Re: Old vs new - What not to change?
Hmmmm. What would I want to change? What would I not change?
WHAT I WOULD NOT CHANGE
1) That the soul achieves perfection, or drawers nearer to
perfection after leaving the mortal body.
WHAT I WOULD CHANGE
2) I would eliminate those versions of Gnosticism that
invoke "Aeons" and other "principalities" that rule over
imaginary spheres of influence.
WHAT COULD BE CHANGED
3) The development of ritual and allegory that, as an
art form, attracts the heart and mind of the believer.
As you can see, this is completely a matter of innovation
