Hermetic Introduction Pt I: The Key of Gnosis
by John Carnagey
My work serves to be a source of ancient esoteric wisdom and modern quantum sciences. Modern quantum sciences are beginning to validate and prove the truths and understandings of reality that we have been told of before by the Egyptian Mystery Schools and many ancient masters through out known history. That is…
1. That we are all an eternal “light/energy/consciousness/soul”. We are not bodies that have souls, rather we are souls experiencing a ‘body’.
2. That the very source of that soul is in fact The ALL or “God”. “While it is true that The ALL is ALL, it is equally as true that The ALL is within ALL”. “The source, limit, and constitution of all things is God. ” Thus making all life and creation sacred. (“Do unto others as you would have done unto you”)
3. Third, that those souls all being individuated pieces of The ALL, live within its infinitely expanding imagination. The universe is entirely mental in reality, nature, and construct, existing only in the mental perceptions and illusions of the senses presented to that soul. The imagination of god is in fact the dwelling ground/plane of existence that the soul ‘resides’ in, experiencing a ‘separate’ existence from inherent ‘oneness’. God is all, and all is in gods imagination. God is the force (energy) behind all ‘physical’ matter, this force is, primary, eternal, and of real substantiality. Matter is secondary, passing, and based in illusion.
“We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality, we are that reality, when you understand this you see that you are nothing, and in being nothing you are everything.”
“God sleeps in the rocks, stirs in the plants, dreams in the animals, and finaly awakens in man.”
-Famous Vedic Quote-
“Matter is fluid and flows like a stream, constantly changing from one thing to another… Know ye that which is formed is truly formless, having form only to thine eyes.”
-The Emerald Tablets-
“No One of Existing Things doth Perish, but Men in Error Speak of Their Changes as Destructions and as Deaths… The “restoration” of bodies on the earth is thus their composition, whereas their dissolution restores them to those bodies which can never be dissolved, that is to say, which know no death. Privation, thus, of sense is brought about, not loss of bodies. ”
-The Corpus Hermeticum-
Time is the force that allows the oneness of The ALL, to mentally individualize and experience the illusion of separation…
“Know ye, O Thoth, in the beginning there was VOID and nothingness, a timeless, spaceless, nothingness. And into the nothingness came a thought, purposeful, all-prevading, and It filled the VOID… In the beginning, there was eternal thought, and for thought to be eternal, time must exist. So into the all-prevading thought grew the LAW of TIME…
Time changes not, but all things change in time. For time is the force that holds events separate, each in its own proper place. Time is not in motion, but ye move through time as your consciousness moves from one event to another.
Aye, by time yet exist, all in all, an eternal ONE existence. Know ye that even though in the time ye are separate, yet still are ONE, in all times existent…
Within thee is all time and space.”
-The Emerald Tablets-
Thus life in an eternal mental universe consists only of a series of sequential moments. The flow of which man calls ‘time’. In each moment of ‘time’ we have a choice, to live fully engaged in that moment untethered to the past or future, finding true lasting happiness by attuning to the light of self (God) within, or to dwell in the darkness and despair of the ego (devil). The wise find true happiness and bliss from the eternal heaven within, the fool falls to the folly and sorrows of the pursuit of fleeting happiness amongst an ever fading and passing illusion.
“The Kingdom of heaven is within you.”
“The enlightened man, recognizing that the world is but an illusion, does not act as if it is real, so he escapes the suffering.”
“When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky”
