Hi Rajinder, I guess your reply to my last post was off-list and not having a response in mind at the time... I deleted it. After pondering a bit... thissamuel1938

What this does is open up the spiritual channels to where they include so many options that it becomes the opposite of being Fundamentalist to one specific tradition, even that of the Gnostic texts themselves.
You get to a stage where you write your own myths and you see the same patterns of ideas in places you never looked at before, not just spiritual traditions like Kabbalah and
Tarot and Chakras, a world of scriptures open up, Buddhist sutras and Hindu upanishads, then we weave in ideas from modern films, from fiction stories, from a broadening scope of inputs and vehicles for expressing the same truths.
That is why "Neo-Gnostic" is not a good title for those who follow this path today. We are not reviving some ancient rituals and clinging to dogmatic assertions of how many archons it takes to screw up a kosmos.
We are living psychological experiments of what it means to pay attention to What Is and to learn how to direct connect in an intuitive way to ride on the synchronized patterns of how we all fit together. This is "Gnostic" in the purest sense, eclectic and fluid, empirical, forgetting more than learning, on a quest to see clearly what has been distorted by every spiritual tradition that has come before us, including that of the ancient Gnostics. - Tom Ragland
