Beloved Lord,

Almighty Creator!

Through the Rays of the Sun,

Through the Waves of the Air,

Through the all-pervading Life,

Purify and revivify me, and, I pray,

Heal my body, heart and soul.

Parable of the People with a Higher Aim

Imam Al-Ghazali relates a tradition from the life of Isa, ibn Maryam.

Isa one day saw some people sitting miserably on a wall, by the roadside.

Isa asked: "What is your affiliction?"

They said: "We have become like this through our fear of Hell."

Isa went on his way, and saw a number of people milling about.

Isa said: "What is your affiliction?"

They said: "Desire for Paradise has made us like this."

Isa went on his way, until he came to a third group of people.

They looked worse for wear but their faces shone with joy.

Isa asked them: "What has made you like this?"

They answered: " The Spirit of Truth has made us oblivious of lesser goals."

Isa stated: "These individuals attain. They dwell in the Presence of God."

Al-Ghazali pointed out the problem of conditioning 800 years before Pavlov.

Even now many observers are unaware of the power of indoctrination.

Indoctrination, in totalitarian societies, provides desirable conforming belief.

Most of the time indoctrination and conditioning is not suspected.

This is what makes almost anyone vulnerable to indoctrination.

At the time of Al-Ghazali's writing informed opinion was split between whether any type of indoctrination was desirable or inescapable.

Al-Ghazali noted belief systems in action entail emotional obsession.

Al-Ghazali stated that indoctrination and conditioning is unnecessary.

It is essential to be able to identify indoctrination and conditioning tactics.

Al-Ghazali saw distinction between Øpinion and Ḵnowledge as easily lost.

When Øpinion and Ḵnowledge becomes confused Al-Ghazali taught those who know the difference make indoctrination and conditioning visible.

Al-Ghazali arrived at his understanding of true knowledge through his upbringing in Sufism and through direct perception of the truth.

Al-Ghazali stressed the role of the inculcation of belief.

He invited his readers to observe the mechanism involved.

Al-Ghazali insisted upon pointing out that those who are learned may be, and often are, ignorant as well, and can be bigoted, obsessed with delusion.

Al-Ghazali affirms true knowledge, a higher form of human understanding.

His works were so highly acclaimed by his contemporaries that al-Ghazali was awarded the honorific title "Proof of Islam".

Al-Ghazali contributed significantly to the development of a systematic view of Sufism and to its integration and acceptance in mainstream Islam.

As a scholar of Orthodox Islam, he belonged to the Shafi'i school of Islamic jurisprudence and to the Asharite school of theology.

Al-Ghazali wrote over 70 books on science, Islamic philosophy and Sufism.

Al-Ghazali is recognized as Mujaddid (Renewer of the Faith).

Al-Ghazali has been referred to by some historians as the single most influential Muslim after the Muhammad ibn 'Abdullāh.

Al-Ghazali so successfully criticized Hellenistic Neoplatonism infecting Islam that Orthodox Islamic scholars became tolerant of Sufism.

Most of Al-Ghazali books were burned in an attempt to destroy the knowledge he imparted on indoctrination and conditioning.

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 en❡a❡e Яeality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from Яeality 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. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religi☯us practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed the Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery re☦igion based on reaso🐍 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 and Sustainer 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 mass 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.
