earthly delight

satisfaction of the flesh

Chinese charaters for never satisfied

"Fulfilled desire may provide a sense of temporary satisfaction; however, the pleasure we experience upon acquiring a new car or home, for example, is usually shortlived.

When we indulge our desires, they tend to increase in intensity and multiply in number.

We become more demanding and less content, finding it more difficult to satisfy our needs." - Tenzin Gyatso


Life is short and pleasures of the flesh beckon.

Avoiding pleasures of the flesh is impossible as pleasured flesh is a requirement of continued existence - we need to eat to survive.

If we don't enjoy what we are eating we can't digest it.

If we are unable to digest and absorb nutrients we die.

Natural desires are 'calls' to perform natural duties as a human animal.

Hedonism needs to be understood for what she is.

Hedonism can never be allowed free reign for if she is not kept securely contained she can entirely absorb individual consciousness.

And yet Hedonism cannot be bound and chained.

Hedonism must be allowed to free range on sunny days but she must be securely locked up on dark stormy nights.

How are we rewarded for keeping Hedonism is check?

- hedonic thermostat resist

- freedom from the trap of obsession

- liberation from the paradox of hedonism

- no turned ankles on a wet winding path strewn with rocks

As flesh cannot be pleased what does that leave?

Nobility, true honor and duty.

The societies of man scream for the elevation of the individual but fall short in teaching the one and only true way that one may be elevated.

Power over others, accumulation of wealth or the attainment of celebrity is generally accepted by MICE culture as the badge of success.

The only true way to be truly elevated is to hold firm in treating each individual with respect and dignity regardless of social position.

Nobility is exercised when one embarks upon a course beneficial for all.

Honor is exercised when one travels a course beneficial for all.

Duty is exercised by staying the course.



"Love for me had taken on the form and the being of my little Josette.

We had met long before, in the rear of the millinery shop in which she worked at Tours.

She had smiled at me with singular persistence, and I caught her head in my hands, kissed her on the lips - and found out suddenly that I loved her.

I no longer recall the strange bliss we felt when, we first embraced.

It is true, there are moments when I still desire her as madly as the first time.

This is so especially when she is away.

When she is with me, there are moments when she repels me.

I dreamed of an unheard of idyll with a woman far from the one with whom I had hitherto spent my time, a woman whose features I did not see, but whose shadow I imagined beside my own as we walked along the road together.

Bracelets, necklaces, rings.

The sparkling of the jewels made me feel far away from them as do the stars.

A young girl looked at me with vague blue eyes.

What could I do against that kind of sapphire?

I watched her bosom rising and falling, and her motionless face, and the living book that was merged with her.

Her complexion was so brilliant that her mouth seemed almost dark.

Her beauty saddened me.

I looked at this unknown woman with sublime regret.

She caressed me by her presence.

A woman always caresses a man when she comes near him and they are alone.

In spite of all sorts of separation, there is always an awful beginning of happiness between them." - Henri Barbusse




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 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.

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.
