Experience is better than belief.

From the Religion mural, by Charles Sprague Pearce (1896)
There is a root from which all knowledge has emerged. Humanity has many names for it; we call it Gnosis.

Gnosis: (Greek γνώσις) knowledge.

  1. The higher meaning of Gnosis is knowledge from experience, especially experience of divinity or that which is beyond the five senses. 
  2. Gnosis can also refer to the tradition that embodies the core wisdom or knowledge of humanity, which has adopted many names and appearances according to culture, time, and place.

The Greek word Gnosis (γνῶσις) implies genuine knowledge of the truth. To understand truth, one must experience it. This is why real spirituality is based on one's own effort to experience the truth. Experience is gained by expanding the capabilities of our consciousness.

In order to understand what we experience, we must study the experiences of others. For this, we prefer to rely on those who have the qualities we wish to embody ourselves: compassion, profound love for all beings, insightful wisdom, brilliant intelligence, and radiant joy. So we study the greatest human beings and their legacies, in every field of understanding: philosophy, science, art, and religion.

A day never lacks importance; therefore, if we really want to transform ourselves radically, we must then see, observe and comprehend ourselves daily...
