Wandering

So. A lot has changed since I first began this blog over three years ago, both for me personally, and within the "logosphere". Others have changed with it, some have moved on, and some have become too busy to post and share their perspectives about g/Gnosticism (both modern and ancient), what it is, what it means, and how it relates to their lives. I certainly am no exception to this.

I have indeed sought Wisdom, where ever I felt drawn to Her, and have found a variety of answers, but even more questions. My path has led both within and outside of "g/Gnosticism" (always a tricky word to define or nail down), and lately I have found my path leading quite away from the point at which I started.

This has brought me to the realization that indeed, I am moving away from "g/Gnosticism". I am forever changed by what I have learned. There are elements of g/Gnosticism that I will take with me, and lessons that have opened my eyes to things that I would have never considered four years ago when I first began to explore gnosis and Gnosticism.

I don't know if I'll continue to post to this blog. I'll certainly leave it as it as, but my focus is now elsewhere. For anyone who comes here with an interest in this Gnosticism thing, I'll point you in three directions: Philip K. Dick (he was a genius), Nag Hammadi Library (read it, know it, contemplate it), and the Apostolic Johannite Church (never been to any of their services, but I was and remain inspired by members of their clergy who have appeared in the logosphere).

One last thing: get out and do. Take what you learn about g/Gnosticism and get your hands dirty.  Let it inspire you. Volunteer to help with community organizations. Do something for someone else that will really mean something. Help those less fortunate than you. Spend time with yourself, contemplating your inner light and how you can be better than you are. But then go out and put it into action in your daily life. That's what this is really all about.
