That God’s name is Abraxas

“The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. Who would be born must first destroy a world. The bird flies to God. That God's name is Abraxas.” - Herman Hesse

There are more fake gurus and false teachers in this world than the number of stars in the visible universe

"There are more fake gurus and false teachers in this world than the number of stars in the visible universe. Don’t confuse power-driven, self-centered people with true mentors. A genuine spiritual master will not direct your attention to himself or herself and will not expect absolute obedience or utter admiration from you, but instead will help you to appreciate and admire your inner self. True mentors are as transparent as glass. They let the light of G-d pass through them." - Shams of Tabriz: The lights of Kabbalah

Each man must necessarily have the right to judge of their truth for himself

No man or body of men can be infallible, and authorized to decide what other men shall believe, as to any tenet of faith. Except to those who first receive it, every religion and the truth of all inspired writings depend on human testimony and internal evidences, to be judged of by Reason and the wise analogies of Faith. Each man must necessarily have the right to judge of their truth for himself; because no one man can have any higher or better right to judge than another of equal information and intelligence (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1871, p. 29).

False prophets lead astray the unweary

"Between the modern truth seeker and the goal to which he aspires are numerous pitfalls and dilemmas. False prophets lead astray the unwary, conflicting doctrines perplex the uninformed, and a host of doubts and uncertainties weaken the resolution." - Manly P. Hall


Attis: Born at midnight on the 24th day of December

33rd Degree Freemason Manly P. Hall had said in The Secret Teachings of all Ages: "There existed a remarkable school of religious philosophy which centered around the life and untimely fate of another Savior-God known as Atys, or Attis, by many considered synonymous with Adonis. This deity was born at midnight on the 24th day of December. Of his death there are two accounts. In one he was gored to death like Adonis; in the other he emasculated himself under a pine tree and there died. His body was taken to a cave by the Great Mother (Cybele), where it remained through the ages without decaying."

Jung’s “first love” among esoteric systems was Gnosticism

"Jung's "first love" among esoteric systems was Gnosticism. From the earliest days of his scientific career until the time of his death, his dedication to the subject of Gnosticism was relentless.

As early as August, 1912, Jung intimated in a letter to Freud that he had an intuition that the essentially feminine-toned archaic wisdom of the Gnostics, symbolically called Sophia, was destined to re-enter modern Western culture by way of depth-psychology.

Subsequently, he stated to Barbara Hannah that when he discovered the writings of the ancient Gnostics, "I felt as if I had at last found a circle of friends who understood me."

By Stephan A. Hoeller - Gnosis: A Journal of Western Inner Traditions (Vol. 8, Summer 1988)

Culture comes from the word cult

"The world we see is manmade. Culture comes from the word cult. We live in a manmade cult of materiality and superficial nonsense. When you wake up and or become knowledgeable to the truth of the world, you can then separate yourself from the illusion and mass hysteria to see the world for what it truly is." - Moe the Gnostic Warrior
