Lumenosophy is a new kind of philosophy which is rooted in light. It follows the supposition that; the wisdom of light is infinite, the sustenance of light is boundless, and the seeing of light extraordinary.
We might wonder why light was not declared to be the most universal underlying principle earlier. The ancient Greeks had the capacity to recognise this, yet none of them declared: To fos ine pan Demiurgos. Namely that; Light is the universal Demiurge.
The father of philosophy, Thales, envisaged water as the essence of everything.
Heraclitus envisaged the essence of everything in fire
Democritus (and modern scientists) insisted on the primacy of atoms
Pythagoras and Plato saw ultimate roots in Numbers
Consequently; Western philosophy and human knowledge at large, have, by adhering to the atomic principle, and the narrow materialist scientific paradigm, become lost in endless proliferations. This has resulted in a powerlessness to see the whole picture. Our philosophical outlook has become too dim, too obscure, too myopic. Consequently our current worldview is restricted to a singular materialist perspective.
Now with the ascent of Lumenosophy, the answer is so simple.
Light is the universal source, and the universal wisdom.
Thus: The philosophy of Light; ‘Lumenosophy‘ gives us the comfort and freedom to embrace the cosmic reaches of the universe, and also chisel out the greater meaning and dimensions of our human life on Earth.
How difficult it would be today to write a holy book. To proclaim a revised version of God and spread the good news – “This is the one”!
But who would want a new version of God anyway? Those already committed to established religions are reluctant change their views (Even if they are secretly sceptical) for fear of disapproval, ridicule, or worse, and of course there are those who actually believe that what they believe is the truth!
Everything religious it seems is already accounted for. All nicely packaged and commercialised. The world is saturated with religious belief; even the spaces left between mainstream religions are filled by minority cults, leaving very little scope for a new vision of God to squeeze in, no matter how plausible.
We might also ask: Why would anybody ‘want’ a new version of God? Is it not the case that we are doing just fine with our present examples? In view of violent religious extremism, and the rather disturbing influence of religion in politics and world affairs, it would appear that we are not doing fine at all! But still people continue in the unshakable belief that ‘theirs’ is the only true religion, and their particular doctrines are unreservedly sacrosanct.
So for the foreseeable future at least; it would appear that humanity is well and truly stuck in the box of established religion. While every other aspect of human evolution moves on, traditional religion remains a fixed point from which there is no deviation, no escape, and no possibility of progress.
If we really are ready to think outside the proverbial box, and there is a genuine desire to live in peaceful coexistence? Then our respective religious boxes should be first on our agenda for re – appraisal. But here lies the dilemma – Many believers do not even recognise they are in a box. They are so totally convinced by their religious belief, that nothing can sway them. Even if their belief is utterly nonsensical and destructive, they still hold onto that belief as their guiding principle no matter how absurd it may be. And let us be aware; that all religion is ‘taught’ it is not part of our fundamental nature, we are not born as religious beings.
Humanity has been reading and reinterpreting the same dogma for thousands of years, which in reality has lead us nowhere. Isn’t it about time we had some new reading material?
The philosophy of Light
Since time immemorial human beings have been struck by the extraordinary nature of light, its luminosity and it’s all pervading nature. Eventually light was linked with that being which they later described as the highest. They vested all the potency of light in God, and in time they forgot that God is merely an inspiration in the image of Light. Consequently; the true nature of Light as the original source has become obscured by thousands of years of erroneous belief.
Thus; the light referred to by all the great teachers and prophets is the same light that continuously illuminates the universe and our lives. There are no separate versions of light for different religions. There is only light.
From a scientific perspective – It is common belief that atoms are the building blocks of everything. But what are atoms made of?
If we continue along this route of enquiry through the sub atomic realm we eventually arrive at a field of pure energy – ‘Particle wave Duality’- Light.
Thus; religion, and science, are different paths searching for the same answer; when in truth the answer to all our questions is right before our eyes and always has been. It is Light.
In fact if we reflect on this we will recognise that all: Life – Matter – and Formless phenomena are rooted in Light. Light explains everything.
Light is often used in a metaphorical context. We are simply stating that light is not metaphorical. Light is actual. That, which we seek, is not an elusive mystery, nor is it to be found in some abstract scientific hypothesis. It is real – it is here – it is with us right now – it is Light!
We don’t need to go to a church or temple. There are no rituals or prayers that guarantee a place in heaven. Nor do we need to ‘do’ anything, or ‘become’ anything; we don’t even have to wait until we die to see heaven! Heaven is right here, right where we are at this very moment.
The universe has conspired to create life. How does it create? Through the mysterious alchemy of Light intertwined with love. Love is not accidental; but is an essential aspect of universal creativity. The union of Light and Love is the source of all existence. Beyond physical matter, beyond scientific theories, beyond religious theology, beyond time, beyond all beyonds – Love and Light endure; continually evolving into ever more refined and beautiful manifestations of life and cosmos.
This is the reality of heaven – This beautiful Earth, this amazing Universe, and we are blessed with eyes to see it all, and a mind to comprehend it.
We should be grateful for every moment, for every moment is sacred. To live our lives in harmony with Love and Light is the highest form of virtue and the ultimate spiritual experience. Why? Simply because by doing so we engage directly with the creative essence of the universe. We also recognise that we are coming home to the actual source that we abandoned so long ago, in favour of mythical sky gods.
Light is indestructible and eternal; its message cannot be misinterpreted or corrupted. Light is the source of all life, and the antithesis of darkness and evil, it has always been so.
The call of spiritual light within us is unrelenting. This call will never abandon us. For Light is more potent than any doctrine whether religious or secular.
Did I just read what I think I did?
I don’t believe it!
I don’t want to believe it!
I won’t believe it!
I can’t believe it!
It’s just not possible!
It cannot be!
This is Heresy!
Too simple to be true!
Not valid- No references or empirical evidence!
Sorry, I think you’ll find it was a big bang!
No it wasn’t, it was the voice of God!
You’re all wrong, the answer is 42!
In the meantime:
Light and Love await our response to their calling!
