"This religion of reason could not be that of the multitude, who require fables, mysteries, definite hopes, and terrors, materially operating upon them. On that account the sacerdotal institution was established in the world.
Now the sacerdotal order is recruited by initiation. Religious forms perish when initiation ceases in the sanctuary either through being divulged, or by neglect and forgetfulness of sacred mysteries. (more…)
33rd Degree Sovereign Master of the Scottish Rite, Albert Pike had written in Morals and Dogma,“The trowel of the Templars is quadruple, and the triangular plates of it are arranged in the form of a cross, making the Kabalistic pantacle known by the name of the Cross of the East. The Knight of the East, and the Knight of the East and West, have in their titles secret allusions to the Templars of whom they were at first the successors. (more…)
Helena P. Blavatsky declared that although the Gnostics were destroyed, “the Gnosis, based on the secret science of sciences was never without its representatives in any age or country.” - Professor Wouter J. Hanegraaff
"Gnosticism can be found in almost all religions, and as such, it can be viewed as more of an esoteric philosophy that unites people across various religions- though some people today claim to be Gnostics as a religion. For example, the ideas associated with a Gnostic Christian are fundamentally almost identical to a Buddha or Boddisatva in the Buddhist religion, Gnanis in Hinduism, an Arif in the Islamic tradition, and a “knower” in the Taoist tradition, and it is for this reason that it is believed that Gnosticsm had an influence on all of these religious philosophies as it spread between Egypt and Tibet, and likewise these other schools contributed to Gnostic doctrine." - Timothy Hogan
"Gnosticism is a school of thought originally developed in the ancient pagan world and championed by philosophers like Pythagoras, and later instrumental in the development of early Christianity, in which an initiate can attain a Gnosis – or direct knowledge of the divine. In fact, the word “Gnosis” means “knowledge” in Greek, and it was a divine knowledge that could be achieved through the study of nature, personal initiation, and divine revelation. (more…)
“In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." - George Orwell
When I look at the current state of media madness to what has been labeled fake media, it takes me back over 2,000 years in history to the original information battle that was waged between the Catholic Church and the various Gnostics sects of the day. The Church are who we can call the first leaders of a global mainstream media, and the Gnostics would be the true originators of alternative media. (more…)
The popular idea that a worrier is a thoughtful and conscientious citizen is false. The Egyptians realized this when they included worry among the cardinal sins. Do not confuse thoughtfulness and worry. The thoughtful person plans solutions, but the worrier merely dissolves in his own doubt. If you think straight, you will have less cause for worrying. The worrier not only suffers the same disaster many times, but undermines his health and annoys all others with whom he comes into contact. There are many things in this world that require thoughtful consideration, but there is really nothing to fear but fear. (more…)
"Just like positive science, this Gnosis is systematic; it is the same as the other knowledge in its systematic arrangement of the Cosmos, in its ensemble as well as in its smallest parts." - Boris Mouravieff
The quote below is from a college professor, Ioan Culianu who was murdered for his words, political views, and criticism of the Romanian government. Culianu was a Romanian living in exile in the U.S. where he taught a class on Gnosticism, the study of secret mystic sects at the University of Chicago Divinity School. The same school where he was shot in the head as he went to the restroom in a hit style murder that some say was typical KGB fashion.
In a European publication concerned with contemporary aspects of Gnosticism, Culianu writes: (more…)
