Third Degree - Finding God Within - Rising from the Dead

Much has been said as to describe how to find Gnosis, but what is it exactly? The truths implied through Gnosis are so simple it is possible that everyone has obtained it at one point or the other during their life and most just make the choice to ignore or deny it. It is theorized that we are born in this state, and through indoctrination we are forced to forget.

It may be that Gnosis was thought to have been obtained by anyone who had the ability to read and write. Those who bettered themselves with intellectual knowledge in ancient times did have this one-up on common man. The steps of the sciences and intellectual knowledge are sometimes prerequisite to Gnosis, but they are themselves ultimately fallible, and not the only path. Any well educated Roman soldier may have been referred to as a divine by common man, but cloistered monks in Tibet probably had more of a spiritual connection with the divine, and could work more magic, than they.

All the words of Christ in the New Testament about heaven accurately describe the cosmic egg, or tessaract. He likened heaven to a tiny mustard seed, planted in the field of Earth which grows into a tree where birds come to perch. He said that the kingdom of heaven belongs to those like children, and must be accepted with the humbleness of a child. However an individual chooses to understand this concept, it boils down to an actual place of other dimensional quality. It is akin to a singularity as described in modern physics. It exists everywhere, observed mostly in the state of a proton, and on its surface is a complete image of the universe; and each of its' emanations are identical to all others. It acts as a mirror for conscious heavenly magical aetheric energy. It weighs our deeds within our hearts, like the parable of the Judgment of Christ or Osiris upon death suggests, except this judgment occurs constantly. The process of enlightenment, transcendence, ascension, etc. through Gnosis suggests that upon this ‘second birth’ one is no longer considered to be spiritually dead. In other words, once achieved, judgment no longer applies. There are many schools of thought on that concept, but it is definitely something to note.

Gnosis being the epitome of spiritual understanding allows for us to consciously unlock our potential. It grants one access to infinity, and allows one to do as they please; subject only to the consequences set forth in the Divine Blueprint and not those imposed upon by other men. Not only that, it harnesses the invisible strands of reality itself and pulls your desires ever closer. It opens the door to a power that allows one to work magic through the universal laws. This is commonly known today as The Laws of Attraction. The methods for working it can be found in many works, including the popular tome The Secret. These Laws of Attraction are a simple guideline and the methods of utilizing them are vast. It’s more of a simple and vague rule that can also be broken.

Breaking this rule is the ‘second birth’ and the mystical allegory of being ‘risen from the dead’. This concept weighs on the fact that we all judge ourselves for our actions by feeling guilt and fear, or a constant expectation of consequence for every action. It implies Einstein’s rule in physics; for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is a belief mankind agreed upon and made real for themselves, but does not actually exist upon the Divine Blueprint. Once realization is had that the mirror exists within our own conscious mind, we begin to utilize our mind as a tool by controlling those thoughts and free ourselves from this karmic wheel. The ups and downs of modern life on Earth are interrupted from their pattern. We are given the realization that the influence of the outer world need not affect our inner most being, and are returned to an innocent state of being like that of a child. With our slates wiped clean, heaven is ours again and we are no longer corrupt or spiritually dead.

Regardless of achieving this state of clarity, the heavenly magical aetheric energy never ceases. There are several ways all of us work magic every day of our life. Every single one of us is responsible for working magic constantly. Every thought we have and word we speak, and all forms of energy released and held within us go out into the cosmos to do their work. The clarity of Gnosis just allows one to commune with God through the mindful balancing of the weight of their deeds upon their heart, and wield that power knowingly. When in accordance to the Divine Plan, everything falls effortlessly into place.

Second Degree - Searching for God - Wielders of the Tesseract

Throughout history common man has found himself subject to be ruled over by an elite class of man. Whether it is divinely appointed rulers, or successful business men, the struggle to the top has always required those on top to oppress those beneath them in order to raise them up. All the while those beneath cry out to God to help them better their situation they find themselves stuck in. Those without luck are left praying for the grace of something outside of themselves to come and save them. The effort of prayer is often fruitless leaving one feeling foresaken and abandoned. It seems to most of us a true spiritual experience is  necessary to find peace and  success in life, a possibility that is usually so far away. Perhaps there is explanation for this debacle in the Biblical name of God himself as to why this cycle is seldom broken.

Jehovah or YHWH also known as the Tetragrammaton in the Old Testament of the Bible is used as a white-wash term that referred to the living god that dwelt inside many individuals. YHWH is also referred to as Satan or the devil by others who have access to the God within themselves. It all focuses on the Divine Blueprint and how it is transposed through the lens of an individual. When one high priest disagrees with another high priest's perception of the 'greater good', or Divine Blueprint, they'll refer to each other  as Satan. Please don’t choke in disgust at this interpretation, as it in no way belittles the Almighty God. In fact, when this concept is properly understood, it further strengthens the individual relationship with God.

The Greek word ‘Satan’ means “adversary”, and was used to title anyone in opposition to another. Jehovah frequently took this opposing position towards Jesus Christ. He, amongst others, remains guilty of fallible concepts that limit the Mind of divine power within the physical world.

Although Yahweh is recognized as the Creator of the physical world and physical form of man, Jehova is also recognized as the destroyer. This Tetragrammaton takes up two parts of the Trimurti, which is the Hindu form of the Holy Trinity. Yahweh is Creator as Brahma is, and Jehovah is Destroyer as Shiva is. He is the anthropomorphized concept of carnality and repeatedly acts as a conduit of, and in opposition to, the divine source.

Jehovah is the giver of the commandments to Moses. In ancient Hebrew: Enoki, Enki, Eyah, is “from heaven sent to earth” and was given the connotation in ancient Hebrew to also mean “I AM”. This is also referred to in the Bible as Yahweh, or Jehovah “the destroyer”; the “I AM”, or carnal and separate sense of self removed from the divine; requiring sacrifices to feed it because it is in fact the human body that requires food; declaring itself in the Old Testament as the highest God with no others above it because it is blind to spirit and the divine. In truth, we are told in the New Testament that we are not under any laws other than what we accept and give worship to through our will. Jehovah is the ruler of the physical world, and not inherently evil, as he is part of the Christian Holy Trinity. The quality of the concept Jehovah takes is purely subjective to the experience of an individual within the Creation.

Jehovah is also the ego, according to Freudian logic. Yet, Sigmund Freud takes a pathway to understanding by modifying the Holy Trinity to be parts of the physical mind, which is an absolute fallacy to spirituality. Freud introduced a concept that is guilty still of being materialistic. The Id, Ego, and Super Ego were supposed to be parallel with ancient Trinitarian systems. We learn in the Old Testament how this logic is brought about through the mythos of the Tower of Babel. The Tower of Babel was a concept of building a physical tower towards God. This conceptual tower was an amalgam of all the works of mankind. It comprised all the effort of thoughts, concepts, and teachings, and workings of mankind. It was an amalgam and an epitome of what man can forge within the Creation. The tower is now as it always was: built upon the many sciences and teachings of the carnal reality of mankind. It has no spiritual foundation and is doomed to crumble and scatter the minds of mankind, just as it continues to do today.

Believers in the New Testament of the Bible are called Christians. Modern Christianity is based on what is now called Gnosticism. However, early Christians didn’t refer to themselves as Gnostics, they were simply Christian. A Christian today is highly influenced by Roman Catholicism, an aberration of the original cause. The early Christians knew that the Holy Spirit will teach us all things, that we do not need a man to teach us. Organized religions that dabble in spirituality, our colleges that dabble in sciences and any construct outside the Mind that seeks God as a thing within Creation is comparable to that of the harlot that owns our hearts in the book of Revelation of the New Testament. The mythos of the New Testament portrays this fallacy as the Jezebel or Babylon the Great which rides the beast which is the physical emanation of our spiritual chakra system. The chakras represent churches within man that are ruled by 7 demons that must be cleansed and replaced by 7 angels of light via the savior’s grace; obtainable only by our consent to do so. The letters to the 7 churches of Asia in Revelations mirror Eastern traditional methods of cleansing the chakras and the body. It is a beautifully relevant myth with countless parallel tales.

This savior in the Bible is Christ; hence Christianity, but the concept he taught is ancient and reborn in our era in this way. It is very possible that Jesus the Christ is another real and physical incarnation of the Hindu Brahma, just as Vishnu and Krishna were, and possibly Hermes, Osiris, Mythra, Zoroaster, Pythagoras and countless others; physical beings teaching mystical truths through allegory of the mythos. The wisdom they intended is a true understanding, often referred to as Gnosis. It is a knowledge that cannot be transferred from person to person by any means within the Creation, so it is taught through the presentation of allegory and myth to spark the understanding within the individual. This perfection of the cornerstone of understanding within the Mind is the most pivotal concept that ancient Gnostics taught and were murdered for teaching. Those who seek to control others do not want this concept to be shared because it allows for true freedom and lack of dependencies upon the Creation. That’s why we require this ‘savior’. The opposition is where the term ‘Satan’ is used again to represent this control through deception concept. The details of the specifics of this ‘savior’ concept don’t actually matter enough to cause wars amongst mankind. The details have been altered and debated upon and usually changed on purpose by those purposefully causing deception. It doesn’t matter if these ‘savior’ types were real people, but they most likely were. What really matters is what they were all trying to teach us. This Gnosis, granted via the teachings of the savior, is what the carnal Mind opposes. Which is why, in Gnostic tradition, Jehovah takes the role of the demiurge and foolish god.

Original concepts of idles in mythology are frequently misinterpreted. For example: The Holy Trinity comprises of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, or Spirit. The different conceptual understanding of Ghost verse Spirit, which stems from Latin to English translation of the Bible and the difference between the words ‘santum’ vs ‘sanctus’. While ‘sanctum’ suggests spirit residing within the individual, ‘sanctus’ suggests spirit being an outside source. This is why the Catholic Church used the term ‘holy ghost’, because it spoke of the divinity being found within and ‘ghost’ at the time was used in English to define such and was synonymous with ‘sanctum’ which was used Biblically to describe the part of the Holy Trinity. ‘Sanctus’ is used in the Latin Bible to refer to displaced spirits and demons. It is unsure whether or not the recent change to ‘holy spirit’ was due to a purpose filled with deceit, or just because the English word ‘ghost’ suggests a personified spirit outside the self. The journey from ancient Hebrew Aramaic, to Greek, through Latin, to English has become a complete nightmare. Translating truth through the many Earthly and conceptual languages is incredibly difficult, which is why the mythos and initiation rituals of mysticism that aided in the teaching of Gnosis were invented in the first place.

To understand the part Jehovah takes in the Christian Holy Trinity, one must understand all these things. The conceptual understanding of the Old Testament god being both Creator and Destroyer, has sparked much confusion amongst the understanding of this Trinity; confusion that the Hindu Trimurti shares as well. Jesus Christ was a physical human, so he indeed was the son of man, so that he was also the son of Jehovah, the living god. Gnostics refer to Jehovah as the demiurge, or lesser god. He is as stated before to be carnal and the epitome of physicality, being both its beginning and its end. He being not unlike the Hindu gods Brahma and Shiva being the Creator and Destroyer, and again, is not inherently evil.

Jesus also referred to his father in heaven. This is an entirely different concept from the concept of Jehovah in the Old Testament, because Jesus’ father in heaven was noted as being perfect; a trait not belonging to the vengeful god of the Old Testament. It becomes clear that Jesus’ father in heaven is the divine source and True God of the Gnostics. This true God existed everywhere and nowhere, including in the hearts of all mankind. This Unknown God was thought by the Gnostics to have no physical form, or did it communicate to man directly. Jesus spoke of heaven to be the true church of God and to reside within the heart of man. The book of Enoch refers to this same concept as the girdle of heaven. This heaven and Unknown God is not unlike the golden egg of Hinduism called the Brahman. It is sort of a cosmic egg that holds the universe within it, and yet exists within the universe. It is basically a tesseract. A tesseract in the study of geometry is a four-dimensional analog of a cube, and is to the cube as a cube is to the square. This is the same teaching that sparked the concept of the new age Higher Self, the daemon, oversoul, or Guardian Angel; most of these concepts stemming from the ascension experience of Hermes Trismegistus in the Corpus Hermeticum. It is the eternal immortal spirit and part of man that exists beyond the carnal "I Am" of his individual self within the 3-dimensional Creation. It also helps explain Plato’s allegory of the cave (of which I will extrapolate upon later). This reference in geometry parallels and very well may explain the enigma of the Holy Trinity, the identity of the children of god, god’s chosen people, and many other references throughout the Bible and other works throughout history that are now well worthy of a reread.

It may just be that the word Jehovah was used in reference to any physical being who in of himself obtained Gnosis, and through such alignment became a divine being, harmonizing the concepts of the trinities within himself and yet portraying a very confusing role in history for the rest of us to understand. This would be because a physical being who obtains Gnosis then can basically become a god. They perform magic and can manifest objects within the Creation through act of will and act as one with the divine. Therefore the physical father of Jesus Christ could very well be another human being as the writer Josephus suggests it to be. It is likened to the achievement of Enoch in Genesis when he walked with God. It was thereafter referred to in Talmudic writings that Enoch became the Metatron which was a power above the angels of God. This is also something Jesus referred to about man having the power to command both angels and demons. It is a power granted through the understanding which is here so dubbed as: Gnosis.

The Hindi term Brahman has also been used to describe a person as well as cattle, not to be confused with Brahma the Creator. This word in Hinduism has been used, like the term Jehovah, to allow a member of the highest caste, or priesthood to be called Brahman. So we have a relative use of term overflow that suggests a physical human being could be referred to as Jehovah. As it is, most ancient cultures referred to their ruler as being God on Earth. It would not be unlikely that Roman Caesars wielding the caduceus rods of manipulation had undergone Gnosis, or at least were treated as such. This reality of a living god being in reference within the Bible to be an actual human being does not in any way lessen the quality of the writings. The concepts expressing the carnality of Jehovah are meant to be known.

Of course this was how the old world used to understand this concept. It could have been the same old stories told over and over again, aligning with the zodiacal amalgams of the stars, procession of the equinoxes and other cosmic forces, just to excuse divinely appointed rulers being mortal men. Every ruler would, and in fact did, have a great tale of triumph to tell akin to pulling a sword out of a stone; an intangible and inarguable appointment of forces that places one man over another. In this light, primae noctis would have been a blessing instead of a curse, imbuing those who participated in the ritual with the potential of a virgin birth and savior child; which would give the Nephilim of the Bible a very real origin story, and place in history and the world today.

Perhaps there is a reason why Hebrew ritual involves stating ‘HaShem’ when coming across the Tetragrammaton within the Torah. The same group of people that created the dreidel and continued to practice their faith through constant persecution have actually found a loophole in not worshipping the person sitting on a throne claiming godhood. ‘Shem’ was given the connotation in ancient Hebrew as someone who had ‘made a name for themselves’. It referred to the lineage of Shem, son of Noah. Shem was also known as Melchizedek which literally meant “king of righteousness”. Saying this instead of a name for the divine removes worship from it. Since ‘HaShem’ translates to “the name” it removes any authoritative title that may have been allocated to the person the text refers. It seems the makers of this tradition knew what they were doing when they replaced all the many names for god in the Torah with ‘HaShem’. The ‘Israelites’ seem to live up to their name sake as being “against the elites”.

Once the dots are connected we have a really big choice to make. As it seems, the story all spirituality tells us is one of men becoming gods on Earth. We have the choice now of believing in the possibility, and then connecting the dots throughout known history to decipher the haves and have-nots, or not believing in spirituality at all. It may be that Sigmund Freud was the one that deciphered the objective part of this ancient concept. Where the light is, and where the darkness dwells, becomes a reality of choice. Does one worship the cold hard Earth as an ultimate reality and know it to be physical, finite and existing as a tiny speck in the vastness of the universe? Or is there really something deeper in spirit that gives rise to it all? Either way, people find a way to be jerks and ruin the experience for the rest of us. It seems if spirit is a real thing, than those that have experienced Gnosis, or the spiritual ascension and connection with the higher power, they have the ability to rule over mankind for better or for worse. It’s either that or nihilism. There’s not really a middle ground there unless you want to keep the wool over your eyes. Even the atheist who practices scientism eventually can experience Gnosis when they realize all physical matter is light projected from another dimension.

I personally choose to believe in spirit and the supernatural. It is a choice I’ve made based on experiences I’ve had in life that cannot be explained otherwise. Miracles have occurred for me through prayer that have no world explanation. Diseases in my family have been eliminated even though doctors prescribed eminent death. As Arthur Conan Doyle put it, “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

This then further concludes through logical deduction that the concept of the True God, or Higher Self must then exist. However, believing in this fact blindly usually puts one in service to the god of this world, a power outside oneself that is nigh impossible to commune with when recognized as an outside source. This fallacy leads the uninitiated to educate themselves, build their towers of logic, and deduce that science answers all the enigmas of our physical world. This dead-end scientism is equivocal to nihilism. The deductive reasoning resolves in an atheistic mindset due to the hidden concepts of Gnosis. It is when one subscribes to chaos instead of understanding that consciousness permeates all.

Those that choose to dwell in this limited mindset surrender themselves to the current paradigm of the world. They are as prisoners in the allegory of Plato’s cave. This tale mirrors that of the geometry concept of the Tesseract. The allegory puts forth a theory concerning human perception. There being three prisoners in a cave tied to rocks, arms and legs bound, and head tied so that they can only look at the stone wall in front of them. They have been in this position since birth and never knew anything else. Behind them is fire; between them is a raised walkway. People that are outside the cave walk along the walkway carrying things on their head, including animals, plants, wood and stone. In the point of view of the prisoner, they only see the shadows and have never seen the real objects before. The prisoners instead believe the shadows to be what is ‘real’. The prisoners play a game of guessing which shadow will appear next. When one correctly guesses the others praise him and call him master. Eventually one of the prisoners escapes and leaves the cave. He is shocked at the world and struggles to believe it. He soon comes to realize that his former view of reality is wrong. He goes on a journey and discovers beauty and meaning, and learns that his former life and the guessing game they played to be useless. Later he returns to the cave to inform his once fellow prisoners of his findings. They do not believe him and threaten to kill him if he attempts to set them free.

This allegory accurately describes the struggle of one who has experienced Gnosis and their relationship with those who have not. Though it may be the desire to share this philosophical and spiritual truth with everyone, we quickly learn that it cannot be shared through the relaying of empirical evidence. It sadly becomes apparent that it comes down to a choice that every individual makes to free themselves. For those who have experienced Gnosis and have given up, or never tried helping others experience this truth, they find it very easy to rule over those who know it not. After all, what easier cattle could there be to heard than ones who enslave themselves? It would truly be a wonder if we were all to learn that within us resides an eternal spirit, imprisoned inside the allegorical cave of our own mind.

First Degree - Choosing to Know God - A Brief upon Gnosis

Enlightenment, Ascension, Samadhi, Apotheosis, the opening of the Third Eye, the Great Revelation and lifting of The Veil; these concepts may not be synonymous with the concept of Gnosis, but they share the same goal; that of achieving the epitome of spiritual understanding attainable during our time here on Earth. The pathways to such a feat are as numerous as the stars themselves, and vary indefinitely. To some it is acquired through isolation, by fasting for long periods of time, hiding from the world in a cave or just by the mere sitting in silence under a tree. Others seek it their whole lives and enroll themselves in as many schools of knowledge their minds can endure. It is a wisdom that cannot be taught, but only observed through experience. Yet, we try our hardest to teach this thing we all seek. We search for it through word and book, through school and song and all other methods of communicating with nature and with each other.  
Ancient teachings of mankind took a route towards spiritual Gnosis that included science as a part of religion. Academics, morality, and spirituality were all combined into the same mythic tales. These days all teachings are kept separate and instill completely different frames of mind that cause conflict with an individual’s beliefs.
In ancient times, and for those now brought up in religious life, the first teachings always include an almighty, all-powerful, Creator God and say that we owe our existence to Him. These are then followed by the teachings that man is a special creation, having more than any other form of Creation on Earth; that being of a soul and/or a spirit. We are taught that the soul has, or can have everlasting life and never dies. The physical body is shed upon death and returns to the Earth from whence it came. The soul then is released and continues on.
In ancient times this was the first lesson, properly instilled into the mind before the lessons in science that followed. Then came the laws of Creation, the infinite wisdom of God and the arrangement of the luminaries, the order of the universe. With this scientific knowledge man was enabled to grasp the wisdom and the great divine love of the Creator. The understanding it wrought brought a feeling of oneness with the Heavenly Father. The original sciences included in ancient myth were taught in a form so simple to man that even then in an uncultured state we could understand them. The concepts were stated as an absolute, without theorizing, and not a semblance of technology was used. It was plain and simple.
Today we are taught tedious stages of science; separate, of course, from any semblance of spirituality or divine sources. All scientific information is brought to our understanding with hard empirical evidence; evidence of experiences within the Creation that can be shared. We begin with a vague basic understanding and through our many years of growth we are progressed to build upon them with varied concepts, each more complicated and building upon the last. Slowly through our indoctrination the tower is built. We attempt throughout these sciences to grasp the mystery of the universe, yet through them it continues to remain a mystery. It is all presented as materially sourced and factual. Yet, softly we are informed that all these concepts route themselves deeply in theory, and the sciences brought to our classrooms throughout the decades are ever changing. Through this lack of foundation, the tower built from knowledge falls. Its' route towards Gnosis becomes collapsed and scattered.
These expiated teachings are presented as fact, but in the hearts of the student they are not truly understood and are beyond sound logic. We are left ever searching for further explanation; searching ever deeper down the rabbit hole for causes to our effects. To those who continue to search, the question is always asked: Why? The answer to which is: Because the ancient scientific garden has been choked up with the rank weeds of theory, technology, theology, misconceptions, inventions, capped with childish dreams which neither rhyme nor reason, and all of which are totally at variance with the true natural laws which govern throughout the universe.
This deplorable state of understanding has been recognized in all ages and is not unique to our modern times today. It is a stage in every person’s growth, and is epitomized by a commonly shared negative outlook of society as a whole: the ‘status quo’, the current state of the populous, cut off from Source through their own choice of desiring the state they are currently in, subject only to the physical world around them and not desiring or accepting of change except for that which makes their situation subjectively grander. These are those that worship mammon, or for lack of a better word: Materialists. It is an unfortunate state we all are guilty of. There is a thin veil of understanding that must be pierced to perceive what propagates this materialistic view. Sadly, only few can grasp the true concepts of spirituality and Creation. It is not something that can simply be taught; and even when we come to realization, we so easily forget again.
This deplorable state is brought about by two major factors:
One: The egotism of man, and his inordinate craving for publicity, wishing to be thought of as the pinnacle of the mountain of understanding. We forget that there is only one Great One. The only pinnacle man can really reach is the sublime honour of being one of His (or Its') selected messengers of conveying this knowledge of truth. Man forgets that he can only be a messenger, a conduit, and that is the highest honour that can be bestowed upon him.
Two: Man so easily turns from the worship of the Great One to the worship of mammon, and through this worship of mammon he continually professes the worship of the Great One. Through this false reckoning he deceives himself and those he teaches, and thus is in fact a false prophet. These are innocent errors in understanding which we all make, greater than those of the hogs that practice in slavery. It is far more of an error than just being a materialistic person and having the desire to acquire vast material gains and enslave fellow man. In fact, many who have experienced Gnosis choose to continue to benefit themselves from those that haven’t; instead of trying to aid all in achieving it themselves. It is the simple attribution of effect within the Creation to be propagated, in ultimate origin, from anything within the Creation itself, in lieu of The Divine Source; for truth of the natural law of the universe dictates that all effect within the Creation is ultimately emanated from the Divinity. This simple misconception we all become guilty of in every moment that we forget to be thankful to the Creator for all that He (It) maintains. As long as this misconception clouds the mind of any individual, peace cannot rest upon their heart.
Not down any one path can any man find the great school for learning of true science. For some, nature is the true science, for others it is found through technology, for others it is exclusive through religion; and in each of these categories is found a plethora of variances in understanding. In truth, all are fractals of the whole. One must dawn the coat of many colours to view the Creation in all its’ varied splendor. By acceptance of others’ beliefs, and the entertaining thereof, can we put ourselves in someone else’s shoes and see the world through their eyes; perceiving Creation empathically through another’s outlook and expand upon our own.
It is equivocal, whether the universe is beheld through sense perception as the content of an extroversive mystical experience, or as a content of mental images during a vision, or as an intellectual experience of ideas. Whichever may be chosen or experienced by an individual, conscious or subconscious subversion, both the universe and self are located in the mind of God, the Great One. The intellectual experience of the primacy of mind constitutes an ontological shift, a transcending of vision and a becoming of mind. This has been dubbed many things and is beyond the basic understanding of Gnosis, but it does not change the fact that it occurs regardless of whether or not it is known. It just changes the quality of the experience via subversion of universal progeny.
The knowing of this is the Gnosis for those who have received knowledge and taken it with wisdom. Once known it can be learned to be wielded with precision, as some have likened it to becoming God. It is an intellectual mystical union of Mind that contains the cosmos as its thoughts. The Great One is the Mind that is imminent throughout the cosmos. God is invisible and entirely visible. It is the spirit, or aether, that is the seen and unseen; all entangled within and without the individual and pivot upon it as its cornerstone.
The one who alone is un-begotten, without Gnosis, is also unimagined and invisible, but in presenting images of all things he is seen through all of them and in all of them. The lord, who is ungrudging, is seen through the entire cosmos. There is nothing in all the cosmos that he is not. He is himself the things that are and those that are not. Those that are he has made visible; those that are not he holds within him. What is bound on Earth is bound in Heaven, and what is loosed in Heaven is loosed on Earth.
Having attained unity with the Great One whose thought is the universe, one who has obtained Gnosis is presumably empowered to work magic by commanding his thoughts. Those who have not, and will not, wield it unknowingly in their subconscious, and mostly just allow themselves to be subject to the will of their own subconscious and also to the will of others.
Nothing within the Creation is written in stone; or rather, it is not permanent. It can all wither away, burn up, disappear, be replaced with an entirely different reality without our realization. This can be said, but it is never properly understood until one willingly accepts the journey towards Gnosis. Logically, the pathway must vary for every individual, since the created world itself is in truth a virtual sandbox laid bare before us, and appears differently to us all. Perception is everything. Thought is reality, the physical is the illusion. As above, so below. It is this concept that is presented in a plethora of forms through all religion and spirituality, and it is never true until it is accepted.
This achievement of the epitome of spiritual understanding, this Gnosis, is not desirable to most people. It is not a requirement of everyone within their lifetime on Earth to obtain. We have that choice. We may perceive this life, and live it however we choose.

To each his own.
