I have enjoyed listening to several lectures. Can anyone point me to a lecture explaining how this is essentially different from Catholicism?

The Gnostic Church

There are four very important paths that every Perfect Matrimony must know:

1. The path of the fakir
2. The path of the monk
3. The path of the yogi
4. The path of the well-balanced human being

The Universal Christian Gnostic Movement has a school and a religion.

We experience the first path in practical matters, learning to live with rectitude.

The second path lies within our church. Our Gnostic Church has its sacraments, rituals, and its convent life.

The third path has to do with occult practices. We have our esoteric practices, special exercises for the development of the latent powers in the human being.

Within the fourth path, which is “the Path of the Astute Man,” we live practically in the most complete equilibrium. We study Alchemy and Kabbalah. We work on the disintegration of the psychological “I.”

We are not members of the Roman Catholic Church. This church only follows the path of the monk. We follow all four paths. We have the path of the monk in our Gnostic religion with its patriarch, archbishops, bishops, and priests. That is why we do not belong to the Church of Rome. We are not against any religion, school, or sect either. Many priests of the Roman Church
have come to our ranks. People from all organizations have become affiliated with our Gnostic Movement. Our Gnostic Church is one of the most complete ones.

On the path of the fakir, we learn to live with rectitude. On the path of the monk, we develop emotion.
On the path of the yogi, we practice esoteric exercises that activate the latent occult powers of man. On the path of the balanced man, we work with Alchemy and with Kabbalah, and we struggle disintegrating the “I.”

Our Gnostic Church is the Transcended Church. This church is found in the Superior Worlds.

and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5
