GNOSTIC PHILOSOPHY

GNOSTIC PHILOSOPHY




 





GNOSTIC
γνωστικών (greek)
[ˈnɒstɪk]

ADJECTIVE
"Relating to knowledge, especially esoteric mystical knowledge."

PHILOSOPHY
φιλοσοφία (greek)
or "philo"+"sophia" which is the Love of Wisdom
[fɪˈlɒsəfi]

NOUN
"the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline."

That is my definition of the name : "Gnostic Philosophy".

[The words below will follow these definitions so we all know what I am talking about : not the Urban Dictionary terms.]

ESOTERIC
[ˌɛsəˈtɛrɪkˌiːsəˈtɛrɪk]

ADJECTIVE
"intended for or likely to be understood by only a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or interest."

EXOTERIC
[ˌɛksə(ʊ)ˈtɛrɪk]

ADJECTIVE
formal
"intended for or likely to be understood by the general public."

MYSTIC
[ˈmɪstɪk]

NOUN
"a person who seeks by contemplation and self-surrender to obtain unity with or absorption into the Deity or the absolute, or who believes in the spiritual apprehension of truths that are beyond the intellect."

Knowledge can come from anyone and any faith so remember to listen first before we judge. 

We need more than one source to make an informed decision.

You can lead yourself to the door of gnosis but you must open it.

You do NOT need priests, you need to know yourself
