Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: Simplicity

Simplicity

It is essential, it is indispensable, to develop cognitive creativity, because this brings true freedom of living to human beings; yet, it is impossible to attain the authentic faculty of profound critical analysis without comprehension.

Teachers of schools, colleges, and universities must guide their students along the path of cognitive self-criticism.

So far, in our former chapter, we widely studied the processes of envy; sequentially, if we want to terminate all of the shades of jealousy—whether this is religious or passionate jealousy, etc.—we must attain complete cognizance of what envy really is, because only by comprehending in depth and in an intimate manner the infinite processes of envy can we be done with all types of jealousy.

 

Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: Assassination

Assassination

Without a doubt, it is evident that to kill is the most destructive and most corrupt act known in this world.

The worst form of assassination consists in destroying the life of our fellowman.

Dreadfully horrible is the hunter who with his shotgun assassinates the innocent creatures of the forest; however, the one who assassinates a human being is a thousand times more monstrous, a thousand times more abominable.

Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: Peace

Peace

Peace cannot emerge from the mind because it is not of the mind. Peace is the delectable perfume of the tranquil heart.

Peace is not a matter of projections, international police, United Nations, League of Nations, international treaties, or invading armies that fight in the name of peace.

If we really want true peace we must learn how to live like a guard in time of war—always alert and vigilant, with a quick and flexible mind—because peace is not a matter of romantic fantasies or beautiful daydreams.

If we do not learn how to live in a state of alertness from moment to moment, then the path that leads to peace becomes too narrow, impossible; thus, after becoming extremely difficult, it finally ends at a dead end alley.

Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: The Truth

The Truth

This Via Crucis that is our miserable existence begins in infancy and youth with mental disorders due to intimate family tragedies, difficulties at home and at school, etc.

It is clear that during childhood and youth all these problems do not manage to really affect us—with few exceptions—in such a profound manner; however, when we become adults we start questioning: “Who am I? Where do I come from? Why do I have to suffer? What is the purpose of our existence?” etc.  

On the path of life we all have asked ourselves these questions. We all have wanted at sometime to investigate, inquire, find out the “why” of so many sorrows, troubles, struggles, and sufferings, yet unfortunately, we always seem to end up caged within some theory, or within some opinion, or within some belief, or within what the neighbor stated, or within what some decrepit old fogy told us, etc.  

Fundamentals of Gnostic Education: Intelligence

Intelligence

We have been able to verify that many teachers of history in the Western world often scoff at the Buddha, Confucius, Mohammed, Hermes, Quetzalcoatl, Moses, Krishna, etc.

Shamefully, we have also been able to verify until complete satiation the sarcasm, the mockery, the irony hurled by teachers against ancient religions, against the gods, against mythology, etc. Precisely, all of this constitute definite signs of a lack of intelligence.

In schools, colleges, and universities, religious topics ought to be approached with more respect, with a great sense of veneration, with true creative intelligence.
