Gnostic Mysticism

Thomas said to him, "Master, I am incapable of saying what you are like."
Jesus said, "I am not your master, because you have drunk and have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring that I have given out." - The Gospel of Thomas

This is no kind of drama video. I'm not interested in ideology, but I am interested in entities, and I sincerely wish every entity associated with this scandal, even if only tangentially, the very best, but unrestrained egotism cannot make the world a better place.

"Anyone whom you forgive, I also forgive. Indeed, what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sake in the presence of Christ, so that we would not be outwitted by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes." - 2 Corinthians 2:10,11

If the Evil One speaks to us in desire and the Demiurge speaks to us in thought, then how does the Word speak to us if not through the knowing of the conscience? Contrary to popular belief, the information received through higher gifts like psychic ability would come through the gnosis of conscience, not the constructs of mind.

If you understand what I'm saying here, then you'll understand why it is that the apostle Paul said that we would stand in judgement of even the angels of heaven.

Demons of the mind will whisper to instill doubt. You can take the philosophical approach and defend yourself with justifications, or you can take the mystic approach and recognise that, guilty or not, you were never the accused in the first place. You cannot stand accused.

Only God knows your true worth and purpose, and so only by surrendering your life to the divine can you possibly discover either. God's power is perfected in weakness.

I won't give my usual intro and outro statements from now on because I know that some people like to watch these videos using my YouTube playlists and those statements would quickly become tiresome when listening to these short videos.

I've been threatening to start producing short videos for some time now. There's enough waffling in the world as it is. Truth and peace are found in silence. I've restricted myself to the Twitter limit of two minutes and twenty seconds. We'll see how it goes.

If someone expects demonic activity to manifest as dramatic phenomenon, they're probably losing the battle to the real demons every single day.

For someone to receive the benefits of the truth, there must be the capacity to hear it, the willingness to follow it, and the perseverance to persist in it. You cannot distribute quick-fixes to those who otherwise have no interest in spiritual matters because they operate from a fundamental misunderstanding concerning reality.

I haven't made a video on these issues before, so I might as well put across my own view on them at least once. I should also have mentioned that preserving sexual energy for spiritual purposes was also a big reason for celibacy. I'll talk about this more in the future.

A simple illustration to show why evil is regarded as illusory and a product of ignorance within Gnosticism. The Manicheans Gnostics were an exception to this, as their system, being influenced by Zoroastrianism, presented a constant struggle between an equally powerful light and darkness.

I realise that a gradient of gray and red would work better, but my graphic design skills are limited. This video is meant to stop abruptly at the end as I fell at the last hurdle and introduced an unnecessary issue in the final minutes, and so I just cut those minutes away.

Memes are best enjoyed if you aren't emotionally invested in the object of their derision. The Honkler meme is a chaotic response to a disordered world, but it's a world that is disordered by its very nature due to the flaws inherent in matter and especially in personhood.

An explanation as to why the Gnostics identified ignorance as the root of all evil.

I said that I might record it when the time came—a revenge battle nearly three decades in the making. I highly recommend watching in HD and in at least YouTube's "Theatre mode".
SPOILER HINDSIGHT COMMENTARY:

Although I didn't see it while fighting the battle, Andrew had hidden Night Goblin Squid Hoppers in the woods on the right of my deployment zone and once our lines were engaged he sent them out and flanked of all my engaged units, causing them to quickly break and flee. I should've been more aware of what was happening on the battlefield at large as opposed to being so focused on controlling my Star Dragon and casting largely ineffectual spells. It may have been a "Close Battle", but I did not perform well. I underestimated both Andrew and his goblins. Characteristic High Elf arrogance.

"Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator." - Colossians 3:9,10

"When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will understand that it is you who are the sons of the Living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty, and you are that poverty." - The Gospel of Thomas, Saying 3

The Master said, "It is the spirit who gives life, the flesh is no use at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life."
When we acknowledge what the true source of goodness is, our level of consciousness will undergo a radical shift.
