This is their plan. But there is a much bigger plan to save the world, as well as our children from these Global elitist. It is already in motion. Our job is to look within ourselves realize we are energetic beings, much more than what we appear to be. We base our perception of ourselves on what we see in the mirror. This physical perception is reinforced by society, our schools, and even our religions. There will be a reset, but not the way the Globalist are planning. It will reset our belief in God, Infinite Intelligence, that exists within us at all times. We are part of God. We are not separated from God. We don’t have to go looking for God because we already have the divine source within every molecule and atom of our being. In fact, none of us are truly separate from each other. It only appears that way. We are living in an illusion, although it’s hard to accept that from our limited perspective. Welcome to the great awakening.
The Essence of Evil: Sex with Children Has Become Big Business in America. Children, young girls, some as young as 9 years old, are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old. This is America’s dirty little secret and it is time to wake up and be part of saving the children.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Hierarchy was established to maintain status quo and control of the masses. We have been guided daily through a world wide messaging system, a worldwide system of control with the pretense of making it a better world, to protect us from war, disease and starvation.
It is well-documented that people’s memories are fallible; their perceptions are unreliable; and their view of the world, no matter how strongly believed, may well be contrary to the facts, even contrary to physical law. All of these aspects of the mind can be manipulated by experts, and are daily. First, consider that we have been programmed since birth. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we are and have become. Who controls these systems and why do they want control? The truth is so unbelievable that most will simply discard it!
Just in the last 100 years we had two world wars, with estimated deaths from 78-103 million that ended in 1945. Add another 8-10 million for the Korean and Vietnam wars; not counting the countless other battles and conflicts around the world. Then we look at the casualties of today’s societies around the world, unknowingly controlled by the corporations; owned by the few. With 95 % of the world wealth, they certainly have the means to continue their programming and indoctrination programs with bio, geo and hi-tech engineering.
Religion maybe one of the biggest assets as a control mechanism in the world with 84 percent of the world population affiliated with a religion. People go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places of worship to seeking answers. People born into a religion normally remain in that religion and perhaps one should ask themselves why. Is it our fear of death which we all will eventually face? There are a whole host of reasons for why we obey. These extend from a fear of punishment to truly believing in what we’re told to do. These reasons can be personal or very general, based on our natural human psychology. How much are we missing when follow dogmas, doctrines and disciplines that keep us within a system?
But it does not have to be that way. Most religious or spiritual beliefs cannot be empirically tested. That does not mean that the consequences of having religious faith or participating in religious life, or searching for the sacred cannot be studied to advanced ourselves.
We know that a growing body of psychological science is suggesting that spirituality is beneficial and those who attend religious services, or whom feel they are spiritual, experience lower levels of depression and anxiety; display signs of better health, such as lower blood pressure and fewer strokes; and say they generally feel healthier. There is even scientific evidence that we have the ability to heal ourselves. Dr Joe Dispenza, researcher and international lecturer, author, and educator healed himself after breaking 6 vertebrae in his back and being told he would never walk again. Through meditation, visualizations and his belief system, after nine and a half weeks after the accident, he got up and walked, without having any body cast or any surgeries.
Paracelsus, Physician and Philosopher said “The spirit is the master, imagination the tool, and the body the plastic material . . . The power of the imagination is a great factor in medicine. It may produce diseases in man and in animals, and it may cure them . .. Ills of the body may be cured by remedies or by the power of the spirit acting through the soul.” According to NASA Scientists we are born creative geniuses and the education system dumbs us down.
We live in a world at our figure tips, to explore to better understand the world we live in. Humanity will always be controlled by the few, unless we learn of the cosmic power that exists within each of us.
Albert Einstein was quoted as saying the religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.
My friend Tom and I keep having a discussion about people and tribalism. Tom has his PHD in Linguistics so he has some knowledge about people, language and its structure. He insist that it is most people’s’ instinct to belong to a tribe. In the past, the Native Americans lived in tribes and for the most part still do. It is said Jesus belonged to the tribe of Judah. Others go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, and mosques. We have families and jobs so that could also be considered tribal.
So I started to ask myself what is a tribe. I really do not have one, other than family and friends. But, then as I was writing this, I started thinking about you. Is spirituality tribal? What does tribal mean? In the Biblical sense, which was the original one in English, the Latin word translates Greek phyle “race or tribe of men, body of men united by ties of blood and descent, a clan”. Tribal in Latin can be interpreted as Generalis which means general, universal, tribal. Isn’t humanity a tribe united by body, mind and spirit? In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said, “If they say to you, ‘Where have you come from?’ say to them, ‘We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established [itself], and appeared in their image.’ We are all part of Infinite Intelligence and we are spiritual, so perhaps we could call it the Tribe of One.
Consider humanity as a tribe formed long ago with the potential of over 7 billion potential members. Individually they have created their own reality by their thoughts, emotions and actions but collectively, have unknowingly created our world. The Tribe of One requirements would simply be you have to be awake. Everyone is included, regardless of race or beliefs. The initiation is to know your true-self, be of service to others while learning the ways of love and wisdom.
As member of the Tribe of One, I find it liberating to break away from the status quo and bring collaboration and community into the world with no dogmas or doctrines. Love is the divine power. The Tribe of One purpose to spread and share love, compassion, gratitude, appreciation and be of service to others. It is not about judging, condemning or controlling others by instilling negative beliefs such as “burning in hell” “sin and repentance” ; even if you don’t believe or belong to the same group, as I do.
Divine Universal Infinite Intelligence radiating pure energy of love is our source. Within each of us is that divine spark or light waiting to be awaken. The spiritual path is unique for each person. The Law of One is a wonderful guide that has very deep spiritual teachings and has been said to be one of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus. Each tribal member is responsible for their own initiation by whatever means they deem appropriate.
We have been given special gifts to discover and apply them in our world today. Our job is to positively raise the planet vibration by applying these seven steps in our daily lives.
1. Love Infinite Intelligence
2. Love yourself
3. Love others as you love yourself
4. Love mother earth and nature.
5. Be of Service to others in your own way.
6. Meditation/Contemplation and pray to further your understanding and connection to the Infinite Intelligence.
7. Realize we are co-creators, and we create our lives with our thoughts, emotions and actions.
Know yourself, accept yourself and realize we are all one tribe with Infinite Intelligence. Our Journey will be different paths, different understandings but the progression is one. Our job is simple, to be the light, to spread love and compassion wherever we go. This short video provides some amazing facts about the human body. Hope you enjoy and welcome to the Tribe of One.
Have we forgotten our true nature? Perhaps one reason is we have been programmed since birth. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we are and who we become. It is a worldwide system of control to keep us occupied, and has become what we believe is normal.
Today, our world is in a confused and distorted state. Many begin to seek the truth, seeking answers to the age old questions of our identity. Most find this task difficult because society requires most to work at jobs 8 hours a day to pay for food, shelter and take care of families. We are constantly bombarded with corporate messaging creating fear. It becomes a confusing, distorted and arduous journey with many different paths, making it difficult to wake up spiritually and even more difficult to follow a spiritual path.
From a very young age we are programmed by our parents who were programed by their parents, and the vicious and seemly unbreakable cycle goes on and on. We go to schools, churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places where we are told how and what to think and how to believe and know God. Then we follow blindly for the rest of our lives, never seeking the truth about our true selves.
Who controls these systems and why do they want control? Perhaps it is to keep us from knowing our true nature, knowing our true self . Each of us have a higher power within, a divine light waiting to be awakened. We are all spiritual beings with a body and mind made of pure energy. Our thoughts create our reality through emotions and actions . Fear, control, greed, are just some negative emotions while love and helping others are some of the positive. We only think what we have been taught, and we are what we think!
Humanity has been in a deep sleep since our beginning and in order to begin the spiritual journey, one needs to wake up and ask the age old question, “Who am I”, why am I here” and “where am I going”.
In ancient times, there was a mystical poem about us called The Hymn of the Pearl. It may be one of the most foretelling Gnostic scriptures telling us of our true nature. The hymn is commonly interpreted as Gnostic view of the human condition; we are spirits lost in a world of matter and forgetful of our true origin. This state of affairs could change by a revelatory message delivered by a divine messenger. Perhaps the Law of One is that divine messenger.
Scott Mandelker, PHD, teacher and scholar said the Law of One material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”.
It started in 1981, when three members of the L/L research, Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot, Carla Rueckert, a devote Christian , and James McCarty, the sole survivor today, received a narrow band transmission from a Social memory complex named Ra. Ra stated,
“ We have watched your group. We have been called to your group, for you have a need for the diversity of experiences in channeling which go with a more intensive, or as you might call it, advanced approach to the system of studying the patterns of the illusions of your body, your mind, and your spirit, which you call seeking the truth. We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same.”
Many say it is a hoax but the complexity of the responses, which are so masterfully and skillfully crafted that no human could possibly have the knowledge or ability to create the responses. Others may say it is from the devil or satan. But in 1 John 4:1 of the New Testament says “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
The sessions open with, “I am Ra. I greet you in the love and the light of our Infinite Creator” and closes with, “I am Ra. I leave you in the glory and the peace of the One Creator. Rejoice in the love/light, and go forth in the power of the One Creator. In joy, we leave you. Adonai.”
We have free-will to determine for ourselves if the Law of One is the revelatory message delivered by a divine messenger. The contact lasted from January 1981 to March 15, 1984 and was recorded and documented. The transcript contains over 2360 questions and answers in 106 sessions with a scientific and metaphysical vocabulary with a searchable database available free to all.
For me the Law of One provides insight on something else that occurred 38 years earlier, when thirteen ancient books, called “codices,” containing over fifty texts, was discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. Known as the Nag Hammadi Scriptures, scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, 114 secret sayings of Jesus, and the Gospel of Truth and many more thought to be destroyed by early Christianity. The texts were translated in the 1970’s and are available today. I have been studying the Gospel of Thomas for years and it was difficult to understand until I began studying the Law of One. It helped with the interpretation of the 114 secret teachings of Jesus and other sacred text, including the Bible. It simply provides a different and refreshing new perspective on what we have been taught. Of course today, 2000 years later, many refuse to believe they may hold any value because they were not canonized by the Catholic Church, and actually labeling them heresy. But interestingly Father Francis Tiso, a very controversial Priest, talks about our divine spark in this video.
We have the world at our fingertips to explore new and exciting ways to discover, connect and love our Creator. It all starts by looking within and loving others as you love yourself, love all of nature, and service to others. Realize your thoughts, emotions and actions allow you to become more aware of your true nature. Meditation, contemplation and prayer are the gateway to understanding the higher self; connecting with Infinite Intelligence, our true nature.
The Gospel of Thomas, 114 sayings of Jesus, was believed by different scholars to have been written anywhere from 40 CE to 140 CE. Its theological perspective is markedly different from the biblical gospels in that the resurrection of Jesus plays no part in it, and it emphasizes a mystical understanding of Jesus’ teachings, rather than the sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist. During this time, there was a wide range of theoretical beliefs in “early christianity”, but it was so diverse in its beliefs, it would be better served to be called as “early christianities”. Early believers of Jesus held a wide view of beliefs. Some believed there were two or more gods, others insisted the world was created by an evil deity, while others argued that Jesus was not really human or not really divine; many maintained that Jesus was not really divine; some maintained that Jesus death had nothing to do with salvation and others claimed that he never actually died.
By the mid-2nd century the struggle for Christianity’s self-definition continued involving a battle between two differences. On one side were those seeking a fundamentally exoteric understanding of the religion, defined in terms of a closed canon of Scripture, a creed, and institutional authority. On the other side were those
categorized or labeled as Gnostics, later called heretics; understanding Jesus and his message in terms of a saving knowledge or gnosis, through meditation and enlightened teachers, mythical narratives, and spiritual advancement.
A heretic is a person who differs in opinion from established religious dogma
Orthodox means conforming to what is generally or traditionally accepted as right or true.
The Gospel of Thomas can be understood mystically such as saying 28. Jesus said, “I took my place in the midst of the world, and I appeared to them in flesh. I found all of them intoxicated; I found none of them thirsty. And my soul became afflicted for the sons of men, because they are blind in their hearts and do not have sight; for empty they came into the world, and empty too they seek to leave the world. But for the moment they are intoxicated. When they shake off their wine, then they will repent.”
Jesus may be saying he appeared in this world as human and the center of attention. But he found people asleep, blind and none were thirsty for the truth. The spiritual state of humanity, according to numerous gnostic texts, is stupefied with passion and drunkenness, blind to any spiritual understanding. Humanity came empty with their awareness and understanding of their consciousness, and who they really are. They can be saved if they seek the truth and and discover their true selves. Parallel sayings can be found in Luke 21:34-36 and John 1:14 and drunkenness is likened to ignorance of God in 1 Corinthians 15:34.
(29) Jesus said, “If the flesh came into being because of spirit, it is a wonder. But if spirit came into being because of the body, it is a wonder of wonders. Indeed, I am amazed at how this great wealth has made its home in this poverty.”
Perhaps Jesus meant it is very difficult for us to let go of the negative and destructive nature of the physical and material world and realize our true selves. Most of us do not realize the power within and simply disregard because of the material world. Perhaps because of our programing, it is difficult to understand our true nature and believe the material world is the real world. We all have a body, mind and spirit and according to the Gnostics we are divine sparks trapped in the body. Similar sayings can be found in Rom 8:1-8 and Gal 5:16-26.
In saying (30) Jesus said, “Where there are three gods, they are gods. Where there are two or one, I am with him.”
This is a complex saying with a similar saying found in Matthew 18:20. Consider that when three people are discussing the ways of the world, each believe they are right, leaving no room to discuss the true meaning of life because no one is listening. When there is only one or two, the heart is more open and accepting of Christ consciousness within each of us.
In saying (31) Jesus said, “No prophet is accepted in his own village; no physician heals those who know him.”
Two metaphors that are seen in everyday life. When we know someone, grow up with them as a child, watched their actions and perhaps indiscretions in immaturity, we normally will not put any credence in them as a prophet or physician. Only someone to whom we do not know and is a a mystery can we really believe they know what they are doing much like the blind leading the blind. We tend to look at what we identify as wisdom; successful people with money and the benchmark. Similar sayings can be found in Luke 4:16-30,Matt 13:53-58, John 4:43-45, and Mark 6:1-6.
(32) Jesus said, “A city being built on a high mountain and fortified cannot fall, nor can it be hidden.”
Enlightened ones tell us of the ways of the world such as Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu Kristina. Many more have left behind a treasure of wisdom to inform us of the physical and metaphysical world. Today the wisdom is available for anyone and cannot be hidden. A parallel saying can be found in Matt 5:14-16.
The four Gospels, Mark, Matthew, Luke and John were anonymously written and only later did Christians claim that they have been produced by the apostles. The Gospel of Mark probably dates from 66–70 CE, Matthew and Luke around 85–90 CE , and John 90–110 CE. Like the rest of the New Testament, they were written in Greek. One should consider that many of Gospels may have been taken from the Gospel of Thomas to create the New Testament and the church’s story of Jesus.
Connection to our source means a lifelong journey of seeking the truth and discovering who we are. Many go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places of worship to seek the truth. The realization is all religions have some truth, but no religion has all the truth. If blindly followed, religion will simply put you in a box; providing their teachings, belief systems and rituals. Religion may contain hidden truths, a higher truth that can be used as stepping stones for our spiritual journey . Perhaps that is why people are leaving religion, because they want to know the truth, they want to know God.
Being controlled by a particular belief system or religion appears to be negative energy. “Thou shall not” found in the 10 commandments in the Book of Exodus is dictating what we should or should not do. If humanity is inherently good, why do we have to be told not to kill or steal, doesn’t that take away our free will? There are even questions where did the Old Testament originated? We’ve all heard of the flood story in Genesis 6-8 and scholars believe that story was taken from the Gilgamesh Epic, the great literary classic of ancient Mesopotamia. There are many contradictions and questions regarding the content of the Old Testament, much like the New Testament.
English translations of the bible began in the Middle ages and there were two efforts where the Church insisted only using their translations.
John Wycliffe, 1320-1384, translated the Bible into english but the Church condemned him for this action and ordered his books be burned.
William Tyndale, 1484-1536, also translated the Bible into english. He was particularly disturbed by the fact that the common man was unable to read the Bible for himself. He was also condemned as a heretic, both by the Catholic Church and the newly established Church of England. Tyndale was forced to leave England for Germany, but eventually authorities caught up with him and he was burned at the stake in Belgium.
Our connection to God, the source, divine matrix or Infinite Intelligence, and many other descriptive names, is something most strive to understand and define. Personally, God is pure divine energy, love being the dominant source of vibration. The vibration that we are here to learn and balance with wisdom. Each of us are a spark of pure divine energy. As we learn how our thoughts, emotions and actions are part of our grand spiritual evolution, we are creating the world around us. Within each of us, exist a higher power waiting to be awakened. We all have the divine gift of discernment, the act or process of exhibitingkeeninsightandgoodjudgment. In its broadest sense, discernment is closely related to wisdom as an expression of God. Discernment alone can bring about a sense of balance between the worldly and the spiritual.
If only the world lived by one simple message our teachers were trying to tell us, we could change our world. Jesus told us to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” The Buddha said, ” the only way you can become free is to love those who hate you”. Krishna said, “to me, all beings are the same. I hate none, and no one is more dear to me than another, and The Taoist Sage Lao Tzu said, “Nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself”. By honoring and respecting others’ beliefs and religions, not only will it bring us closer together, but closer to our Creator.
With each new day, you can be the light of the world. Look within and know you are that divine spark waiting to be awakened. Realize you have God given gifts and can learn to master them. Above all, believe in yourself and your relationship with God through meditation, contemplation, prayer and being mindful during the day. Connecting and understanding ourselves and the Divine is a lifelong process with many obstacles. With love and compassion, believe in yourself and your ability to know and learn the truth.
Here we are again that very special day of the year when we honor our mothers. Our mothers made us who we are, how we think and how we act. Who and what we are today is very much based on the love of our mothers. I am not leaving out fathers, but this is mothers day. As of May 10, 2019 the National Retail Federation estimates that U.S. consumers will spend $23.6 billion on Mother’s Day this year. Last year, $14.3 billion, was spent on father’s day as a comparison.
Those numbers really do not depict the real picture how women have been treated throughout history. Granted progress has been made, but in reality, is it enough? Saudi Arabia implemented new rules in 2018 to allow women to obtain drivers without permission from their legal guardians nor will they need a male guardian in the car with them.
Women in Switzerland gained the right to vote in federal elections after a referendum in February 1971.
Egyptian women were guaranteed the right to vote and equality of opportunity was explicitly stated in the 1956 Egyptian constitution, forbidding gender-based discrimination. Labor laws were changed to ensure women’s standing in the work force and maternity leave was legally protected.
French women were disenfranchised at all levels before 1944. Women could vote from 1945, but only if literate. Restrictions on women’s suffrage were lifted in 1965.
In June 4, 1919 congress passed and later ratified on August 18, 1920, granting women the right to vote in the United States. These are just a few examples of women’s struggle in more recent times. Women have been suppressed by men for centuries and it started with religion. Unfortunately orthodox Christianity is not based on the teachings of Jesus, but on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, which are entirely different. There are a number of reasons for this, the foremost of which is that Jesus was deliberately sidestepped in favor of the alternative teachings of Peter and Paul, teachings which were thoroughly denounced by the Nazarene Church of Jesus and his brother James. Only by removing Jesus from the frontline could the Popes and cardinals reign supreme. When formally instituting Christianity as the state religion of Rome, Constantine declared that “he alone” was the true “Saviour Messiah”, not Jesus!.
The only way for the Roman High Church to restrain the heirs of Mary Magdalene was to discredit Mary herself and to deny her relationship with Jesus. As a result, the Church portrayed Mother Mary as a virgin, and Mary Magdalene as a whore, neither of which description was mentioned in any original Gospel.
The Church’s only salvation was to deny women altogether; to deny them not only rights to ecclesiastical office, but to deny them rights to any status in society. Hence, the Church declared that women were all heretics and sorceresses! In this, the bishops were aided by the words of Peter and Paul, and on the basis of their teachings the Roman High Church was enabled to become wholly sexist. In his Epistle to Timothy, Paul wrote: “I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp any authority over the man, but to be in silence.”
In the Gospel of Philip, Peter is even quoted as saying that “Women are not worthy of life”.
The bishops even quoted the words of Genesis, wherein God spoke to Eve about Adam, saying “He shall rule over thee”.
The Church Father Tertullian summed up the whole Roman attitude when writing about the emergent disciples of Mary Magdalene: “These heretical woman! How dare they! They are brazen enough to teach, to engage in argument, to baptize. It is not permitted for a woman to speak in church, nor to claim a share in any masculine function-least of all in priestly office.”
So when we look at why women have been so mistreated during the centuries, all we have to do is look at the abrahamic religions. Others like Hinduism view the feminine energy as the essence of the universe, the one who creates all matter and consciousness, the eternal and infinite, the metaphysical and empirical reality, the soul of everything. The woman is celebrated as the most powerful and the empowering force in some Hindu scriptures such as Upanishads, Sastras and Puranas.
The Buddha gave women full freedom to participate in a religious life. The Buddha was the first religious teacher who gave this religious freedom to women. Before the Buddha, women’s duties had been restricted to the kitchen; women were not even allowed to enter any temple or to recite any religious scripture.
Men and women are equal partners in our world. Until we all realize and adopt that concept there will always be a struggle. Some men believe staying home and raising children is far less that than bringing home food for the table. Women see emotional intelligence far more important than physical intelligence but yet most have to call upon men to move or handle things that are highly physical. The problem may be we have become more competitive and see one more superior than the other, when in fact, both are equal. There have been many men that have had to raise their children and have done an excellent job. But there is nothing greater nor is there any substitute for the Mothers love for her children.
Gnosticism is one of the most fascinating and perplexing phenomena in western theological history. At the heart was the Greek word gnosis meaning, “Knowledge or Direct knowledge of God”. Existing far before its Christian descendants, Gnosis in Classical Greek meant true knowledge or wisdom depending on which ancient philosopher one reads. According to Plato, reality as perceived by the five senses is merely the surface of a highly complex and structured system. The act of seeing and recognizing this system Plato calls “ideas.” A key element in his philosophy, which would later transfer to Gnosticism and Gnostic, is the concept that every human had a previous and thorough understanding of the structures of reality. Unfortunately, this knowledge was somehow lost. The reclaiming of this knowledge through the comprehension of reality underlying structures is Gnosis.
Gnosis in the first century was a quiet movement, adapting to the situations and locations of the societies it encountered. From early Christian literature, there is an impression that Gnosis was a threat to subvert Christianity, even though there seems to be no unified front of Gnosis during this time. The Gnostics were just a variety of independent, small sects that on the whole seem very different from each other. However, these different sects even debated the same metaphysical, cosmologic, soteriological, and ethical themes as their more mainstream Christian counterparts. Gnostics were the early movement of Christianity and lost the early Christian struggle to define orthodoxy.
So who were the Gnostics? Irenaeus of Lyon, a bishop in the late 2nd century was an enemy of the Gnostics whom he called heretics. Irenaeus claimed that a single true Christianity originated with Jesus and the apostles. In his view other groups, such as the Gnostics, may claim to be Christians, but they were false deviations for the one true Christianity, and all competing Christians were heretics. Today we know Christianity was diverse from the very beginning. Even the original apostles did not agree on a single Christian message.
One of the most striking features of the Gnostic myth as Irenaeus tells it is that the God of Genesis is lower than the ultimate God and is arrogant, ignorant and evil. He is hostile to humans beings because humans beings have a share of the divine spirit that belongs to the higher God. The real name of the god who created this world is Ialdabaoth, a spiritual being who runs this universe like a tyrant.
This biblical father god of the Old Testament, also known as Yahweh or Jehovah, was hostile to human beings when he commanded Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, preventing them from knowing the spiritual truth.
When Adam and Eve eat from the tree, they gain gnosis, knowledge of the true God. Eve was encouraged to eat the fruit from a female deity known as Sophea, (Wisdom). As human beings continue to see true spiritual knowledge, Yahweh grows jealous of their devotion to the higher God and causes a flood to wipe out humanity. The higher God, Universal Intelligence, saves Noah and his family from the Yahweh evil plot.
Finally, human beings begin to lose the knowledge that Adam and Eve gain when they ate from the tree, but Universal Intelligence sends Jesus to restore this lost gnosis and rescue them from Yahweh and his fellow rulers.
The Gnostic Version of the Garden of Eden is much like the Sumerian Tablets and the Law of One Yahweh is mentioned 19 times and agrees with much of what the Gnostics said about the God of the Old Testament.
Orthodox Christianity created the idea of heresy to condemn the Gnostics quest for higher knowledge because of the different belief system. Early Christians wanted a single harmonious system and considered themselves as a single body of Christ and did not want any division. Overtime, people who followed the Gnostics were considered godless and imperious members of a school of thought and therefore heretics. Some in the Christian religion still believe that today. The destruction of their sacred texts was inevitable, so some hid them in caves and various other places so they could not be found.
In 1945, one of the most important archaeological discoveries in the 20th century occurred. Thirteen ancient codices containing over 50 texts of Gnostic works were found in caves in Upper Egypt untouched by scribes. All of these can be found in the Nag Hammadi Library.
The discovery in 1945 provides a new and refreshing school of thought about spirituality and Jesus message. The discovery also came at a time when it could be shared with the world and not suppressed as it was for the last twenty centuries. Jesus is a teacher of wisdom and understanding, speaking in metaphors and parables of love and enlightenment. Much different from the sin and repentance as the Church teaches. Since the discovery and publications, the Gospel of Thomas has been the most celebrated of the 50 ancient texts discovered in 1945.
Jesus said in saying 5 of the Gospel of Thomas, “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.” Have we come to a time when all the secrets of the world are manifesting? Gnosticism was not confined to the Christians but is part of the belief systems of Sufism and the Saints of India and other eastern mystics. Gnosticism is not only alive but reemerging in a world that needs much love and wisdom.
