A Gnostic Myth for the 21st Century

I want to make it clear that the following material has emerged spontaneously from the intensive visionary work I've been doing for the past three years. The ideas and images come in piecemeal; this is my initial attempt to fashion them into a coherent narrative. It's not a self-conscious attempt to update the Gnostic mythos for the 21st century, although it's working out that way. It serves as strong explanatory model for the apocalyptic events currently gaining momentum and suggests a means to avert disaster.

The Emanationists (all the various kinds, Gnostics, Hermeticists, Platonists, etc.) described a model of reality that is divided into fractally self-similar levels. It begins with an Ultimate Ground of Being, a No Thing Changeless and Eternal, a Void of Pure Intellect. Intellect requires an object; being all that is (and is not), the Void can only reflect upon Itself. In so doing, it divides into two opposite and complementary halves that, for lack of better …

Miracles Are Available to You

Incarnating the Goddess can be a relatively simple procedure. Alter your consciousness. Put on powerful music played at high volume. Concentrate. Feel. That's all there is to it, really. In the video below, the grandeur of Strauss' theme is moving enough, but coupled with the image of Kwan Yin emerging from the pleroma of white light, it's an overwhelmingly emotional experience. Intense emotion is what yields the visionary apprehension of the Divine called "gnosis."

Emotion is Spirit. It is a frequency of Her infinite energy. What you'll see in this video is me tapping into that, just for a moment. It pretty much fries my circuits...but what matters is that it supercharges my psyche. Remnants of that energy remain when the peak experience is over. That energy will nourish you when you're back in the "real" world, no matter how grim your circumstances are.

I'm posting this because I want you to know that this kind of miracle--a lit…

The Ups and Downs of Archetypal Activation

I make a lot of allusions to "what I've been going through," but unless you're one of the seven or eight people who've read the book I wrote about it, you have no idea what I'm talking about. Here's a post I cobbled together based on a question I answered in another forum. It explains why my experience of archetypal activation is both the best and worst thing that has ever happened to me.

When it first started, I was not inexperienced with psychedelics. I'd used LSD a few times, ecstasy a couple times, mushrooms maybe ten times, and ayahuasca thirty-four times. But on one particular night in late May 2017 I stumbled across a way of entering into a really heightened emotional state listening to a particular song while in an altered state of consciousness. It caused an at-that-point-for-me novel experience of energy waves flooding my body, intense images of concentration camps (due to the song), and a spontaneous ritual action of holding th…
