The Nag Hammadi Codex, Gnostic tradition
The Nag Hammadi Library is required pondering for any gnostic student of the mysteries, I think. Such a shame that the early powers of the common era destroyed many of the texts of antiquity, from the Mayan civilizations, the Egyptian Alexandrian library, the Gnostic (Knowledge) and Cathars of Europe, and on and on, these errors are a stain which can't be removed. What truth has the need to shut out the light of competitive thought? The Christian/Hebrew/Islamic school of thought is often concerned with the sacrifice and ultimate judgement, while more ancient considerations dealt with mystical traditions and origins, the evolution and unity of the essential spirit. It is a lucky thing that the works of the Greeks survived at all, Thales, Heraclitus and Pericles among those most aligned with the Law of One. The mysteries of Freemasonry have much to do with the Gnostic tradition, know thyself, being the great admonition.
