10966Re: Pursuit of gnosis (GNOSIS and Salvation)
- Apr 11, 2005Hello Serenity, welcome to the group. You state....
>>>"I know that I am blending philosophies, but I am a rather wholisticindividual and believe in all forms of worship being equally
respected by the Creator."<<<
Of course, if ecclecticism works for you then run with it. However, I
do need to point something out to you. This group is not like other
groups that have a more open focus. It is not that those open focuses
are not good for what they do, but sometimes there needs to be a place
to deal with much more specific and detailed topics. For that reason,
we only deal with traditional Gnosticism here. I am personally very
interested in Kundalini myself, but I don't really talk about it here
since it isn't the topic.
By the same token, in this group we define "Gnosis" in a different way
from what has become popular for the general reader. In this group we
try to stick to traditional Gnostic meanings for words like this.
Lastly, I would point out that traditional Gnostics don't respect
the "creator" much, and sometimes call him by names like "Fool"
or "Blind God". So, what the "Creator" respects is not something that
the historical Gnostics much cared to consider.
However, there are not many places on the net where you can get as
much accurate info concerning historical Gnosticism as you can here.
If you find that subject interesting, then this is the place to
discuss it for sure.
