Gnosis is Greek for knowledge, and is the same as the Hebrew Daath, which is the Tree of Knowledge. This knowledge is beyond belief or theory: it is direct knowing through experience.




"In Century the Twentieth some disciple more informed, and far better fitted, may be sent by the Masters of Wisdom to give final and irrefutable proofs that there exists a Science called Gupta-Vidya; and that, like the once-mysterious sources of the Nile, the source of all religions and philosophies now known to the world has been for many ages forgotten and lost to men, but is at last found." - Helena Petrovna Blavatsky



"The Adorable God Kristos (Christ) comes from archaic cults to the Fire-God. The letters P (Pyre) and X (Cross) are the hieroglyph which represent the generation of the Sacred Fire.

Christ was worshipped in the mysteries of Mithra, Apollo, Aphrodite, Jupiter, Janus, Vesta, Bacchus, Astarte, Demeter, Quetzalcoatl, etc.

The Christic principle has never been absent from any religion. All religions are one. Religion is as inherent to life as humidity is to water. The Great Cosmic Universal Religion becomes modified into thousands of religious forms. Thus, the priests from all religious forms are completely identifiable with one another through the fundamental principles of the Great Cosmic Universal Religion.

Therefore, a basic difference between the Mohammedan priest and the Jewish priest, or between the Pagan priest and the legitimate Christian one, does not exist. Religion is one. Religion is unique and absolutely universal. The ceremonies of the Shinto priest of Japan or of the Mongol Lamas are similar to those ceremonies of the shamans and sorcerers from Africa and Oceania.

When a religious form degenerates, it disappears; yet, the universal life creates new religious forms in order to replace it." - Samael Aun Weor



Gnosis and The Path

"Awakening, the path to awaken our consciousness, to become a fully developed being, a fully developed person, is a very exact and very scientific path. Like Master Jesus said,


Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.

For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. - Matthew 7:13



One path. Not many paths. The Path of the Razor's edge is a straight path, and there is only one such road. It has been described by many different maps, each with a different style or language, but the path is always the same. Unfortunately for us, however, the available maps have degenerated and can lead us on the wrong roads.
"




"The Gnostic must not be a fanatic. We must study everything to reject the useless and accept the useful. Gnosis is not against any religion, school, order or sect. We have fought for the moral purification of many religions, schools, orders and sects. We have never been against any religion, school or sect. We know that humanity is divided into groups and that each group needs its own system of particular instruction. All religions, schools, orders and sects are precious pearls that are strung on the golden thread of divinity. We must build churches in order to serve all religions without disinction of names or creeds. Truly, all religions are ineffable and divine. All religions, schools, orders and sects are necessary. Religious jealousy is equivilant to passionate jealousy. It is a shame to be religiously jealous. The Gnostic brother or sister must overcome such jealousy for it is a very vulgar passion. The Gnostic movement is structured for people of all religions, schools, orders and sects." - The Yellow Book by Samael Aun Weor



"Nanak, the founding Master of the Sikh Religion in the sacred land of the Vedas, taught the path of the Heart. Nanak taught fraternity among all Religions, Schools, sects, etc. When we attack all Religions or any Religion in particular, we commit the crime of violating the Law of the Heart. In the Heart Temple, there is a place for all religions, sects, orders, etc. All Religions are precious pearls strung on the golden thread of the Divinity. Our Gnostic Movement is made up by people of all religions, schools, sects, spiritual societies, etc. In the Heart Temple there is place for all religions, for all worships. Jesus said: “In loving one another thou shalt prove that thou art my disciples.” The Sikh Scriptures, like those of every religion, are really ineffable." - The Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology

It is all very simple, Religion has made it complicated and impossible to decipher. Within us is, almost to a point of genetic engrainment, the concepts of right and wrong. All religions reflect this and must reflect this in order to survive. The human nature will eventually rebel against alterior precepts given the choice to do so.
Organized religion, not the adoration and worship of God as the source of love, compassion and creation, is the opiate and final controller of the masses.
Governments and Kings would find it very difficult to produce a large number of suicide bombers. You need divine aquiessence for that type of thing. Are you following me?
No war has ever been successfully prosecuted without the army being fully convinced that they are on the side of God. How sad this statement is.
The leaders of the country have to show that they are on the right side and they need organized religion to do that.
Corporations need organized religion to promote the work ethic and, now days, to justify astronomical profits. The doctrine of prosperity that has swept christian fundementalism.
Do not be fooled. God is real. God is not a respector of persons. The formula for organized religion is not divinely inspired. It would more closely be politically and economically inspired.
Jesus did not say take dominion of the earth and make the most in my name. He did not say wage war on those that do not believe as you do.
Muhammed did not say those things either
Krishna say nothing of the kind.
Religions, all religions begin by stating that which is most obvious. the prophets or teachers actually say very little if you would examine, for yourselves, the scripts.
It is after those "prophets" die that the turmoil begins.
It isn't really complicated. When the prophet dies a vaccum is created. There is a rush, taking nearly a century to fill that vaccum with various interpretations of what the "master" said. These interpretations develop into sects. After much fighting between sects of interpretation, a general consenses is reached. A doctrine that a majority can find appealing is codified and proselytation begins.
that is why the religions have so much in common. The common thread was expedient. Everything had to ring true with what people inately felt already. Radical ideas are not welcomed except by the sword. Note the spanish incursion into South America, circa 1400-1600
