To protect the peace of heart & mind of any person we come across, sounds like a very noble law. If I got it right this means that we should not challenge another one's beliefs. Does this also apply to their way of living?

Example:

Given the case we know someone who “walks the path of balance towards the light” and “performs only what his higher Being tells him to do”. But at the same time we observe that he from time to time inseminates a woman (trough sex and spilling) in order to “make her understand something by means of his enlightened seed”. For the same reason he rejects a marriage and actually has broken up his marriage years ago so he can “be free” to bring his light (in some special occasions his light-seed) where it is needed. He justifies this apparent infidelity with exclusive faithfulness & commitment to his Being not to a woman, even if there is love, and even out of love …

From a Gnostic perspective this seems completely wrong, doesn't it? I suppose he would probably be considered a black magician or someone who is “sincere but mistaken”.

Are we allowed to tell him that this is wrongdoing, or would it violate the law of the tranquil heart? If one dared to challenge his view on “bringing light to people” and “acting out the will of his Being” – it seems one would upset his heart.

It has been emphasized in this forum that it is a crime to stay silent when one must speak, but it is as well a crime to speak when one must stay silent.

When does the law of the tranquil heart apply, and when would it be a crime to not speak?

Only your Innermost can answer such a question. Therefore, it is necessary to know how to get answers from the Innermost, which is through meditation.

???

Of course you are right. Still, if this was so easy, why would I ask in here?

Aren’t there some Gnostic principles on this? Like guidelines that can be given to us in the meantime, while we are trying to get answers from the Innermost … an endeavor which, as you most surely know, may take years.

What would the instructors most probably do in such case?

In my case, I would do what I recommended to you: I would meditate.

Study this chapter ( and in fact, the whole book): The Difficult Path

In the work of the dissolution of the “I,” we need to devote ourselves completely to the Innermost Christ.

At times, problems appear which are difficult to resolve. Suddenly the path is lost in inexplicable labyrinths and we do not know where it continues. Only absolute obedience to the Innermost Christ and the Father who is in secret can, in such instances, wisely guide us.

The Path of the Razor’s Edge is full of danger, both inside and out.

Conventional morals serve no purpose; morality is a slave to custom, time, and place.

What was moral in ages past is now immoral; what was moral in the Middle Ages, in these modem times, can be immoral; that which is considered moral in one country is immoral in another, etc.

This seems to be a lesson in non-judging interaction with others.
Ok, thank you. Will take this to my heart.

Remarkable though, how these teachings first instill understanding in students on what is completely wrong in the eyes of God (like adultery, spilling etc. – not referring to man-made morals) and even do speak in quite a judging manner about black magicians and fornicators with filthy minds who will end up in the abyss – only to then say: but do not judge anyone who does so, because you never know whether their inner God is telling them to do these apparently immoral things. (in the chapter you linked)

Well. Maybe this is what we all need: to better ourselves, without trying to neither correct nor admonish or convince others.
