100% of the proceeds of this beautiful Cathars Creed goes to The Path. 


Our organization’s guiding principles are based upon excerpts from the Cathar Creed of 1244 A.D.

It reads as follows:

It has no membership, save those who know they belong.
It has no rivals because it is non-competitive.
It has no ambition – it seeks only to serve.

It is not of itself because it seeks to enrich all groups and religions.
It acknowledges all great teachers of al the ages who have shown the truth of love.
Those who participate, practice the truth of love in all their being.

It seeks not to teach, but to be, and by being, enriched.
It recognizes the whole planet as a being of which we are a part.
It recognizes that the way we are may be the way of those around us because we are the way.

It recognizes that the time has come for the supreme transmutation, the ultimate alchemical act of conscious change of the ego in to a voluntary return to the whole.
It does not proclaim itself with a loud voice, but in the subtle realms of loving.
It salutes all those in the past who have blazoned the path, but have paid the price.
It admits no hierarchy or structure, for no one is greater than another.
It members shall know each other by their deeds and being, and by their eyes
and by no other outward sign, save the fraternal embrace.

Each one will dedicate their life to the silent loving of their neighbor and
environment, and the planet, will carry out their task, however exalted or humble.
It recognizes the supremacy of the great idea, which may only be accomplished
if the human race practices the supremacy of love.
It has no reward to offer, either here or in the hereafter,
save that of the ineffable joy of being and loving.

Each shall seek to advance the cause of understanding,
doing good by stealth and teaching only by example.
It has no secret, no arcanum, no initiation, save that of true understanding of the power of love and that, if we want it to be so,
the world will change, but only if we change.
All who belong, below; they belong to the Church of Love.
