The Purpose of Life

Talk about the purpose of life must start with a reference to the chapter in Wayism's Primary Text on the topic. Nothing says it better. In fact, that piece of prose tells the entire story not only about the purpose of life but that which Wayists believe and live. We quote the entire chapter here by permission of the publishers, Wayist Books . T <><> he purpose of life for the soul is evolution To metamorphose into heaven is our destination For the soul, life on Earth is the school Time after time, it will return Death is for the body, not for the soul Learning to become a spirit, in heaven to be born Human nature is such an animal Egotistic, narcissistic, selfish, and banal Trampling neighbor creatures, wasteful, destructive, and fearful The soul learning humility, simplicity, compassion and of the divine in the infinitesimal Newborn spirits start immortality in heaven So much to do, so many worlds to see Active, busy lives await them Amazing bea

Nature of the Divine Principle

Deism with a panentheistic slant   Wayism is philosophically close to the standard definition of deism. However, in practice, many Wayists express their lifestyle of spiritual consciousness in panentheistic forms. Wayism is a deism since creation exists because it is upheld by the energies of the One Supreme Being which is external from creation itself. The One is however not the Creator of the universes but Two forces that emanate from the One are responsible for all of creation.

Some Wayists who adhere to the Deistic principle can, however, be aware of the Way as a diety. Wayism encourages adherents who are so inclined to feel free to form a relationship with the Way and even the great Teachers (who

Foundation of Wayism

Wayism makes no claim as to when it was founded. It states that it is the original Way, the process and method of the purpose of life. In the seminal book, Wayism: the Primary Text, it has this to say about the question when was Wayism founded: “An explanation of the purpose of life, the stages of life, and the wonderful laws of nature that regulate the life cycles of a particular plant species cannot be said to be a religion that was founded at any particular time—it is merely a statement of the facts as observed and known to us. Wayism is like that, an explanation of the purpose of human life, the cycles, and stages of development and its eventual metamorphosis into a spiritual being—it is merely a statement of the facts as it has always been.” Wayism makes mention of adherents that existed in the past five thousand years, among which are Krishna (4 th c. BCE), Isis (3 rd c. BCE), Melchizedek (2 nd c. BCE), several pre-Socratic (pantheistic) Greek philosophers (1 st c. BCE), G
