identifying human behavior as either good or evil.

The foundation of every religion is laid in the mortar of cultural ethics.

Categorization of behavior as good or evil morphs over time as ethics of good or evil, defined by the tribe overtime, change.

Some see James C. Dobson, Morris Cerullo, David Koresh, Marshall Applewhite, Jimmy Swaggart, Marion Gordon Robertson, Ted Haggard, William Eugene Scott as exercising rather than exorcising demons.

A religion with a priestly class defining morality will be in for a rough ride.

Original archetypical conceptual imagery may be corrupt to the point it conveys a message which is the anti-thesis of its original intent.

"Every religion is true when understood metaphorically.

When a religion gets stuck to its own metaphors, interpreting metaphors as literal facts, then you are in trouble." - Joseph Campbell

The mystical experience and its interpretation through metaphors becomes a threat to the existing order.

"The difference between a priest and a shaman is that the priest is a functionary and the shaman is someone who has had a mystical experience.

In our tradition it is the monk who seeks the mystical experience, while the priest is the one who has studied to serve the community.

I had a friend who attended an international meeting of the Roman Catholic meditative orders, which was held in Bangkok.

He told me that the Catholic monks had no problems understanding the Buddhist monks, but the clergy of the two religions were unable to understand each other.

In India, I have seen a red ring put around a lingam stone, and then the lingam stone is regarded as an incarnation of the mystery of life.

Typically people think of things in practical material terms, but you can think of anything in terms of its mystery.

Take any object.

Hold the object.

Regard the object in terms of mystery.

What is its essence?

How does it look in perspective?

Is every facet identical?

This essentially consecrates the intimate object mentally making it sacred.

Do you really know what anything truly is?

It exists in time and space.

How mysterious it is that anything should exist!

Make the object the center of meditation, the center of the intelligible mystery of existence, which fully immerses and surrounds us.

This object now becomes the center of the universe.

The axis mundi is the still point in the chaotic frantic motion of reality.

In mythological systems in which the metaphor of the mystery of reality is the Father you are going to have a different set of thought structures than if the metaphor for the wisdom and mystery of reality is the Mother.

Christ says, "No one gets to the Father but by me."

The Father that he is talking about is the Creator.

It might be that you can get to God, the Father, only by way of Christ.

But suppose you need a more nurturing feminine approach.

Then, perhaps, you need to go by way of the Mother.

There you might prefer Wicca and hymns to the Goddess.

That is simply another way to get to the mystery of life.

Each religion holds within itself a complete worldview that works well only within the bounded imagery of the culture as that first designed it.

Our God is the only True God!

"How can any cultural in-group claim ownership of God?

This is a problem you get in the book of Kings and in Samuel.

The various Hebrew kings were sacrificing on the mountain tops.

And they did wrong in the sight of Yahweh.

The Cult of Yahweh was a specific movement in the Hebrew community, which finally conquered the Land of Canaan.

The Cult of Yahweh pushed through a temple bound patriarchal warrior god, normally worshiped by nomads outdoors, against the nature cult of the Mother which was celebrated in all farming cultures by settled peoples.

This imperialistic thrust of an 'in group' culture continues in the West." - Joseph Campbell

"We are by nature sorters.

We evolved in small bands of hunter-gathers when there was a selection for within-group amity and between-group enmity.

With our fellow in-group members, we are cooperative and altruistic.

Unfortunately, the downside to this social bonding is that we are also quite tribal and xenophobic to out-group members.

Only when all people are considered to be members of one global in-group can we begin to attenuate these out-group associations." - Michael Shermer

Old testament biblical perspectives of reality are ponerlogically biased.

They are not in accord with our current conceptual understanding of either reality or the dignity of man.

The Abrahamic religions, as institutionally practiced, are good examples of the failure of religion to function as originally designed.

These three religions were designed for entirely different cultural conditions.

Right there in Book of Genesis: We are to be the masters of the Earth.

understanding of Яeality is based on the biblical condemnation of nature.

Separation from nature condemns man to separation from God.

The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion 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 pers∞nal relati∞n with the Æon through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the w☸rld ec☸n☸mic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global indus✈rial mili✈ary en✈er✈ainmen✈ complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards 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 p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c☢rp☢rate media psych☢l☢gical ☢perati☢ns. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra¢tion and ¢oer¢ion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
