The Philosophy and Practices of the Society of the Faith Master
Society of the Faith Master is
our optional non-secular gratitude outreach. Gratitude is the Survival
Lightkey for us all, empowerment for all, whether you have a religious
belief or do not have any such beliefs. All are acceptable in the
gratitude immersion world we are building, with those who are willing to
live their lives with gratitude.
This society is for those who seek
the religious dimension of faith and gratitude. We have a strong dogma or
code of belief in the inherent goodness of our species and its future
as spiritual beings. Our society is designed to be a high energy place, a
happy place, based on building self-esteem, gratitude, praise and faith.
The purpose of our worship services and
classes is to enhance the quality of life of our members and to
help our members develop community, structure, meaning and a
superordinate goal. That means helping our members develop
faith, building their self-esteem, teaching them how to use the
Gratitude Law of
Attraction, and giving them the other teachings of the
society such as communication skills, entrepreneurial skills and

We Are All on One Planet
The world is rapidly
becoming One World. The fact is in five hours a plane can enter your
country carrying concealed nuclear weapons and you can face a terrorist
act. Or within the same amount of time you can travel to a
developing country and provide aid and relief after a disaster. In
addition, the emergence of internet based social media makes it possible
for international business to thrive in a way it never could before.
There is even equipment that can print out prototype samples of products
from an internet connection. We are in whole new world.
Interactions Between People
Are The Key
But is is still about
the interactions between people. Our VERY survival as
a species may depend upon our willingness to come together in
groups, to build each others self esteem, to regenerate our world’s
environment, to flow into confluence with others and to seek the one
point of mutual agreement in every situation.
TOGETHER WE CAN TRANSFORM
OUR WORLD USING GRATITUDE COMMUNICATION SKILLS! You are invited to
become a member of the International Gratitude Business Culture and
deploy the skills of the Gratitude Business Model in the international
Nowhere in the world are the
skills of self esteem building and gratitude more needed than in the fields of international
trade and development. Since we are all coming together in real
time we have coined the word Polyeconomics to delineate our
participation in the world economy based on trade and development.
Polyeconomics is the economic equivalent of
community ecology in the natural environment. All components of the
system are valuable and if any group does not play its role in the
community, the entire system could fall into disarray
The same concept applies to the countries of the
World Polyeconomy must develop sustainable industries so they can
flourish and make their own unique contributions. The world polyeconomic
systems flow more and toward a global economy.
Polyeconomics is based on ecology, on the model
of natural communities, modified for human cultures and civilizations.
Just as there are trophic levels in the natural ecosystems including
producers, consumers, decomposers, so do human populations and countries
fall into discrete levels of development.
Some of the Development
Levels of economic production include:
As defined by the
International Gratitude Empowerment Institute (IGEI) based on the
natural community model, a polyeconomy is:
An international business
and development system, massive in size, transcending national
boundaries, maintaining the integrity of each members unique language
(though English has become the world polyeconomic language), cultural
framework which interfaces all the countries of the world.
believes that the Polyeconomy in development cannot be halted by
barriers of trade, protectionism, import substitution, all are futile in
the face of this evolutionary thrust of humanity. All will fall in
the end before the onslaught of the forces behind the world polyeconomy.
The World Polyeconomy will either be one of competitive cut-throat
business or cooperative interactions across national lines. It is
up to us how we define our world and how we move forward as a species.
Thus the world Polyeconomy
is the ultimate interacting, interfacing World economic community.
National sovereignty is not involved. Language
change is not necessarily involved for the majority of the people in a
country. We know that American English has become the Language of the
Polyeconomy, driven by commerce, scholarship and one of the newest
paradigm shift, the Internet. Cultural integrity is not involved.
Neither local cultures, nor local languages, nor local
cultures/lifestyle need change within the heartland of any country.
Most of the people of most countries in the
world will not interface in the Polyeconomy. Just as most animals within
a territory do not impinge on the outer boundaries of the total range of
that species, 90% of the people will not meet. Cultures and nations need
only be flexible on the outer boundaries of science, technology and
trade. Note that interacting members of the Polyeconomy only impinge on
the edges where they contact other countries.

IGEI is a Social Enterprise Corporation
|Our Mantra - Always Be Grateful! Always!
The International Gratitude
(IGEI) is a social enterprise corporation
that has social benefit purposes. The International Gratitude
Empowerment Institute (IGEI) sells products and services for creating a
gratitude immersion world. In addition to our profit motive, we are
creating a gratitude immersion worldwide community based on the Way of
Success through Gratitude.
The Way of Success through Gratitude includes these
Gratitude Healing Ways
Gratitude In Business
Gratitude & Spiritual Healing
Gratitude Communication Skills
Society of the Faith Master
In addition to our profit motive, it is a social
purpose corporation with these additional social benefits and goals:
1) Community: To create and
provide an environment for low and middle income people to learn how to
work together positively by teaching personal self-esteem building and
how to build self-esteem in others, thus developing a community based on
faith and gratitude resulting in a gratitude immersion culture.
To empower girls and women through special programs including sports and
entertainment projects for self-esteem building and character
development. To enable them to have a superordinate goal of giving to
the world with no expectation of personal return such as tree planting
projects to fight climate change. To use gratitude in sports to give
strength to women and girls to heal from sexual abuse and domestic
3) Entrepreneurship: Develop
social entrepreneurship projects through micro-financing of small and
medium-sized enterprises including entrepreneurial training programs.
4) Technology: To teach skills to
minorities, women and youth to become Mobile Entrepreneurs through
technologies such as Skype, webinars and podcasts anywhere in the world.
Today’s entrepreneur needs to master these skills even if they have a
brick and mortar outlet for their business. We will teach them how they
can use these new technologies to build their business.
5) Spiritual Development: Through
our self-esteem building programs we will increase personal fulfillment,
enable people to create peaceful loving relationships. When we build
self-esteem, we build a person's spirit. Spiritual development is the
key to bringing us all together to work and live together in a peaceful
world. Spiritual development in our workforce makes people want to be
productive, to be creative and to give their loyalty to each other and
their employers. Without spiritual development it is difficult for
people to lead productive, happy lives.
6): Spiritual Therapy Programs:
Many people understand how important it is to build the self-esteem of
young people and working age people. But many people don't understand
the needs of the Elderly, Disabled and Wheelchair Rider populations.
Some see them as unimportant or nonproductive. But many people don't
understand how they feel and the benefits we all can gain from them. The
fact is, in the IGEI Gratitude Immersion World, we understand that these
populations have a great deal to offer. The fact is they have much they
can learn, much to feel, and much to share which can help us understand
gratitude in many ways.
There are many stories of
are not in wheelchairs but are bedridden,
who make their families' lives happy by their
cheerful, loving, giving, and self-esteem building personalities.
Everyone has something to give. But the fact is, no one can give from an
empty dish. No matter where you live there are others around you who
need positive energy. How do we give them a way to build their own self-esteem
so they can give to their world?
Through spiritual therapy you
will learn how to use gratitude as a power to build
your own self-esteem and reach out into the world to give to
others. One way is by being in the outdoors,
fishing and being close to nature where
your wholeness. By creating intergenerational
volunteer programs you practice the gratitude
skills you are learning. We share with them
the spiritual therapy programs of IGEI.
Spiritual Therapy is a spiritual healing method
that focuses on the rebuilding of inner wholeness. Techniques include
gratitude practices, self-esteem building, meditation, affirmations,
and reprogramming your subconscious mind. These techniques are
based on repetitive actions and interactions,
building new connections in your brain, to help yourself and
others to grow, become more creative and develop spiritual health.
Rebuilding your self-esteem is a vital part of spiritual therapy because
high self-esteem is the basis of wholeness.
Spiritual therapy is best performed in nature
because in nature you are able to reconnect with Mother Earth, become
grounded and feel the energy around us. Our original way of life was
immersed in the natural world. Once cities formed when agriculture
developed, the clearings of civilization through the development of
urbanization separated us from our connection with the earth. Spiritual
therapy through fishing is designed to reestablish that connection.
includes fishing as an
important ecospiritual component of IGEI.
Fishing teaches people to
hope, to keep trying over and over again.
