So, in response to Tamahu's cliff hanging post, I jumped into Kabbalah and Gnostics over the weekend, and ended up learning half of the Hebrew
alphabet along the way. Regardless, from what i now understand, it is the Gnostic belief (regardless of which religion you choose to follow, alchemy,
hindu, buddism, etc) in order to build your inner energy you must refrain from having orgasms. Only then can the path back to heaven be
walked.............So is everyone on this thread following this chaste path?
Well this has left me with quite the mind screw. While I guess I can see some of the reasoning for this, and when diving into the actual letters of
the Torah, it seems compelling, if not crazy interesting.
However, this line of thinking contradicts the existentialist philosophy I have utilized the majority of my life, and I must disagree with the basic
premises the Gnostics use to proove their theory. IE, humans are disgusting polluted byproducts of gods light; all of our instincts are evil and
against gods will; the earth is a living hell and all of the pain is a byproduct of sex. So basically, Gnostics are masochistic, "whipping
themselves" for impure thoughts?
So if I were to take the Gnostic belief as true, then I would also have to acknowledge that I am being punished here in a living hell, likely to be
taken to the Eighth Sphere where my soul will be crushed up and reused for as astral soil, due to poor decision my ancestors made in some other
demension?(Or did I make the decision) But most importantly, if we were at one point adrogynous and perfect in the higher demensions, then why would
God seperate us from ourselves and create the sexes, which apparently was the root of the whole problem? If our goal is to "return to god' atop the
Tree of Life, wouldn't the goal be androgyny again? Wouldn't that contradict Gods will if he is the one that seperated us from ourselves in the
I know this probably isn't the forum for this, but I just needed to get it out there. It has been a long weekend.
