Default Re: Gnosis and Gnosticism

Again, thanks for your time!

Agreed; I'm pressed for time at the moment as well, but one thing is important for me to ackowledge in what you wrote
However, we should certainly be suspicious about people claiming to have this type of advancement and then committing evil or nefarious acts.
Hence, the Sufi saying: "A saint who thinks he is a saint is no longer a saint."

One should look for these qualities in people totally unexpected to have these qualities, and in totally unexpected places.
If one is looking for a "guru" or teacher in these matters at least it's clear where NOT to look, right? ;-)

We'll definately continue this discussion!

Truth, Beauty, Love
Three things are sacred to me: first Truth, and then, in its tracks, primordial prayer; Then virtue–nobility of soul which, in God walks on the path of beauty. Frithjof Schuon
