My entire life I have felt different from those around me. As a child going to bed meant that I go to dreamland; that land was real to me too. It was a joke to my siblings so as I grew up I mostly kept my dreams to myself. I migrated to the U.S. at age 18. In my early 20s, I embarked on a quest to learn about myself. At university I took as many Psychology courses as I could. I read on Buddhism, Theosophy, and Christianity. I continued my quest, learning to pray and meditate, all the while with a quiet sense of isolation.
I was led to Kabbalah--I felt like something was turned on within me. So much of what I read I felt as if I already knew. Through Kabbalah I came across Gnosticism. Both felt real to me. I wondered if I could become a Gnostic as I had never identified with any religious or spiritual practice.
Late last year, I came across your website and have been listening to the lectures and reading the materials/books.
Earlier today I read "Concentration" within Newest Articles and realized that the label of Gnostic is not so much the issue but being a serious student of Gnosis is!
Is that a correct assumption? When does one know if he/she is a Gnostic?
Thanks for sharing the wisdom of Samael Aun Weor and for your service.
