Introduction to Wayism (1)
This text comes from the back cover of the quintessential book on the topic, WAYISM: the Primary Text, published by Wayist Books in 2011. It explains a bit where Wayism comes from.
Wayism is the lifestyle through which advanced souls fulfill the purpose of their lives.
The Wayist lifestyle and worldview is ancient, like your soul, and is the foundation upon which great Teachers of the past labored. Buddha Gotama called his teaching the Middle Way. Lord Krishna, in the Bhagavad Gita expounded the teaching as The Eighteen-fold Way. Sage Lao-tzu called his teaching The Way and its Virtues (Dao De Jing). Jesus worked in Judea, Persia, Parthia, and North India, and called his movement The Way.
The teaching is simple to understand, humble, and compassionate. The authors, although sagacious, use short, easy-read chapters to coach and the bulk of the book consists of inspirational material to nurture the soul on its path. You will discover layers of truth and guidance in the text that will last for years to come as your soul develop its spiritual consciousness. If you could own only one book in life—this will be your soul’s companion through to the end.
Wayism is the worldview that helps advanced souls understand not only the purpose of life but also how our minds, souls, and spirits work—and how best to care for each.
You exist for a reason, and your ancient soul has a fascinating history that is now coming to fruition. Life on Earth is our school, and you are destined for a wonderful and exiting life in the hereafter. Everyone, irrespective of religious affiliation or creed, eventually fulfill the purpose of their lives. Advanced souls, however want to know more about the journey, the destination, and their unique purpose in life.
When the Way is obscured in religious enterprise, dogma, and ignorance, it is always reinstated. Now, after more than 2,000 years, in the era of 2012, it is again time for renewal.
A certain sense of freedom, awe, and peace settles in the heart when the soul recognizes its origin and its path. Wayism removes guilt, fear, and uncertainty and replaces it with joy, freedom to be an authentic being, prosperity, and happiness.
Whether your inner being resonates with ancient philosophies of the East, the West, agnosticism or the esoteric traditions, you will find a homecoming for your soul in the beauty and purpose of The Way.
