Humanity is now in a collective state of crisis: having abandoned the immeasurable soul with its meaning and dreams, having rejected the irrational emotions with desires and passions, having despised the body upon which it sees as a disposable defective machine, and only focusing on developing the mind and its thinking skills.
The trend we see today is to think of people are computers who need to have “imperfection” programmed away. Our organizations focus on achieving objectively measurable goals. Our research focuses on making humans more like perfect machines. Our education aims to rush children to become thinking adults. Our spirituality is about how to become as perfect as computers. “Being human” is increasingly seen as irrational, obsolete and disgusting. Even something as fundamentally human as male and female is vanishing.
When people witness what Humanity has done to Planet Earth and how it has abused animals as well as fellow humans, many of them feel that the Humanity is the scum of the Universe and their hearts longed for its annihilation. Many people also cannot feel the Goodness-Beauty-Truth-Meaning in their lives, and believing that their existence is just a worthless false emptiness, are eager to annihilate themselves to end their suffering. These suicidal and escapist desires hitched upon the traditional religious concept of the endless cycle of suffering reincarnation, attracting many who pursue a connection with their souls by ironically cutting their souls out.
These suicidal and escapist desires also hitched upon the traditional religious concepts of Doomsday and Heaven, leading some people to think that the world is filled with darkness, that Humanity is Evil, and that they themselves are also irredeemable. Hence, both Humanity and they should be destroyed as quickly as possible. Armed with weapons and bombs, they carried out their sacred mission and left Planet Earth for a safe place without suffering and pain.
There is nothing wrong with Humanity constantly striving for perfection, truth and eternity, because this is part of the process of human evolution. However, sacrificing the soul for the sake of the progress (such as an extremist view of Transhumanism) is not worth the price. The dream of the perfect human can only be achieved if the body, heart, mind and soul evolve together.
One’s personal value has nothing to do with achievement, ability or contribution. Our value is an innate birthright; something that we can explore and develop. While Humanity has created a lot of harm and pain, but it is also a masterpiece of the Creator built to express Goodness-Beauty-Truth-Meaning, and thus is also endowed with intrinsic value.
The goal of the Rainbow Path is to fully express the true potential and value of the “human being”, to guide Humanity to express Goodness-Beauty-Truth-Meaning again, and use these potential and value to realize the dream of Heaven on Earth. Only after Humanity has resolved its present crisis can it safely enter the space age and prosper for many millennia.
Along the Rainbow Path, each of us answers: who I am, to think who I am, to feel who I am, and to embody who I am. Much like the seven colors balanced perfectly within the white light, the practitioner of the Rainbow Path threads the Seven Great Paths in balance and harmony. This rainbow bridges Heaven and Earth, bringing inspiration from the inner world through the human being into the outer world.
The Vanishing Path: Practitioners aim to solve the problem completely and thereby become unemployed from their life work. Practitioners must let go of the need to be valued and depended upon by others, accept themselves as a servant working for the people, and focus on realizing their work in the physical world. Practitioners cannot act like crooked doctors who refrain from prescribing the correct medication in order to keep patients coming back for their own self-benefit or narcissism. Practitioners build their work on a foundation of a future where they are no longer needed.
The Creative Path: Practitioners aim to live their potential as Creators of Goodness-Beauty-Truth-Meaning. They bring life into the dead, imagination into the logical, possibilities into the limited, passion into activity, meaning into the mundane and creation into existence. Embodying the power of creation, they realize previously unknown possibilities in their lives, bringing forth new knowledge, insights, art and technology. They utter: “In the name of the Creator, I breathe Life into the Dead, and grant a soul unto the False Emptiness.“
The Sincere Path: Practitioners aim to sincerely accept, face, express and work with their situation, thoughts, feelings, desires and inspirations. The physical world is the only space where development is possible, because it is where people suffer. They find meaning and gain wisdom through suffering, developing and realizing the potential of “human being”. Leaving the endless ocean of suffering is not about creating a false, lifeless, empty serenity, but to accept, feel and realize one’s own Goodness-Beauty-Truth-Meaning. Practitioners do not use isolation and escape as a foundation, but integrate themselves into their inner world of endless creation. They work to turn the crooked into the upright, ugly into the beautiful, fake into the wholesome, suffering into the meaningful, wrong into wisdom, and weakness into strength. Releasing sentences are one of the primary means of such inner transformation for practitioners.
The Human Path: Practitioners aim to fully embrace, experience and express Goodness-Beauty-Truth-Meaning though their Body-Heart-Mind-Soul. Based on the foundation of the complete experience of “human being”, practitioners open the door of the senses, accept the body as their home, use the mind’s power to gain insight, unleash the passions of feelings and feel the gratitude of the soul. Practitioners use a variety of exercises to become sensitive to their senses of touch, life, movement, warmth, balance, smell, taste, vision, hearing, language, thinking, self; this allows them to feel the awe and mystery of “human being” and Life itself.
The Knowledge Path: Practitioners aim to accept, learn, master and use evidence-based knowledge to change themselves and fulfill their life mission. Based on the foundation that knowledge is always imperfect, we can build beliefs and judgment that we can trust using scientific observation and experimentation. Practitioners study modern materialistic science, psychology and current affairs in depth to prevent them from being misled and deluded. The practitioner must also understand that their knowledge will evolve, that science can only refute hypothesizes but not prove anything even though it can provide a high probability of being correct. The opinions obtained from speculation, faith-based beliefs, subjective commentary and spiritual channeling are only regarded as references and cannot be relied upon.
The Freedom Path: Practitioners aim to achieve total inner freedom, without being limited by the future, past, others, emotions, thoughts, or desires. The mind of a successful practitioner is like a cloudless sky, accurately judging situations, and acting in a straightforward and firm manner. Some methods employed include simplifying our lifestyles to avoid pursuing unnecessary goals, observing and distinguishing between internal factors and cause-and-effect, strategically pampering ourselves, strengthening the exercise of willpower, attaining an in-depth knowledge of modern psychology and so on. The practitioner understands that suffering is self-created, desire is endless, emotions are untrustworthy, thoughts are false, and any thought-emotion-desire will fill our consciousness completely regardless of its size and importance.
The Sustainable Path: Practitioners aim to master the materialistic world and deploy materialistic support strategically to achieve their life mission. Based on the intention of creating a sustainable lifestyle, practitioners study intensely to acquire skills such as money management, staying healthy, obtaining employment, social networking and daily life activities. For example, if practitioners wish to be full-time artists and open their own art gallery, then they must think long-term how to obtain the necessary income to sustain their project, rather than act rashly on blind faith or confidence. Most people are either totally materialistic or totally rejecting materialism, and often take shortcuts such as “The Secret”, multi-level marketing and investing in Bitcoin. The practitioner neither chooses extremes nor takes shortcuts. Although it is not necessary to achieve excellent results in this area, it is important to focus on being down-to-earth life and remember that materialistic resources are only tools to achieve the goal and not the goal itself.
