Me personally, I like MatrixProphet's angle.
Good and bad.... are like counterbalances. Why is Lucifer considered "the light bringer"? Is it that Lucifer directly brings seemingly great things
to you like comfort and love and a feeling of self-importance? Or is it that Lucifer rips all those things away from you.... so you are left
essentially bare, with only this "thing" that you are observing the horror and the beauty of it all.... and you have no good to seek comfort in, and
evil has become mundane..... what is left to know?
The only thing left to know is.... who is God? Is God good? Is God evil? Is God up there or down there or in some other spatial reality? What does God
want us to know about Him?
What is this? Who are you? The answer does not alleviate pain and suffering from experience. The answer does not turn you into some super-being with
superpowers. The answer simply puts all into perspective. Gnosis is not complicated, and it is not a religion. All you self proclaimed "Gnostics"
are floating in your own private sea over there, but be rest assured....the sea and the ocean are one. You see borders, and you mistake it for
The truth is that you cannot ever transcend matter. There is no existence which is denser or higher or lower. There is no "good" or "bad". There
is no "us" VS "them". There is only ONE! All else is an illusion of the one. "We" are God. Material existence is God. Spectral, etherial,
spiritual existence.... all of these vague and meaningless terms are God. Anything outside of any of these terms is God.
You cannot kill God. You cannot pinpoint which God is true, or which God is false, you cannot know right and wrong. You cannot judge. In reality, all
we are MEANT to do with this existence, no matter what color of the spectrum it is or was or will be, is be it. Don't question it too much. Just
accept what is in your heart... even if what is in your heart is considered "evil" or "crazy" or "wrong" to everyone except you.... the heart
finds a way because it is the way. Each facet is interconnected in this illusion called existence, and each facet is equally as important. The
illusion is not good nor evil. It is just something to experience.... and all facets are there to be experienced in all ways.
If somebody kills your entire family... give thanks. If someone gives you a meal in a time of food shortage, give thanks. If someone rapes and
pillages a nation in the name of freedom and justice, give thanks. If a baby is born, give thanks. If a baby dies, give thanks. If anything.... give
thanks. Appreciate it all, my friends. Let it all be. Let your personality play out exactly how it will.... let your physical and mental struggles
become.... let it unfold.
It happens without force, without effort. Things present themselves when the order dictates... and your job as an "I am" is to receive these things,
whatever they may be...in whatever way you receive them, you are receiving them regardless. It is all a gift, even the worst possible things you could
imagine. Give thanks for it.
This is the gnosis. To understand. Not to play along with beliefs in understanding or put things on pedestals higher or lower than one's self. I
don't preach in my normal life. I doubt anybody would recognize this writing as being related to the guy they would see typing it. I doubt even if I
spoke, that my actions and my words would mesh in the eyes of the people.... but what is far more important is that the gnosis isn't an ac tion, a
belief, or a way of life. It is ALL actions, beliefs, and ways of life... and even thee man who goes against all words he preaches should, once in a
while, be able to speak of it because it is within his/her/its own being that the gnosis lies.
The liar speaks the truth, the truth speaks lies, the sin is holy, the holy is sinful, the lover hates, the hater loves, the is isn't, and the isn't
I can't think of any number of words spoken over any stretch of time or space that could galvanize truth into the eyes of the blind....
It is something that exists regardless of your thoughts. Those who seek to destroy it.... perhaps they don't understand fully... but I doubt this
world would exist without the persistence of ignorance. I give thanks to that.
"Before enlightenment, go to bar and get very drunk. After enlightenment, go to bar and get very drunk."
If you speak of understanding as though you understand, then you don't understand. As you can see, I speak very vaguely about "God" and
"understanding" and I don't give specifics into what this understanding is, what God is, why killing God is ridiculous, yada yada.... because I
understand that words cannot reflect this understanding. I can only say that.... at some point on your journey, you will understand.... and when you
know all there is to know, you will realize why it has been that you never understood before.... and the whole cycle will repeat.
There is no eternal "God". This vagueness we refer to as "God" is constantly changing.
Perhaps what this sect of Gnosticism as an ideological branch is referring to
is civilization. I believe one of my Satanist friends once said that Satanism is actually about killing the material "God" of humans.... which is
civilization and culture and society and all pre-conceptions about the permanence of reality.
Satanism just takes this lesson teaching to a very uncomfortable extreme.
Buddhism, in contrast.... is as effective of a tool in showing impermanence, oneness, natural order, the nature of consciousness/reality as
Satanism.... but I guess could just be called a much kinder and more peaceful approach.
Gnostic Satanism uses masochism and sadism.... the material/physical force... to try and transcend and "destroy" materialism, or "God" in the eyes
of many.... and my personal opinion is that Satanic Gnosticism as an ideological tool of eventual transcendence is a very very very inefficient method
which requires lifetimes and lifetimes of being caught in the darker shades of existence in order to truly transcend.....
That, I do not agree with. We, as a world, are not in harmony with that method of transcendence. You can kill your Gods much more effectively through
compassion, reason, and open-mindedness. No need to cause an imbalance and destroy a world by adding an excess of unneeded pain and suffering. No need
to waste more on teaching a lesson than the lesson is worth.
