What We Are and Are Not

We are:

  • A "legal," religious organization, because society does not recognize spiritual organizations, and that's the closest corporate structure.
  • Dedicated to researching the spirit and states of ethics and consciousness.
  • Non-discriminatory. You are welcome, regardless of race, color, creed, gender, Nationality, sexual preference, financial status, economic status or planet of origin--they do not matter. Everyone is welcome to join with others on this path.
  • A catalyst for self-development.

We are not:

  • We are not an organization to say what is right or wrong. Our focus is ethics and the spirit, not issues of socially-defined morality (yes, there IS a difference).
  • We are not political, nor are involved in any political campaign or agenda.
  • Not a “social network.” Though we share our thoughts and experiences, the ultimate goal is individuation—developing personal consciousness, not socializing.
  • A “self-help” group. We see every problem as an opportunity for growth, so our focus is self-improvement.
  • We are not a “religion”, though we are “religious.” If anything, we “preach” the common path of ALL theology.

Do we restrict access to information?

  • It would be nice to have unlimited access to all the information on the planet, but society isn't ready for that. We respect all laws and copyrights, so if we do not have permission to use it, by law or request, we will not be posted to the public.
  • Other information has restricted access, until basic requirements are met; this is dependent upon the author of the information, not the Institute nor the Monastery. There is wisdom in requiring prerequisites, as those building blocks are needed to build a solid foundation for larger developments. We have found that to have access to the goal, without going through the process of obtaining it, is a disservice to someone walking the spiritual path.
  • The Institute will provide all public domain religious, philosophical, scientific and ethical materials in can, without any restrictions to access.
