Welcome to the Science of Identity Foundation home page!
Quotes from Jagad Guru Chris Butler - founder of the Science of Identity Foundation:
Perfection means being in tune with reality. The first thing we must understand is reality—the reality of my identity, i.e., my essence, position, and function. Who am I? Just as a person does not identify himself as being the shirt that he is wearing, he also should not identify himself with the body that he is wearing.
The Search for Wisdom
The search for wisdom is a great challenge; to act on wisdom is an even greater challenge. To accept that you are spiritual in essence, that you are an eternal spark of life force, is to open the door on a whole new life. There are many questions now, and there will be many more questions ahead. There are many internal and external pressures against accepting and acting on this truth, and there will be even greater pressures in the future. So yes, it is challenging—just like running the Boston marathon is challenging, or trying to climb Mt. Everest is challenging. But unlike such “sporting,” “part-time” challenges, the search for perfect wisdom and the attempt to live by such wisdom is an ongoing eternal challenge—and it is real. Thus, only the most courageous people will actually accept this challenge. The ignorant, the fearful, and the lazy will remain as they are.
On Religious Fanaticism
There is nothing more dangerous to real religion than fanatics who seek to lord over others by force in the name of God.
There's a saying: "Misery likes company." So-called religious fanatics are so miserable that they want to create as much havoc in society as possible. They want others to join them in their misery.
Who are you?
The question "Who am I?" is not a philosophical football meant to be kicked around coffeehouses by pseudointellectuals. It's a real-life question. Nothing is more important and more relevant than to know who you are.
