Our infinite universe is ruled by laws and mathematics from which society draws its understanding of righteousness. But 85% of people do not know themselves, 10% profit from their ignorance, and 5% teach truth. The Righteous Way (Infinity Edition) freshly brings to full circle a three-part series which aims to inspire and motivate others toward self-actualization through Knowledge of Self and righteousness.

“Protect the child. Show him where if he doesn’t do right he is going to go to jail.”



Criminal Justice Reform


Saving Ourselves


Reuniting Families



We observe that in many states, spending on prisons and jails far surpass the cost for education. This trend must be reversed. Knowledge of Self is both a preventive and redemptive teaching. It is aimed to foster public safety by inspiring individual reform and lessening the racial impact of mass incarceration.
