Dreams are a review of everything experienced.

If you overlook a natural pattern consciously then your dreams
will reveal that natural pattern if it is important for your survival.

Crazy Diamond

Shine on you Crazy Diamond
(Steel Breeze Dream)

Remember when you were young,
you shone like the Sun.

Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

Now there's a look in your Eyes,
like Black Holes in the Sky.

Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

You were caught in the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
blown on the Steel Breeze.

Come on you target for faraway laughter,
come on you Stranger,
you Legend, you Martyr, and Shine!

You reached for the Secret too soon, you cried for the Moon.

Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

Treatened by Shadows at Night, and exposed in the Light.

Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
rode on the Steel Breeze.

Come on you Raver, you seer of Visions, come on you Painter,
you Piper, you Prisoner, and Shine!

Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far.

Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

Pile on many more layers and i'll be joining you there.

Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

And we'll bask in the shadow of yesterday's triumph,

and Sail on the Steel Breeze.

Come on you boy child, you winner and loser,

Come on you miner for Truth and Delusion, and Shine!

dream dreaming us

"Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things
which escape those who dream only by night." - Edgar Allan Poe

"The million years of dreaming is not the imposition of our dreams of domination onto reality, but our participation in the universe's dreaming of itself. In love, we identify with another, see and feel the world from another perspective, and so realize our essential unity. So also in a dream. By falling back in love with the world, we enter the cosmic dream, and in releasing our discrete and separate selves, grow into who we are." - Charles Eisenstein

"When a man's sleep is better than his waking he is better off dead."
- Saadi of Shiraz

Dream is defined as:

a wild fancy or hope

a daydream; a reverie

to conceive of; to imagine

to pass time idly or in reverie

to regard some thing as feasible or practical

a condition or achievement that is longed for; an aspiration

a series of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations occurring involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep

lucid dreaming

Creative problem-solving that entails dreams typically begins with a period of unsuccessful effort. That's followed by a decision to set the problem aside, then a lull in which the thinker does no conscious work to find a solution. Finally, the fresh solution enters consciousness in a dream and is recognized upon awakening.

The process works especially well for musicians, scientists and artists whose challenges are analogous to the neocortex's. That is, to make new connections among bits and pieces of familiar elements.

There is no universally agreed biological definition of dreaming.

General observation shows that dreams are strongly associated with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, during which an electroencephalogram shows brain activity to be most like wakefulness.

Lucid dreaming is being in a dream state of consciousness, rapid eye movement sleep, and knowing that you are indeed in a dream state of consciousness. The dreamer awakens within his dream to the reality that what he is experiencing is occurring not in physical reality, but in a dream.

This is conscious awareness of the subconscious cataloging process that occurs during sleep.

Lucidity is often triggered by an occurrence in a dream that subconscious rejects as not belonging within the subconscious' conceptual schemata of reality. Two common occurrences in a dream that the subconscious seems to reject are flying and meeting the deceased. Both seem to propel the level of consciousness from rapid eye movement sleep toward consciousness.

Lucid dreams are dreams of ascension of consciousness where one experiences happiness and contentment whereas nightmares, dreams of a descending consciousness, are laced with fear and terror.

inevitable dreams

"In our dreams - I know it! - we do make the journeys we seem to make: we do see the things we seem to see; the people, the homes, the cats, the dogs, the birds, the whales, are real, not chimeras; they are living spirits, not shadows; and they are immortal and indestructible. They go whither they will; they visit all resorts, all points of interest, even the twinkling suns that wander in the void of space. That is where those strange mountains are which slide from under our feet while we walk, and where those vast caverns are whose bewildering avenues close behind us and in front when we are lost, and shut us in. We know this because there are no such things here, and they must be there, because there is no other place." - Mark Twain

"In the past our politicians offered us dreams of a better world. Now they promise to protect us from nightmares." - BBC television special

You are asleep and dreaming!

awaken sleeper


Have you ever been conscious that you were dreaming while asleep?

This is known as 'lucid dreaming'.

It is possible to experience an ultra awake state called 'lucid living'.

When living lucidly you are conscious that what you thought was consciousness was, comparatively, a hazy dream.

This awakened state is sometimes called 'enlightenment' or 'gnosis'.

It is an experience of the undeniable oneness of all that lives and an understanding of the all embracing love that God has shown for all life simply through granting inanimate matter a living existence. It is an experience in which the human soul is granted God's grace - a rebirth into reality in which the unique beauty of reality is seen as it truly is, in which the individual stands in awe of God's power, a reality in which one is overcome by God's mercy, a reality permeated with God's spirit.

Throughout history men and women from all cultures and all religious faiths have awoken and experienced lucid living.

"There are many whose eyes are awake, but whose hearts are asleep. If your heart is already awakened, sleep peacefully, sleep in the arms of God's compassion." - Rumi

Those who claim to know nothing about ultimate reality are called agnostic (literally, "not knowing"), the person who does claim to know such things is called gnostic ("knowing"). In Gnosticism the broad term 'gnostic' is defined as 'knower' which refers to all individuals who have insight into ultimate reality and although they express their insights in the various metaphors of their diverse cultures, they all talk about the experience of awakening, of gnosis, of perceiving reality as reality truly is.

eternal pattern

Gnosis is not primarily rational knowledge. The Greek language distinguishes between scientific or reflective knowledge ("He knows mathematics") and knowing through observation or experience ("He knows me"), which is gnosis. As the gnostic use the term, we could translate it as "insight," for gnosis involves an intuitive process of knowing oneself. To know oneself is to know human nature and understand humanity.

Critically thinking individuals often inspired the formation of small groups dedicated to awakening humanity to the beauty of living in accord with God's Natural Law - to gnosis.

Ironically, the more successful the gnostics become the more they attract those who see their power of living in accord with God's Natural Law as unprofitabe threat to the established social cultural order. What began as a loose alliance of critically thinking Christian gnostic individuals degenerated as gnostics were forced to conform to the new religion, imperial Roman Catholicism, an organized institutionalized religion mirroring the existing established social cultural order which corrupted and transformed the original message for the purpose of social control.

This corrupted form of gnosticism is 'literalism'.
(also known as imperial Christianity)

transcendental reality

Gnosticism is sometimes called 'the perennial philosophy' because it has been found in all cultures and at all times throughout mankind's history. It is not that gnostics all say exactly the same thing. It is rather that their teachings are like fingers pointing from different perspectives to the same experience of gnosis.

Unfortunately, most people focus on the finger and entirely miss the point.

This is literalism.

Religions mired in literalism are social clubs for people who want to walk with God but end up worshiping the One True Finger. They have no understanding of the experience of awakening towards which the finger points. Once a religion becomes institutionalized it fails to function as anything other than a social control mechanism.

Once sacred writings are interpreted and literally set in social cultural stone then the critical thinking, a necessary and required step in the attainment of awakening into gnosis, is abandoned for rote interpretation by "religious" experts - rabbis, priests, teachers, prophets and apostles, ad infinitum - also known as intercessors to God.

Throughout history gnostics have ceaselessly exposed literalism in religion as a pernicious source of ignorance, superstition, division and suffering. In so doing gnostics have been branded as heretics and persecuted by ruling classes interested in maintaining the status quo.

This gnostics message has never been more relevant than it is today in our tumultuous times.

Taking religious myths literally is the root cause of religiously sanctified violence.

The time has come to say enough of this madness and consign corrupt religion mired in literalism to the garbage heap of history.

The experience of gnosis, of awakening, has answered the profound human yearning to understand the mysteries of life, of reality, of the humansoul and the attributes of God.

The experience of gnosis has inspired people of all cultures to create beautiful works of art, gloriously soaring cathedrals and temples, transcendental music and songs, sublime poetry and literature that speaks to the heart of man.

The experience of gnosis has the power to rescue the teachings of gnostics from under the accumulated debris of religious dogma.

We can jettison corrupt religious literalism while we retain and revivify the perennial teachings of gnosis.

"This reality is a passing dream which the sleeper is convinced is real, until unexpectedly the dawn of death frees him from this fantasy." - Rumi (Sufi Gnostic)

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 created 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 Life - 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 Life 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 central banking system, mass 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 mass 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.
