Materials, possessions, appropriations,

membership, rivals, ambition, boundaries,

nationalisms, differences………….

These are ulterior motives, ulterior agendas.

They are the bywords of life in the world of

form which are repeated internally,

consciously or allowed to drone away

in the unconscious. They are built into our

conditioning and education

but they are a fabrication,

a conspiratorial dream we are forced

to participate in if we want to find human success,

respect and approval from our social witnesses.



700 years ago a small group of Christian

mystics moved around Europe defying

the dominant Church of Rome and living

out the opposites of these bywords

in their lives. They had no church,

no fabric to ostentatiously display

their faith or liturgies with. Instead,

they found secluded meeting places

in mountain passes and forests to

listen to those where were ready

to receive their final blessings.

They had no possessions,

needing little to live simply,

and their only byword was ‘understanding.’

They served others tirelessly and silently

with unconditional love and compassion

as they worked behind the scenes of the

greatest religious dictatorship of all time.

They epitomized goodness and healing

in every breath and so were known as

the Good People, Les Bonnes,’ and

the Perfect, ‘Les Parfaits.’


Goodness in human form feels no shame or fear.

It is the eternal witness in the fusion of the

visible and the invisible.

The Good believed that as humans are the world

and the way, they will change themselves.

And we can and must!

By living according to our true nature,

always honest with ourselves and all others.
