The Significance of the Axial Age

From about 900 to 200 BC sages worked to find a cure for the spiritual corruption of humanity.

The sages found the Way of Compassion through the abandonment of selfish desire actually worked - freed of material desire we find sacred peace.

The great insights of the sages of the "Axial Age" began the pivot of global human cultural awakening from mythological consciousness into rational consciousness for humanity on a whole.

Integral consciousness showed these sages that for mankind to enjoy its sojourn upon this Earth it must grow compassionate and temper brute selfish rationality with social kindness as people are social animals that prosper only in tight knit groups.

The Golden Rule, an elegant concept reflecting actual reality advanced by sages of the Axial Age, asks humanity to abide by the ancient call of empathy - abandon selfishness and embrace compassion.

Compassion is of no value as an abstract concept.

Compassion only has value when it is put into practice

Be kind to others, take a good look around. Although we are different, similarities abound. Try not to judge, pick on, or tease. Treat each other fairly, with kindness and ease.

Compassion must be lived to have any value!

Literalist movements are concerned with promoting doctrine out of context and work endlessly to sheild religious dogma from the light of reason.

Once a religion is institutionalized it sheilds followers from the concentration on compassion forwarded by the Axial Age sages.

Confucius, Lao Tze, Siddhartha Gautama, Moshe Rabbenu, Jesus the Tekton and Muhammad ibn 'Abdullāh, operating in integral consciousness, wanted to craft a humanity that understood integral consciousness.

In the Garden of Nirvana, where integral consciousness reigns, emotional suffering ceases.

True prophets are interested only in compassionate behavior that dethrones the ego.

Cultural traditions is always secondary with true prophets.

True prophets understand that respect for life brings you into the presence of the Creator and Sustainer, Brahma or the Way.

Ekstasis, or ecstasy, in Greek means "stepping outside."

Stepping into integral consciousness is "stepping outside" of traditional rational thought patterns.

Integral consciousness is not an exotic state of consciousness.

Anybody can acheive integral consciousness.

To do so simply requires the sacrifice of preconcieved notion.

Integral consciousness means understanding the various modes of consciousness and stepping outside the prison of emotions that support egotism, selfishness, greed and envy.

"Humanity is living on an Earth united now - whether we like it or not - electronically; economically and politically.

The only way we can end hostility is to learn to think that other nations are as important as ourselves and to practice the Golden Rule - do not do unto others as you would not have done unto you - which was first proposed by Confucius about 500 years before Jesus.

It's the only safe way." - Karen Armstrong

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 mass 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.
