Hermeticism is an ancient philosopical tradition that emphasizes the importance of inner enlightenment or gnosis, rather than that of pure
rationalism or doctrinal faith.
Something that has also caught my eye and ear recently is Hermeticism.
It seems to be a philosophy I could agree with. It's as close of a connection of all the world religions into one without the messy unneeded details
that seperate them all.
The aim of Hermeticism, like Gnosticism, was the deification or rebirth of man through the knowledge (gnosis) of the one transcendent God, the
world, and humanity.
"Evolution never stopped when we grew thumbs.", something an inspirational man named Bill Hicks said. I believe that. We're still evolving into a
consciousness closer the God and closer to the earth. Good men throughout history have evolved themselves, in mind, but not body. Maybe through a
collective consciousness of spiritual experience can man finally evolve and lose the evil it's tattered along. Sorry, I got sidetracked.
Hermeticism invokes that same idea, subtly or not, that we control ourselves and commit holistic deeds and bad deeds accordingly to our minds.
My belief here, we are part of and in God, "As above, so below." We have the will to hate and the will to peace, conquering ourselves is our goal.
I've read too much philosophy, so that's all I can say. I don't want to put in good beliefs I can't completely share yet.
Sorry if there has been posts previously about this, I hadn't checked.
