On one of the episodes of Star Trek, the original TV series, the Enterprise suffered an accident resulting in the existence of two completely different ships. On one ship each crewman was “normal” and on the other, everyone was “evil.” There was a “good” Captain Kirk and also an “evil” Captain Kirk. Spock, being a character normally associated with near perfection, also had an “evil” version. The episode was well done because the interplay between the “good” and “evil” personas made for excellent TV.
Thought provoking entertainment like this, pushes us to look more closely at ourselves. We tend to identify more with the “good” Captain Kirk, not realizing that we too have an “evil” component. We get uncomfortable when it is suggested that perhaps there is some “evil” within each of us. Allow yourself to be uncomfortable. Be brave and look inside. “How,” you ask? All you have to do is be quiet for a short time. Then, you will find that images will flash in your mind's eye. These images are the real “you.” Ignorance means we “ignore” these images. Albert Einstein spoke about the imagination. He said that if we can imagine something, then it is “real.” That thought can be a bit scary; but remember we are being brave.
In this podcast, Mr. E. Jim G. Ross explains “evil.” Where did it come from? Is it possible to get rid of it? How does it affect our lives? These are all questions answered in Gnostic Lectures, a series of podcasts bringing you the teachings of the late Samael Aun Weor.
If you have listened to all of the lectures to date, you will be very familiar with Gnostic Anthropology. This episode is particularly important because it explains the “core teachings” of Gnosis. The Three Factors of the Revolution of the Consciousness addresses the most important parts of this very high knowledge.
The three factors are simply:
• The dissolution of “evil,”
• The weapons necessary to accomplish this, and
• Sacrifice for humanity.
If this sounds too simple, it is. You should listen to the podcast to get a proper appreciation of what is going on inside each one of us. This is the “Great Battle” talked about in the Bhagavad Gita and the Holy Bible. This is the battle of “good” against “evil.”
It's hard for people to realize a great truth. That is, if you destroy the evil within, your world will change on the outside as well. This type of “magic” is lost on the vast majority of people. They keep fighting “enemies” in the physical world, not realizing that the universe put those “enemies” there for us to learn. If we change our interior, our exterior MUST change in response to that act.
Evolution, Devolution and the Fate of Humanity
What is the origin of this humanity on planet Earth? What is the origin of all of the races, of Nature, of all which has been, is, and shall be?
"There are facts, cosmic and geological events, that are worthwhile to study in these
treatises of Gnostic anthropology. There is no doubt that Gnostic, scientific anthropology
unveils all veils related with the origin of the human being and the universe." -
Moving far beyond the limitations of conventional thought, this book presents a view of this planet which is harmonious with all of our most ancient traditions, and indicates the path towards the resolution of our most fundamental problems.
