Gnosis Key West | SELF KNOWLEDGE


April 04, 2013

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.
