7953the nature of the true god / man is a true alien in this world !
- Jul 3, 2003Hi pcmvflag,
the nature of the "true God" remains undiscoverable. At least most
gnostic scriptures conclude this way, although many attributes are
given to the Supreme Being. I liked your attributes. Not going into
the detail, what I meant is that the true God is more human than the
demiurge at least, who has not shown any [particular appreciation for
humanity, starting with the "creation" to this very day, see
Terrorist attacks 9.11.
To the contrary, he crippled man from the very beginning. Thanks to
Sophia, men was able to stand up, shake off the dirt, and walk
straight. She helped humanity from many impediments. Orthodox say,
God gave man a free will and dominion over all creatures, and wisdom.
Therefore man builds freeways, does genetical research and
experiments, builds aeroplanes. How, I argued with the orthodox, is
then man destroying ultimately, what his God made in the first place?
God created lakes, forests etc. not freeways, nor were aeroplanes in
the hangars in the jungle with the pilot's manual. Sophia helps us
out of our misery. We are crippled and limited, therefore we need the
technology, which is a true sign of Gnosticism in our world.
Pursuing this thought, I arrived at the final conclusion: Man hunts
for aliens, but has not recognized that he is an alien himself in
this world. Man's works reveal him/her to be out of this world. The
demiurge created man from the mud, for his own purposes of
[precreation to capture and imprison souls. Sophia brings man into
competition with his own creator, the demiurge, and so the jealousy
battle goes on again.
It would be interesting for me to reflect now whom I met in my
experience, when I was assured victory and rewarded, but I dont
recall any particular images, nor radiant light. I hope it was not
For the "true God" is the ground of (any) being for me, the radiant
source of the emanation process, from which all originates and to
which all returns, in this world seen and beyond. Martin
