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.
Wayism is the level of understanding and wisdom to which the the more mature souls awaken. Almost every mystic, sage and saint of bygone ages spoke this language, held the same convictions. Therefore, we see Rumi, Kabir, Therese of Avilla, Meerabai, Ib'n Arabi, Lalleshwari, Hafiz, John of the Cross and others throughout the ages all speak the same wisdom language and know the same essence of spirituality notwithstanding they hail from different eras and widely differing religious backgrounds.
“Wisdom Transcends Religion”

There is not a spirituality out there that cannot be extrapolated upon by Wayist principles.Read More
According to the Buddha, there are millions of buddhas and many heavens and hells to where one's next birth can direct. The human plane of existence is one of the many possibilities, the other planes are of several levels of demonic and animalistic beings. 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 is 30 heavens and hells.
With regards to miracles, Buddhism does not shy from these. Gautama Siddharta 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. They want something that is not a religion. Buddhism is a very importantant religion that serves at least two billion worshippers who pray to the Buddha and get intercessory prayers and blessings from monks on a daily basis. It is preposterous to tell stories that Buddhism is not a religion, and has no deities.Read More
Shrine of a Buddhist devotee, featuring Gautama Buddha and the worshipper's teacher, probably the present Dalai Lama.
Home shrines are memorobilia and symbols that help us focus our attention 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.
Someone may 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 the day will come and one day he will walk on that beach. Similarly, people bring a bit of heaven into their homes when they set up their shrines.Read More
Wayist philosophy is rooted in the belief that humans are soul beings, and that our souls evolve and can become reborn as spiritual beings.
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.

If it is philosophy that you seek: devotion to the Philosophical Path exclusively is totally valid.
From ancient times the path of union with the Divine through studying Wisdom was called Gnani Yoga, also Jnana Yoga.
Wayist philosophy is clear, simple and inclusive of all beings. Everyone can become enlightened on this Path, it is only a matter of personal choice. The ontology (the questions of: why we are here, where we come from, where we go, what is the purpose of life) of Wayism is easy to understand with none of the circular reasoning that typically makes religious talk so frustrating.Check out the Youtube pages of Wayist teachers or one of the books they provide. For example, the little book BUTTERFLY PATH explains the entire philosophy in easy to understand language. Read More
Photo of Confucius, Gautama Buddha and LaoTzi tasting vinegar. Each has his own interpretation. In this instance, Wayism is in accord with what LaoTzi had to say -- whatever life brings, it is just perfect because we will extract wisdom from all situations.
If direct experience of the divine is your path: Devotion to the Mystical Path exclusively is totally valid.
From ancient times the path of union with the Divine through Devotion or Mystical union was called Bhakti Yoga, the Yoga of Love for the senior spiritual beings who take care of all fledgling spirits.
The devotional path of worship and association with spiritual beings is deeply rewarding. Most ancient Scriptures that compare Paths tell us that this is the higher path -- the path of mystical experiences, love, poetry and deep relationships with spiritual beings.Read More
To be in communion with, and under guidance of one's angels, the devata, buddhas and bodhisattva on the Path is something so tender, so special, mystics find no words to describe.
If living a good life only is what appeals to your sense of path: Devotion to the Wayist Lifestyle exclusively is totally valid.
From ancient times, the path of union with the Divine through living the dedicated Lifestyle was called Karma Yoga. That is, right attitude and right actions.
Wayist Lifestyle is focused on Owning Your Own Mind, on Breaking With Culturally Conditioned Thinking and on living a true, full and authentic life of loving-kindness. The spirituality of happiness is unique and central to Wayism, as is constant awareness of the presence of the Divine energies in all things and beings.Read More
Authentic lifestyle rooted in passion, compassion, discovery, happiness and a perpetual sense of beauty in all.
The Way of the gods is the assured path to rapid enlightenment
In earliest times Wayism was referred to as either mahamarga (the great Way) or devatamarga (way of the gods), and in China as the path of the Way (Daoism). Jesus' followers were known as "people of the Way" (Christianity is a Jewish reformation movement that came much later). When we combine the philosophy, lifestyle and mystical devotional aspects of the Path, then it is called the Way of the Gods because it is the most sure path to enlightenment, which is graduation from soul school earth, which is when we become eternal members of the divine Lotus Family.
