Over at the Gnostic Insights podcast, I'm in the process of publically writing my next book. I'm going through all of the episodes thus far posted and refining and polishing the material, forming it into a single, cohesive narrative, and then recording each chapter as a new episode. It has been an interesting process, not only because I am reviewing all of my work of the past few years, but also because I am uncovering within myself new gnosis at the same time. It is a wonderfully toroidal process of going around the same material in overlapping loops, finding deeper and deeper gnosis. And, whereas the original Gnostic Gospel Illuminated was purposely written for utter simplicity, this new book is written with full accompanying explanations and examples that provide the whys and wherefores. I'm also posting a transcript of each episode on the Gnostic Insights website, so listeners can read along if they desire. If you haven't yet listened to the Gnostic Insights podcast, you can listen to it at the website or on most podcast hosting apps.
Here is a snippet from last week's episode. You can reach the full episode by clicking here.
This gnosis is not an arbitrary fable. The Tripartite Tractate is more along the lines of a philosophy of science type of book rather than a book of myths. It proposes a certain starting hypothesis—that there is an original consciousness we call the Father—and it proceeds logically from that starting proposition through all the steps necessary to reach our observable universe. It is an inherently cogent argument that begins with the Father and winds up with us as living creatures in relationship with that consciousness. It “makes sense.” That is why understanding is more important here than memorization.
I believe that we all have this gnosis written within our Self that comes directly from the Father, the Son, and the Fullness of God, so awakening to this gnosis is more a matter of remembering rather than learning. Your willingness to listen with an open heart and mind is all that is required to achieve this remembrance because it is the will of the Father and the Fullness that you remember them. There is no other hidden knowledge to search out or genealogies to memorize, lodges to join, or secret rituals that must be performed; you only need to remember the gnosis that is inherent within you. It is my hope that, as you listen to this information and meditate upon it, you will come to understand the origins of our universe and our place in it. The gnostic faith is not blind faith but reasonable faith, and we were created as reasonable beings.
