The Civilization of Good People
Catharism can be boldly called a unique precedent of a divine civilization that took place across Europe. Alas! Almost nothing is known about the solar civilization of good people and what is known has almost completely been taken from denunciations of the Inquisition. The spiritual movement which covered all Europe in the 9-13th centuries was erased and sealed.
In the 1980s, the Vatican archives were partially opened and an entire good universe from the Cathar civilization was revealed in front of the stunned researchers. Since those times, a spiritual movement, which can be called a Cathar Renaissance, has started spreading all over Europe. This is the first sign of a new epoch. The laurel blossoms – the Cathars are descending to the world!
WHY AM I A CATHAR?
I met Cathars when I was twenty. I was studying at the university at that time and was just like an average young man. The purity of the Cathars impressed me most of all. I noticed that they thought, spoke and acted in the same way (in purity); and I also sensed the presence of Goddess Mother.
After a couple of visits to Cathar prayer meetings I was absolutely sure that I had finally come back to my eternal family. I did not have any doubts about becoming a Cathar forever.
Why am I a Cathar? Simply said: Because it is the only spiritual way of life that makes sense to me.
For the first time in my life - being in my sixties (!) - I have a sense of being in the right school, in the divine school of the Goddess Virgin Mother.
When I first heard the Cathars speak about the highest Divine Mother, everything fell into place; all my searching and questions ended right there. She would be all I ever needed. I was elated, a whole new dimension opened, a new birth, new life, new future!
I am a Cathar because this phenomenal new way of living actively promotes astonishing personal and global transformation in an accessible form. Cathar spiritual practises elevate me to a tangible reality where unbelievable miracles occur.
I have followed this path for nearly five years, but each day I wake up and realize that my journey just began. Catharism is always fresh and never fails to surprise me with wondrous discovery. It quite simply answers all my questions ... and much more.
I have no doubt that the sheer strength of Cathar love can change the world in a positive way. Catharism is completely different – there is nothing else like it for sure.
Since becoming a Cathar I have experienced unbelievable happiness, freedom, new abilities, creative gifts spiritual treasure, and pure joy.
If you ask me "Why did you choose Catharism?" then I shall reply "I didn't choose Catharism - it chose me!". I believe that for many cathars, a kind of destiny guides them towards Catharism - for some : that process takes place quickly whilst they are still young and for others (like myself) the process of being guided may take decades. The most important part of this process (I believe) relies upon the ability to recognise the truth when it confronts you - this is the gift of discernment.
I had spent 30 years reading hundreds of books as I searched for the great spiritual truth that was always just beyond my reach before I finally made a breakthrough. In 1995 I purchased a PC with broadband connection and began to search for spiritual truth. Within a few months I found a site that detailed medieval cathar beliefs - the truth jumped off the screen and hit me between the eyes, this was the great treasure that I had been searching for!
Is there one cathar belief that is more powerful than the others? Opinions will differ but for me it is the absolute separation of the good/kind god from the evil/unkind god who is our enemy and that our kind father is completely untainted by evil.
Catharism captivates with the high ideals of kindness, purity, knightly nobility. To be a Cathar is an honour. Humanity misses true, universal spirituality. Catharism is a spirituality of the future century!
For me Catharism became a way of life. Since my childhood I have been looking for the meaning of life. I tried to understand why there is so much lying, evil, betrayal and suffering in the world. I have been searching for truth, true friendship. Only among the Cathars I have found what I had been looking for, my soul has found a home.
It's great joy and happiness for a man to live among kind and pure people, to acquire true faithful friends among divine near ones!
For me the Cathar community is a house of the very Heavenly Father of pure love on the earth. It’s the place where the soul can find the greatest consolation, because like in the parable about the prodigal son, the Mother and the Father, and your own brothers and sisters will be faithful to you in spite of everything and always wait for you there. They are your truest friends on the earth who are able to see within you not your sins and weaknesses, but the kindest divinity that even you don’t suspect. They are able to love you as much as the Goddess Mother loves every human soul, purely and unconditionally.
The Cathar way reveals for me new life when you live as on earth among other people, but you really dwell in the empyrean heavens, because you experience bliss and joy comparable only with the joy of kind deities and anointed ones.
Catharism is a unique path of transfiguration, holiness and divinization, which changes a spiritual devotee beyond recognition in a matter of months, transforming any sinner into a great lamp of kindness, love and supreme wisdom!
