Gnosis is a Greek word meaning “knowledge”. In this case, knowledge acquired by direct experience and personal understanding, contrary to knowledge acquired by the accumulation of information.
Gnosis or Gnosticism is the essence of humanity’s wisdom, expressed in art, science, philosophy and religious traditions. It is the understanding of sacred geometry and the rules that control the whole universe. It was the faith of the Christians who were persecuted by the Catholic Church, and later the faith of the Knights Templar, once they discovered the Gnostic gospels.
The path of Gnosis is developed through meditation, by opening the Third Eye, traveling astrally, developing psychic abilities, talking to saints, avatars, guides, and even by talking to the dead.
The ultimate purpose is to develop an aura of Saint and finally merge with God. Those who follow this path, develop mastery once in possession of powers that transcend their body, such as fortunetelling, premonitions, telepathic abilities, and so on. And they do know that darkness is necessary for there to be light, they embrace it, but they ultimately work on the side of the light to bring order out of chaos. They are co-creators with God, builders or masons that co-create with the architect of the universe, God.
