Evolution of souls
Wayist philosophy is rooted in the belief that humans are soul beings, and that our souls evolve and can become reborn as spiritual beings.
There are three important milestones in our evolution:
- Self realization, which is enlightenment in Manipura chakra.
- Spiritual re-birth, which is the start of life as a spiritually-minded person. This rebirth is triggered in Anahata chakra.
- Spiritual enlightenment, which is the final graduation from this school of life. This signals the end of samsara. After this, no more reincarnation. We continue our existence as spiritual beings in a different state, which is sanskrit is known as Sukhavati (Land of Pure Bliss).
We believe there are spiritual beings. We believe the human soul is a mind-held concept of the human identity, it changes constantly, is is mortal and relies on the brain. The human soul can discover the Spiritual Path and become a spiritual being.
We evolve as we learn about humility, simplicity and compassion in all different parts of our soul. Wayism is the spiritual Path that combines sacred Knowledge, Spiritual Awareness, a Benevolent mind and a healing lifestyle.
The earliest traces of Wayist philosophy are seen in ancient Egypt (Isis cult) and in the Upanishadic era, several thousand years ago. During the 500BCE era, we had Siddhartha Gautama (who became a Buddha after enlightenment) and LaoTzi from China explaining core Wayist principles.
Home shrines are memorobilia and symbols that help us focus ourattention and recall mystical experiences.
The items in the shrine are holy in the true sense of the word, which means "dedicated to the divine". Those items and the shrine itself has no other purpose, it is dedicated to serving us to recall the many aspects of the spiritual life to come and the changes we must make in ourselves to get there.
Perhpas like someone who put up a poster of a Carribbean beach, as a reminder to help him focus on his goal to save for that trip. He saves and looks at the poster dreamily, wishing he was there already. Because he is saving, he knows that ay will come and one day he will walk on that beach.
There are many heavens and hells in Buddhism. The different schools of Buddhist thought are not in full agreement over the numbers and the names and styles of all the heavens and hells, but they all agree that there are many. The lower number among those is 30 heavens and hells.
With regards to miracles, Buddhism does not shy from these. Gautama Buddha performed more miracles that Teacher Jesus, and grander ones at that.
Some westerners would like to create a neo-buddhism that is only a philosophy with no deities, heavens, hells and miracles, and especially with no human soul and no future after human death. This is preposterous, they should rather create something from scratch but to come from the outside, appropriate someone else's deities and then impose on them all kinds of foreign western ideas that Buddhists on the ground will find offensive, is plain wrong.
Dating back to at least 500 BCE, Wayism is an ancient, personal, life philosophy. In its essence, it is the golden thread of core teaching that has inspired many spiritualities and religions.
It is that pure thread of Wayism, simply referred to as, “The Way”, that remains unadorned with the dogmas and enormous wealth that makes possible the business of religions.
“The Truth transcends religion”
- Wayist belief
There is not a spirituality out there that cannot be extrapolated upon by Wayist principles.
