Cosmotheism is a religion which positively asserts that there is a internal purpose in life and in cosmos, and there is an essential unity, or consciousness that binds all living beings and all of the inorganic cosmos, as one. What is our true human identity is we are the cosmos made self-aware and self-conscious by evolution. Our true human purpose is to know and to complete ourselves as conscious Individuals and also as a self-aware species and thereby to co-evolve with the cosmos towards total and universal awareness, and towards the ever higher perfection of consciousness and being.    


Cosmotheism - On Living Things - The Big Picture

Chapter I - Verses (1 - 9 )
 - (1:1) -  (The Path We Call the One Purpose)
From the Path we know these things:
- (1:2) - (Defining the Totality of the Whole)    
 There is but one Reality, and that Reality is the
 Whole. It is the  Creator, the Self-created. (I:6) 
- (1:3) -       (The Universal Equation) 
The material manifestation of the Creator is the tangible Universe,
with all its non-living and living things, including man. (II:2)
- (1:4) - (The Big Picture of Cosmic Evolution Unfolding Towards Destiny)
The spiritual manifestation of the Creator 
is the Urge toward the One Purpose.
The Urge lies at the root of all things and is manifested in the relations between all things. (II:3)
- (1:5) - (The Mind of God Evolving, Becoming and Blossoming)    

The One Purpose is the Self-Realization of the Creator:
the Self-completion of the Self-created. (II:5)
- (1:6) - (The Purpose and Meaning of Sentient Life is to Serve The Creator) 
 Man's purpose is the Creator's Purpose. He is, in part both of substance 
and the means of the Creator, and he is nothing else; this is his entire being and purpose (III:1)
- (1:7) - (Man is not the end, but a means)   
 Man serves the Creator's Purpose in two ways: 
(1) unconsciously and (2) consciously. In both ways he follows the

Path of Life, which is the Creator's evolutionary Path
toward Self-Completion. He passes from step to step on the Path, from sub-man to man to higher man, and beyond. (III:2, IV:1,2)
- (1:8) - (UnSelf-Directed Evolution, Natural Selection)
 In the unconscious way the passing is blind, an its driving force
 is instinct, which is a manifestation of the immanent consciousness 
of the Whole in man. (III:2)
- (1:9) - (Purposefully directed Creative Self-Directed Evolution)
And in the conscious way the passing is guided by man's awareness of his true identity
and his true mission; this awareness illuminates the
Path before him and allows him to choose his steps. (V:3)
--------------------------- Chapter II (2) v. 1-4
- (2:1) - (The Truth of the Cosmic Tree of Life)
These things which we know lead us to an understanding of the significance and value of all living things: of the variety of animals, of the races of man, and the varying qualities of individual men.
- (2:2) - (The Metamorphosis is differentiation) 
We understand that the living things developed from 
non-living things through the all-permeating Urge toward self-realization:
first there was the Urge,
and through it came the ordering of non-living and the highest ordered became living. And the Urge has ordered the living things, and through this ordering
have come higher levels of consciousness.
And the Urge continues its ordering.
- (2:3) - (There is No Equality in the Universe)
 All matter, living and non-living, is ordered
in a hierarchy, animate above inanimate, conscious above
unconscious. The Urge is toward higher consciousness; 
the purpose of all material things is the implementation of the Urge,
the service of the One Purpose; and the value of each thing is its potential for serving the One purpose.
- (2:4) - (Understanding the God Equation)
Now, our understanding of this truth must serve as a guide to us in evaluating all things living and on-living, animate and inanimate, human and non-human.
Chpt. III v. 1 - 6
 - (3:1) - (Man's Delusions of Equality, Spirituality and Value)
 Some have taught falsely that all things, being of the Whole,
are sacred and inviolable. They mean: sacred in the eyes of men;
inviolable by men. They may be of good will, in wanting to restrain men from

thoughtless destruction, in wanting to protect beautiful
and noble living things, in wanting to preserve the harmony
of the Universe. But their understanding is limited,
and their teaching is contrary to the purpose of the Creator's Purpose.
- (3:2) - (Cosmic Consciousness, Awareness and Participation)
For man is not a spectator, but a participant; not a
 being apart, but a part of all Being. And every living part of
 the Whole lives only by violating other parts;  every animal must 
take unto itself other living things and must cast away its wastes.
- (3:3) -  (Understanding Cosmic Evolution towards fulfillment) 

It is only the Whole which is inviolable, only the
 One Purpose which is sacred. The parts of the Whole come
and go; they are subject to the eternal process of Creation, 
which annihilates some, preserves some, and transforms some.
-(3:4) - (Higher Consciousness in Man)

And higher man, Divinely Conscious man, is an agent
as well as a subject of this process. When a member of the
Community of Divine Consciousness acts in accord with the
One Purpose, the Creator
is acting. 
- (3:5) - (The Pseudoscience of Post Modernism and Egalitarianism)
 Others have taught falsely that man himself
is sacred and inviolable; that all who are "men" are immune 
to the process of creation, that men stand aside from it and above it,
and that all men are of kind.
- (3:6) - (Mans Value is his Actions for the One Purpose)

But the value of man lies not in his conformation, nor
 in his ability to speak or to reason, except as these things aid him
in serving the One Purpose. If he does not serve the Purpose,  his life 
is without value,
his formation and reason meaningless. If he contravenes
the One Purpose, then he is an abomination,
his life a defilement of all life.
-Chapter IV- v. 1 - 11

(4:1) - (Hierarchy of Man)
 Thus are men ranked in value: (1) first in value
 are those with Divine Consciousness; they are those
 who walk the Path of Life with sure foresight; they
 are those who have crossed the threshold from man
to higher man; they are those who serve the Creator's
 Purpose in full consciousness that they are of the
Creator and in full knowledge of the way in which
they serve; they are the Awakened Ones.

- (4:2) - (Divine Consciousness)
 Next in value are those of goodwill and awakening
 consciousness; they are those who strive for Divine 
Consciousness; they are those of the
Cosmotheist Community. - (4:3) - (Higher Consciousness)
After them are all those of the stock from which
 the Awakened Ones arise, those of the same race-soul;
 for they collectively, are the reservoir in which higher man 
has his origin and from which he draws his replacements. (4:4)
 But in this reservoir men are also ranked in value:
 Those uncorrupted by false reason are higher, and
those corrupted are lower.

Those of goodwill are higher, and those indifferent or 
self-seeking or serving alien masters are lower. (4:6)
 Those who have mastered themselves are higher,
and those who have not are lower.

Those with great capability for knowledge are higher,
and those with less capability are lower.

Those who are strong constitution and well formed are
higher, and those who are weak or sickly or ill formed
 are lower.

And those men who, even though of the stock from
which the Awakened Ones arise, are corrupted of ill will,
 undisciplined, without the capability for knowledge,
weak, or ill formed cannot claim value by reason of their
 stock alone.

 For they may threaten, through evil action, the
One Purpose, if they are corrupted by false reason
and of ill will.

And they may also threaten, through weakening of
the stock, the One purpose, if they lack the capability
 for discipline or knowledge or are of poor constitution.

- Chapter V (5) - v. 1 - 6

And all other living things may also be ranked in value: men
 not of the stock from which the Awakened Ones arise; the beasts
 of the field, the birds of the air, the fishes of the sea; the
 smaller things which creep or crawl or fly; the large and small
 forms of inanimate life.

Each living thing has a potential for good effect and for evil
 effect, for serving the Creator's Purpose and for contravening it.
 This potential is both inherent in a thing and dependent on its
 relationships with other living things, and it determines the value
 of the thing.

Let us now how this potential is judged:

 The Potential for good which is inherent in a thing is its potential
 for attaining Divine Consciousness or for giving rise to new things
 which may attain Divine Consciousness; its potential for good which
 is dependent on its relationships with other things is its potential
 for hindering the attaining of Divine Consciousness by other things.

A Thing's potential for evil, which is dependent on the things relations
 to other things is its potential for hindering the attaining of Divine
 Consciojness by other things.

A thing may have a high potential for attaining Divine Consciousness,
 but it may also have a potential for hindering another living thing with
 a higher potential for attaining Divine Consciouness; or it may have a
 low potential for attaining Divine Consciousness, yet have a high poteltial
 for aiding another living thing in attaining Divine Consciousness.

We can deem a thing good or evil only after we have weighted together
 its potential for both good and evil effect. For this weighing we must have
 knowledge; for this reason does the Cosmotheist seek knowledge.

Chapter VI (6) v. 1 - 10

A living thing may realize its potential for good effect by proving
 either physical or spiritual sustenance for the stock of men who from which
 the Awakened Ones aries:

 It may provide physical sustencance, as the sheaf of grain or the steer
 provieds bread or meat.

 Or it may sustain those things which provide sustenance, as the grass
 of the meadow nourishes the steer or the microbes of the soil allow the
  grain to grow.

 Or it may provide spiritual sustenance, as the trees of the forest, the
  flowers of the field, the strong and graceful beasts of prey provide beauty
   for the eye, instruction for the mind, and inspiration for the soul.

 And a living thing may realize its potential for evil effect in all the
  ways it may harm the stock of men from which the awakened Ones aries:

 It may weaken or destroy that stock physically, as the plague microbe
 or the debilitating parasite weaks its havoc.

 Or it may deny that stock sustenance, as the swarm of locusts destroys
  the sustaining grain.

 Or it may corrupt that stock spiritually, as the stock of alien race
 soul spreads its spiritual poison.


         or it may corrupt that stock through a mixing of bloods.
The first two of these evil effects may come from things which have a
 low potential for attaining Divine Consciousness, but the latter two come
 only from things which are close in potential for attaining Divine Conscionsness
  to the stock from which the Awakened Ones aris.

 Chapter VII (7) v. 1 - 8

Let us understand these latter evils:

 The process of Creation is a process of developing self-consciousness in
  the Whole. its way has progressed from blindness to foresightedness, from
  unguided groping to the threshold of consciously directed progress.

 Because its way has been a groping, bound in the fog of imperfect
 consciousness, Creation has followed many channels; the Urge has taken
 many directions.

In some channels the current of progress has been slow, and in some it
 has been rapid. Some channels have ended in stagnat ponds, and the Urge has
 found no outlet. Some ponds have dried up altogether.

 In other channels the current has been rapids, but the couse of the
  channel has gone askew: reason has developed without consciousness, strength
  without discipline, action without service for the One Purpose.

Thus are we to undederstand the diversity of the forms of life.

In one channel the current has been suffieciently rapid and the course
 sufficiently true that the stream of life has reached the edge of the god.
 Beyond lies the open water in which distant goals can bee seen and a straight
 course chosen with foresight.


 But other currents also run near the edgo of the fog, and the danger still
  exists of being swpt into a false channel, of being carried back into the fog,
   of emptying into a stagnant pond. And the closer we are these false channels,
    the greater the danger.

Chapter VIII (8)  v. 1 - 2

 And so, then, those living things which provide necessary physical and
spioritual sustenance for the stock from which arise the awakened ones are
good and should be preserved: the grain and the steer, just as the living
forest, the flowers of the field, the eagle and the leapard, and all other
living things necessary to these.

And those living things which weaken the stock from which the Awakened
Ones arise, or deny it necessary sustence, or pull down its potential for
divine conscusness are evil, and measures must be taken against them; against
 the disease organisms which plague sustenance, against the lesser stocks
 which myay mix or corrupt. And as the last of these evils is the greatest,
  so must the strongest measures be taken against it.

Chapter IX (9) v. 1 - 5

 In evaluating living things this also must be understood:

Our stock has reached a threshold which separates the unconscious way of
 progress from the conscious way, and the values of all things change when this
 threshold is crossed.

In an age of immanent consciousness some living things severd through their
 very hostility to adcance our stock, as the wolf strengthens the stock of sheep
 by pruning away the slow and the infirm.

In an age of awakened consciousness, these things cease to serve; our stock
  will prune itself, and the pruning will better serve the One Purpose, because
  it will be done with foresight.

 But at the threshold we must use the greatest care; its crossing is a time
  of danger, in which the old way no longer serves, and the new way still waits
  beyond the threshold.
 -=-  ChapterX(10)-=-  v. 1 - 5 
 (10:1) - (What is Most Sacred)

  And these are the qualities which man shall value in himself, 
both higher man and the stock from which higher man arises.
(10:2) - (Fire of the Soul illuminates the Way)        

 First, the brightness of the Divine Spark in his soul, which is the 
immanent consciousness of the Whole in him. The brighter it burns,
the truer is a man's inner sense of direction.
(10:3) - (The Illumination is Divine Consciousness) 
Second, the strength of his reason, for the perfect union of reason with
immanent consciousness is divine Consciousness. The stronger is a man's reason, the more effectively can he implement the Creator's Urge and the more truly steer his life's course in the direction illuminated by the Divine Spark in his soul.

   Third, the strength
 of his character, which is his
 ability to act in accord with
 his immanent consciousness and reason,
 overcoming the lesser urgings in himself, seeking consciousness
 rather than pleasure, knowledge rather than
 happiness, true progress rather than wealth. it is his
 ability to subordinate all the extraneous urgings which
 are of the nature of sub-man and man to
Urge, which is the nature of higher man.

	Fourth, the physical constitution of his body, that it might serve well the One
 Purpose. Thus are strength and soundness and keen senses to be valued, for they make
  the body a better tool, and beauty, for it manifests mans Divine nature and inspires
   his efforts to act in accord with the urgings of his race-soul.
 Chapter XI v. 1 - 6

These are the ways in which man shall conscusly serve the Creators Purpose, combining
 true reaon with immanent consciousness in the advancement of his stock along the Path of Life:

	He shall keep his stock pure; he shall not permit his blood to mix with that of other stocks,
 for each stock follows a different course along the Path of Life. When stocks are mixed, the
 inner sense of direction is lost with it the potential for attaining Divine Consciousness.

He shall increase the number of his stock, and he shall make every land wherein he dwells,
  free of the danger of mixing with other stocks.

	He shall so arrange his laws and his institutions that in each generation men and women
  shall enger numbers of offspring in proortion to their own value: the best shall engender
   the most, and the worst none.

He shall guide the progress of his stock from generation to generation: he shall act as
  the wolf and the winter have acted, pruning and selecting; and he shall act as have all
  those foces of the WHole which change the seed of his stock.

 And he shall do these things in full consciousness of his identity as the substance of
 the Creator and the agent of the Creators Purpose.

The Symbol of Life The
insigne worn by the members of the Cosmotheist Community 
is the Rune of Life. It is one of the Characters in the ancient runic alphabet, or futhark, used many centuries ago by our people in Europe. Each of
the ancient runes represented not only a sound but also an idea or
a group of related ideas. The Rune of Life, the man-rune, the mother rune,
represented life, birth,
rebirth, renewal and creation. For us the Rune of Life retains all these meanings and represents in addition the never-ending process of self-creation by which the
Whole approaches completion. It represents the upward path of Life which we strive to follow. The Rune of Life ties together for us the past and the future of our people. And it signifies our
radical and implacable opposition to the contraveners of the Creators Purpose and the enemies of our people.
