Wayist Phylosophy for Juniors

Learn about God

A genius invents a special aquarium. It has self controlled temperatures, and charges its own batteries, it can run for hundreds of billions of years without interference because it takes care of its own maintenance. It is more sophisticated than anyone has ever even dreamed of. Then his wife comes to look. She says, "You should put living things in there, that would be nice." The genius man says, "Naw. Im done with that project. I'm moving on to something else. You're a genius, why dont you make some things to live in there?"

The genius wife sets out to make some living beings to live in the aquarium. She likes the hobby and end up making two billion billion different species of living beings before she gets busy with dinner. She put 15 tonnes of sand into the aquarium. One one of the grains of sand, some of the microscopically small beings cling and they start a colony there. All the while those microscopic beings look out from their piece of sand at the other pieces they can see, and they wonder, "are we alone in here?" However, they cannot really know because their sensors can only see a small handful of sand around them, they have no idea how the aquarium actually works, in fact, they dont even know they are in an aquarium.

Can those beings, like germs, that live on the piece of sand that seems so big to them they think of it as a world--can they know the maker? Can they name him and her, and know what they think and how they think? I mean, they have not even discovered what lies being their clump of sand, how ca they know the person behind the creation. That being, that creator is so far removed from the germs growing on the sand as God the Almighty is to us on earth.

Wayists know that the Almighty is unknowable. We cannot speak of the Almighty, the Source of all. Therefore, we dont. We call the Almighty by names like the Immutable One, just to say that we cannot know It and we cannot speak of It.

What is a God?

In the English language (and most other languages) a god is a superhuman being with powers that we humans consider special. Some religions speak of many, many such gods.

Wayists believe in superhuman beings. We believe in spiritual beings who are not human or soul beings as we are.

Not many spiritual beings, or superhuman beings, are more worthy of our respect than another creature in creation. They are creatures too. Just different.

Waysits do single out two very special spiritual beings for a special place in our hearts. We respect and love those beings not because of any power they hold over us, not because of fear, but because of their love for us and what they do to help us. We love, respect and worship Lord Avalokitesvara (who used to be Jesus, or Iesous) as the Great Savior of humankind. The Lord taught us to look to the leader of spirit-heaven whom He calls Father, as our Father. He taught that since we are all going there, to spirit-heaven one day, we should pray, "Our Father, who are in heaven. Holy is your name..."

Therefore, Wayists have two gods, The Father of our future home in spirit-heaven, and the Lord working down here on our behalf.
