The Illuminati’s pillars are cornerstones for those who seek the truth, and signs of unity for all who walk alongside you on the path. The pillars serve as gentle instructions to those who look up from the rocks of the Earth and choose to follow the Light, pointing them toward the path that you have already discovered.
The Illuminati is not a church, religion, political group, or charity organization, but an elite collective of global influencers who work to further the interests of the human species as a whole. Our decisions are independent of all human divisions, including religious and political differences. We operate solely for the benefit of the human species we have been entrusted to protect, and therefore make no demands of our citizens regarding personal worship, morality, or belief.
Citizens loyal to the ideals of the Illuminati and who seek membership in our organization are often referred to as followers of Illuminati. They are free to choose any life path they desire and follow any morals they wish, providing that their beliefs are always in the interests of the human species as a whole. Followers of Illuminati forgo religious, geographical, and generational differences to work as one unit with many distinct parts, accepting that each part must be unique to function properly.
Wealth is commonly vilified by those who have never met it. Many people journey through life believing that the pursuit of money is the cause of all evil — forgoing the fact that often money can solve life’s most harrowing tribulations. Is the money a mother uses to care for her child evil? Is the money an artist is provided in return for years of practice and hardship evil? Is the money a corrupted corporation pays to its employees evil?
Money has no feeling, no voice, no soul. When one is hungry, they cannot eat paper or gold. The same money that can be used to hurt can also be used to heal. To the dictator, money is a means for weapons and death. To the beggar, money is a means for food and life.
This planet is rich enough for all people in all places to live in the joys of plenty. A life of Abundance is one filled to the brim, spilling over its edges — a freedom to help those around you because you no longer need to help yourself. The value of money is measured in the hands of those who hold it. To a beggar, a hundred is a lot; to a millionaire, a hundred is little. A billionaire can save hundreds of thousands of lives simply by giving food and medicine and shelter to those who have none. How many lives can the poor save?
The path of every person’s life is hidden: the rich are born with no knowledge of their wealth, as are the poor and their poverty. Though you may feel that the struggles you face in this moment are undeserved, know that these are merely impermanent and temporary. An empire will fall so greater empires can be made from its ashes; a life will crumble so a greater future may be built with its pieces. Find peace in knowing that the darkest moments in your life are merely prerequisites for the life of Abundance you are meant to have.
A healthy body costs the time and effort invested into exercise and preparation of food. A powerful mind costs the hours invested into reading and study. Many costs do not require money to pay, but money gives a numerical value to everything on this planet for the ease of trade.
Money’s sole purpose is to place a numerical value upon knowledge and effort for the purpose of trade. A law student trades money to a school for the knowledge he requires for his career. The knowledge a lawyer gained from her teachers is traded for money, which in turn can be traded for other people’s knowledge and effort even if they do not require the services of a lawyer.
If the Illuminati has no need for profit, why not simply give unlimited money to any who ask for it? Why are the Testaments available to order when our organization can afford to provide copies to every citizen for free? A house is more valuable than a handful of sand because of the effort and materials required to build it. Sand requires no knowledge or effort or materials to build, therefore it has no value.
There is value in the words of the Testaments, but also value in the trees that must be cut for the paper, in the workers who must create the designs and layouts and illustrations, in the ink for the printing, in the packages for the delivery. Hundreds of human minds with decades of experience go in to every element of the Testament’s production — while some minds merely sit on the sidelines, complaining of the costs to print, design, package, and deliver to their doorstep. While the Illuminati has no need for profits, we also have no need for people who cannot see the value of things that are not free.
