Not Your Preacher’s Christianity
August 12, 2012 § 1 Comment
Hello to all! Been a busy few months and we opened a gallery, bought a farm and moved. Catching back up with it all again.
I started dipping into the Nag Hammadi library again. This is the texts written by the Gnostics in the first century CE. This would put these guys as contemporaries of Jesus. Not too shabby. But what is so mind blowing about this text is that, to summarize, these guys gave us a warning about entities called Archons. I will quote the description of them:
“Archons are a species of inorganic beings that emerged in the solar system prior to the formation of the earth. They are cyborgs inhabiting the planetary system (exclusive of the earth, sun and moon), which is described as a virtual world (stereoma) they construct by imitating the geometric forms emanated from the Pleroma, the realm of the Generators, the Cosmic Gods. The Archons are a genuine species with their own proper habitat, and may even be considered to be god-like, but they lack intentionality (ennoia: self-directive capacity), and they have a nasty tendency to stray from their boundaries and intrude on the human realm. Archons are said to feel intense envy toward humanity because we possess the intentionality they lack. The Gaia Mythos describes how the Archons were produced by fractal impact in the dense elementary field arrays (dema) of the galactic limbs, when the Aeon Sophia plunged unilaterally from the galactic core.”
This is extraordinary in that this is often a description people use to describe aliens, or even demonic encounters. But this is also how we are beginning to describe the universal structure – the bit about how and where the entities live. Even more extraordinary from them comes this little tid-bit from the first century:
“According to the Gnostics, Judeo-Christian salvationism is the primary ploy of the Archons, an invasive implant. By recognizing and repelling the Archons, we claim our power, define our boundaries in the cosmic framework, and establish our purpose relative to Gaia, the indwelling intelligence of the planet.”
Holy Moly! The little theory I have been forwarding that though christian-judeo teaching is well meaning, we are being led astray from our true path by an archon called Jehova and that maybe, just maybe, the liberator is the opposite, the enslaver. When you take a fresh look at the stories, you start to see some real problems with the actual meaning of the stories and the roles the characters play – they turn out to be, in fact, the opposite of what we were taught to interpret.
This is also double fascinating to me because in the book I wrote about the war of gods, the “bad guys” as we have been taught, are really the ones fighting to liberate us from spiritual enslavement.
Food for thought. I think it is a good time to question our authority figures and get a fresh look on who they really are and what they want us to do for them, in all aspects of our lives.
Good weekend all. Be free!
