Quotes

"As a race we still live in the feelings and emotions of the animal-soul state, and at the same time, in the selfishness and mental values of the human-soul state. From all of these conditions in our oversoul, we, respectively, abstract that which we call the personality. This abstraction is that which is called a person and each for himself feels and thinks that this is what he 'is,' what he calls me, myself. Here faith becomes the only resource when all else has failed. In these times, faith supports one through the bewilderments and difficulties that beset him on every side and it continues to do so while he is working out his destiny. He must take each step on the path of progress and attainment, but the power of faith will walk with him and safeguard him in each step."

"Faith is an ethereal power which, if cultivated, becomes love, the most powerful force in the universe, the sattvic quality in all substance. Without it there would be no awareness of substance, the body of the Great Mother! Like the Mother whose body it is, it permeates all thought; without it there would literally be nothing to think about. It is not only the life principle of all 'things,' it even precedes and creates life itself. Faith in its ethereal essence is life."

"If you are losing your faith, or are in danger of doing so, it is of the greatest moment and importance that you re-establish it. When you awaken each morning, begin the day with a silent prayer to the great Power which is your Being, and to the great Elder Brothers of our race, that you may be worthy of establishing contact with that Self and with those who have attained identity with IT."

"Resolve deep within you that your faith this day shall be deeper, stronger and more abiding than ever before. Mean it so profoundly that you shall feel in your inmost consciousness the realization of its truth as a living reality."

The Gnostic Bible: Revised and Expanded Edition
$34.95
$17.32 new/used

Gnosticism was a wide-ranging religious movement of the first millennium CE?with earlier antecedents and later flourishings?whose adherents sought salvation through knowledge and personal religious experience. Gnostic writings offer striking perspectives on both early Christian and non-Christian thought. For example, some gnostic texts suggest that god should be celebrated as both mother and father, and that self-knowledge is the supreme path to the divine. Only in the past fifty years has it become clear how far the gnostic influence spread in ancient and medieval religions?and what a marvelous body of scriptures it produced.

The selections gathered here, in poetic, readable translation, represent Jewish, Christian, Hermetic, Mandaean, Manichaean, Islamic, and Cathar expressions of gnostic spirituality. Their regions of origin include Egypt, the Greco-Roman world, the Middle East, Syria, Iraq, China, and France. Also included are introductions, notes, an extensive glossary, and a wealth of suggestions for further reading.

The Gnostic Gospels of Jesus: The Definitive Collection of Mystical Gospels and Secret Books about Jesus of Nazareth
by Marvin W. MeyerSearch for Marvin W. Meyer
$22.99
$12.51 new/used

For all those readers curious to read the actual texts of the Gnostic Gospels, here is the definitive collection of all the Gnostic Gospels and Gospel?like texts.

o Marvin Meyer, premier scholar of Gnostic and other Christian literature outside the New Testament, presents every Gnostic Gospel and Jesus text with a brilliant overall introduction, introductions to each text, and notes that explain everything the reader needs to know to understand the text. He includes his latest translations of not only the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, the Gospel of Mary, but other texts such as the Secret Book of John, which some scholars regard as the second part of the New Testament Gospel of John. The material is largely from the discovery at Nag Hammadi, freshly translated and introduced, but also includes texts found elsewhere. The texts, especially taken together, present an image of Jesus as the ultimate wisdom teacher, a kind of mysterious Jewish Zen master, who scandalized listeners by his radical egalitarianism (regarding women, slaves, the poor, the marginalized as of equal status, or more, with establishment male believers) and his insistence on living the message, spiritual experience, vs. outer observance only.

o For those wanting to learn more after reading The Da Vinci Code. This book provides the definitive next book for those looking for expert presentation of the alternative Gnostic stream of Christianity, in which there is no talk of crucifixion and Mary Magdalene is presented as the disciple that Jesus loved best. "Marv is one of the original secret gospels scholars who has done an enormous amount of work to bring these texts to light. All of his research on the Nag Hammadi texts is having an incredible impact on our knowledge of early Christian history??it is virtually redefining it." ??Dr. Elaine Pagels, Princeton University

Gnosis of the Cosmic Christ: A Gnostic Christian Kabbalah
by Tau MalachiSearch for Tau Malachi
$24.99
$3.79 new/used

The noble idea of the Christian Kabbalah is not so much the worship of Jesus Christ, but rather a conscious evolution toward a divine or super-humanity. In this regard, Christian Kabbalah is quite different from its Jewish roots, and Gnostic Christianity is very different from orthodox Christianity. Both are about experiencing God and evolving toward God, rather than just studying theology.

This groundbreaking work is the first to present the Christian Gnosis of the Kabbalah in a practical and deeply esoteric way. It takes the reader from the basic ideas of the Kabbalah to in-depth explorations of the Tree of Life. Gnostic legends and myths of the Holy Mother, St. Lazarus, St. Mary Magdalene, and Jesus are woven into the study of the Holy Sefirot as well as commentaries on the Ten Commandments and The Beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount.

The Gnostics: Myth, Ritual, and Diversity in Early Christianity
by David BrakkeSearch for David Brakke
$18.95
$11.95 new/used

Who were the Gnostics? And how did the Gnostic movement influence the development of Christianity in antiquity? Is it true that the Church rejected Gnosticism? This book offers an illuminating discussion of recent scholarly debates over the concept of ?Gnosticism? and the nature of early Christian diversity. Acknowledging that the category ?Gnosticism? is flawed and must be reformed, David Brakke argues for a more careful approach to gathering evidence for the ancient Christian movement known as the Gnostic school of thought. He shows how Gnostic myth and ritual addressed basic human concerns about alienation and meaning, offered a message of salvation in Jesus, and provided a way for people to regain knowledge of God, the ultimate source of their being.

Rather than depicting the Gnostics as heretics or as the losers in the fight to define Christianity, Brakke argues that the Gnostics participated in an ongoing reinvention of Christianity, in which other Christians not only rejected their ideas but also adapted and transformed them. This book will challenge scholars to think in news ways, but it also provides an accessible introduction to the Gnostics and their fellow early Christians.
