Creation itself is Holy

All Life is Sacred


Siddhartha Gautama

gave his dharma to mankind,

so humans can awaken into enlightenment.

To awaken one must only pay attention to daily life,

the middle way. Continually feeling gratitude and awe

in one's present existence brings enlightenment.

buddhist quotes

A ZEN LIFE - D.T. Suzuki

Three Marks of Existence

(three basic truths about the condition of life)

Anicca (Sanskrit anitya) defined as "impermanence".

Dukkha (Sanskrit duhkha) defined as "suffering".

Anatta (Sanskrit anatman) defined as "egolessness".

"It is good to have an end to journey toward;

but it is the journey that matters, in the end."

Ursula K. LeGuin

"If you suffer, it is not because things are impermanent.

It is because you believe things are permanent.

Remaining aware of impermanence you become compassionate and wise.

Impermanence is an instrument for True Liberation.

Enjoy living, just remain aware of its nature of impermanence.

When you are thirsty, there is nothing wrong in enjoying a glass of water.

In fact, to truly enjoy it, you have to dwell in the present moment.

When a flower dies, we don't cry. We know it is impermanent.

If we practice awareness of impermanence, we suffer less and enjoy more.

If we know things are impermanent, we cherish them in the present moment.

We know that our loved ones are of an impermanent nature, so we do our best to make them happy now." - Thich Nhat Hanh

The first mark of existence, impermanence, points to the simple reality that everything - every thought, emotion, relationship, or situation - everything that has a beginning, also has an ending.

Nothing with a beginning is permanent.

In the search for happiness we pay little attention to impermanence.

Examining motivation we hold on to what we adore and eject what we abhor.

Like vs. dislike shifts how brain 'sees'

If our situation is acceptable we typically feel secure and comfortable.

We feel betrayed by relations or with our understanding of Яeality itself when or if things change in a manner we didn't want or expect.

We feel situational circumstances are preventing us from being happy.

Every moment brings arising thoughts and feelings and then they fall away.

The simple truth is that the only certainty following gain is eventual loss.

The happiness or joy we expect to experience in life cannot depend on holding onto material gain if it is to be a true sustainable everlasting gain.

True sustainable gain we need to find within.

Awakening the Heart: The Practice of Inner Transformation

"To undertake the journey to God the heart must

be burned up within the fire of Divine Compassion

Juan de Yepes Alvarez

Everyday emotional pain, open heart wounds, is where compassion is born.

In Sanskrit awakened compassion is called Boddhicitta or Awakened Heart.

We age, we become sick, we die. Pain is unavoidable.

When we refuse to embrace emotional pain, we unwittingly screen out a large range of emotional experiences that occur in the process of living.

A person who is truly alive will feel sorrow unlike zombies.

This is so because of the amount of unnecessary suffering produced by the imperfection of social arrangements and because of the reality of existence.

Sentient beings are aware of the gap between aspirations and actualities.

In this light we understand emotional pain is inevitable.

We tend to believe that the opposite of feeling good is not feeling bad.

To keep ourselves from not feeling bad we condition ourselves to not feel.

All we have to do is allow the natural empathic response to fill the horizon.

"When we take a step on the green earth,
we are aware that we are made of air, sunshine,
minerals, and water, that we are a child of earth and sky,
linked to all other beings." - Thich Nhat Hanh

There is a moment to moment recognition of egoic needs.

We perpetuate emotional suffering by thinking we need to be a fixed entity.

Emotional suffering will persist as long as we avoid at all costs the fear at the heart of it - we may not be saved or protected and may suffer emotionally.

Rather than experiencing fear we attempt to dismantle fear by con-vincing ourselves fear is unjustified - we will be protected and saved from suffering.

People are terrified that they may be unable to tolerate a reality that they have so very little control over - the culture, nature and the course of events.


two stages of egolessness

"The one to whom the Mystery is unveiled exists no longer but is annihilated in compassion." - Rumi

"No man shall attain the shores of the ocean of true understanding except he be detached from all that is in heaven and on earth. The flame of utter detachment consumest veils of idle learning, that are current amongst men, canst thou behold the resplendent sunrise of true knowledge." - Bahá'u'lláh

First stage of egolessness is characterized by recognition of "the Observer" - a recognition of emotional detachment from passing thoughts and feelings.

Second stage of egolessness the notion of "Observer" is dropped as there is no longer to detach from the face of the awesome power of what is.

Here is where dissociation from embedded ego patterns occurs and the experience of being "burned up" by the fire emerges - the moment of redemption and renewal.

We experience life "vividly" by direct immersion in the process of living.

We cultivate a practice of living based on direct and immediate feeling.

We can tolerate a tremendous range of emotion, and ultimately we must.

This understanding marks the transition from using spiritual knowledge as a remedy emotional suffering to develope the courage to experience life as it is.

"The experience of psychospiritual death and rebirth reallows the conscious reconnection with positive memories of living life which reduces irrational drives and ambitions.

Psychospiritual death and rebirth causes a shift of focus from the past and future to this present moment thus enhancing élan vital and joi de vivre.

Rebirth grants the ability to enjoy and draw satisfaction from simple circumstances of life, such as everyday activities, food, love-making, nature, music while supporting the emergence of authentic spirituality of a universal and mystical nature based on the deeply personal experience of living life fully in the present." - Stanislav Grof

"There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness. When you learn to live for others, they will live for you." - Paramahansa Yogananda

light of compassion and understanding

"The manner the Eternal Soul goes forth from itself is comparable to what

happens when a fire is burning and flaming as it becomes a forceful blaze.

The flame shoots very high in this divine union."

Teresa Sanchez de Cepeda y Ahumada

"When we think about what real silence is, we have to look at it from two angles; the first is to see silence through human eyes and the second is to see silence through the all-seeing-eye of Integral Consciousness.

The opportunity to experience real silence occurs when we have been driven into a corner and simply cannot move an inch.

Unlike a situation of complete despair, this silence is quite different from despair, because in this state, the conscious flame of human desire still burns.

Real silence is the state of human existence that passes through this despair.

How can we experience this silence?

Without everyday life it is impossible to experience silence." - Katagiri Roshi

When we imagine what spiritual awakening must be like we tend to imagine a dramatically relieving experience.

More often what usually occurs is a humbling, a wearing down of the ego.

When we acknowledge that we are in emotional pain and simultaneously acknowledge that we are whole, we become available to others and are able to meet them compassionately.

Great emotional pain creates great tenderness leaving the ego peeled raw reminding us to let go of a need to control things which are beyond control.

Great emotional pain is not punishment for being bad.

This is a potent opportunity to have hearts open up and burn with fire.

Finding that we can tolerate more emotional pain than we imagined possible we find a previously unrealized depth and breadth of being.

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 Æ∞n 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 at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate 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 press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c✡rp✡rate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y 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 coercion 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.
