“When religion becomes artificial, art has a duty to rescue it. Art can show that the symbols which religions would have us believe literally true are actually figurative.
Art can idealize those symbols, and so reveal the profound truths they contain.” – Richard Wagner

Open to all. Gnosis. -The Study of Oneself. Relaxation, and navigating our lives through
The term Gnosis is the root of the word “knowledge”. However, it is not simply knowledge of an intellectual type. The word Gnosis has been used by varying philosophical and mystical groups throughout history, but it really refers to the Truth beyond philosophy, dogma, personality, and theory. Gnosis is “direct, experiential knowledge of the divine”, or in other words, knowing oneself.
To have Gnosis is to have one’s own experience of the truth. Fire burns, gravity exists; these are truths that cannot be denied once experienced. Likewise, Gnosis is not built from spiritual fantasy; it is the platform from which we can see beyond our fantasy.
Gnosis can be expressed in theories and concepts, but it is neither the theory nor the concept. Gnosis is the both the intimate experience of the Truth, along with the path that takes us there.This is the same path taught by the awakened masters of all great traditions.
There is Gnosis throughout the Christian Gospels and also in the Buddhist doctrine, in the Tantric Buddhism from Tibet, in the Zen Buddhism
from Japan, in the Chan Buddhism of China, and in the Taoist teachings. Hinduism is rich with Gnostic stories, symbols and guidance.
The wisdom of Kabbalah, the Tree of Life, is absolutely Gnostic. Gnosis is found within the mysteries of Islam, in the Whirling Dervishes of Sufism, and in the Egyptian, Persian, Chaldean, Pythagorean, Greek, Aztec, Mayan, and Incan traditions.
Gnosis has been present and available under many names and with many faces, but the profound realization of this Gnosis, at this point of humanity, is lacking. Amongst other factors, this is due to confusion regarding the interpretation of universal principals within the traditions of our modern religions. With this lack of clarity, how could there be revelation amongst our masses?
Yet, the cosmic principles are always there, they always remain the same. It is within these ageless principals that we may find the keys for the awakening of the consciousness, for the ultimate self-realization.
Dont be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.

The chief enemy of creativity is good sense.

To answer seriously the three great questions of eternal philosophy: Who are we? Where do we come from? and Where are we going? is a primary necessity of the human being of all times. Since the most ancient times man sought the answer these questions that troubled him. Yearning to find what was he before he was born, what is he now and what will he be after he will leave this world – or in other words where do we come from, why are we here, where are we going?.
The honest seeker began wisely to look for answers inside, to know oneself. As a proof in this way, on the front piece of the Temple of Apollo in Delphi an old axiom says: ‘Homo nosce te ipsum’ (in greek Gnothi Seauton, attributed to the first greek philosopher Thales) and it means ‘Man, know thyself’ the continue being‘and thus thou shall know the universe and the gods’. We notice here the word knowledge. Nevertheless we talk about a superior knowledge, transcendental, a knowledge of what is truly Divine.
“Certainly God The Mother is the Foundation of this great Creation. We should identify ourselves, each time more and more, with the Eternal Feminine”
