Spreading awareness is like sowing seeds to make a Garden of Eden in a barren wasteland, but seeds can remain dormant in the harshest drought conditions and as soon as the rain comes, what appeared to be desolation turns into a magnificient sight to behold. Science, the Gnostic gospels, the Hermetica, the soul, can be buried and out of sight for the spiritual drought of an age of ignorance, but it will come back, knowledge can never be suppressed. One man who goes down the productive road will be more productive than a million, or even a billion, people going down the unproductive road. Christopher Columbus was the only man who knew the Earth was round and his knowledge produced much more than everyone else in Europe. The man who created the World Wide Web brought more change than all the world's politicians put together. This world is full of people who believe that their religion is going to produce peace, harmony, prosperity, happiness, an end of suffering etc, but in reality we don't have any of those things. Most people are on the unproductive path when it comes to spirituality and this is evidenced by the fact that religions have failed to deliver results and put an end to the problems affecting this world. It only takes a few people travelling on the productive road to bring positive changes to this world, but it requires that the average person changes the direction they are on and travel down the productive road. Someone who is awake is going to be more productive than the masses who are not awake.
This website will present an idea that sounds crazy to most people and this idea is also the main gist of this website. This idea is that the soul or who you were before you entered the body can be resurrected while you're still alive. Most people believe, if they aren't atheists, that the soul only gets resurrected or you only become the spirit once you die. This is an abberant view that has kept people ignorant and imprisoned by their illusions all their lives. The soul can not only be resurrected but it should be resurrected if you want to have a good life. The religions and the enlightened teachers never defined anything physical as life, they only defined the spirit as life and that is what you should become again. The words resurrection, born again, salvation and deliverance don't refer to joining a hierarchical religion and adopting a label, which separate you from everyone else, for the rest of your life. These words mean resurrection the spirit or the true self, being born again into the spirit, being saved and delivered from ignorance, pain and the oppression of the illusions. If you want to know the meaning of life, it's to gain it back. There's only a few people who have achieved this level of awareness and this is a very special group of people. One day this group will become the majority and then there will be a golden age.
You have come with knowledge,
that you might rebuke their forgetfulness.
You have come with recollection,
that you might rebuke their ignorance.
For you descended into a great ignorance,
but you have not been defiled by anything in it.
For you descended into a great mindlessness,
and your recollection remained.
You walked in mud,
and your garments were not soiled,
and you have not been buried in their filth,
and you have not been caught.
The (First) Apocalypse of James.
"A saint says that he whose knowledge is infused speaks as a man with experience, like one who has tasted the honey and says it is sweet. He who has not tasted of it says that it is sweet, but he has only tasted of it through knowledge. This is the difference between men." Pedro Ruiz de Alcaraz, Alumbrados member.
“What we are looking for is what is looking." Francis of Assisi.

The Hermetica are a body of mystical texts written in late antiquity, but believed during the Renaissance when they became well known, to be much older. Their supposed author, a mythical figure named Hermes Trismegistus, was thought to be a contemporary of Moses. The Hermetic philosophy was regarded as an ancient theology, parallel to the revealed wisdom of the Bible, supporting Biblical revelation and culminating in the Platonic philosophical tradition. This new translation is the only English version based on reliable texts, and Professor Copenhaver's introduction and notes make this accessible and up-to-date edition an indispensable resource to scholars.
Joel Goldsmith studied the spiritual literature of the world and he writes, “Insofar as I have observed from my study of the spiritual literature of the world, the truth stated in this book has never been fully revealed before, yet it is the absolute basis for true spiritual living.” The Thunder of Silence is based on the principle that there is an inner Grace available to all that does not operate through or by physical might or mental powers. Most people are not aware of this Grace, but when It is consciously realized, it will bring into expression everything that is necessary to our unfoldment. But, Goldsmith says, there is a price: this Grace operates only when we are willing to relinquish faith in anything and everything less than God – even faith in the “God” the world thinks it knows.

In his last years Mark Twain had become a respected literary figure whose opinions were widely sought by the press. He had also suffered a series of painful physical, economic, and emotional losses. The Mysterious Stranger, published posthumously in 1916 and belonging to Twain's "dark" period, belies the popular image of the affable American humorist. In this antireligious tale, Twain denies the existence of a benign Providence, a soul, an afterlife, and even reality itself. As the Stranger in the story asserts, "nothing exists, all is a dream."
The Epic of Gilgamesh, is perhaps the first story written down. The earliest version of it was written on Sumerian tablets, written in cuniform, found in Nippur in Mesopotamia and it was written down about 2000 BC. The author of the original story is unkown and the story was reworked by different cultures in Mesopotamia including the Sumerians, Akkadians, Babylonians and the Assyrians. The standard synthetic version is the 12 tablet Akkadian version of the poem found at the 25 000 tablet library of the Assyrian King Ashurbanipal (668-627) BC at Nineveh. The Epic of Gilgamesh is based on King Gilgamesh of Uruk in about 2700 BC. The Epic of Gilgamesh is significant for two reasons. The first one is that it is the first story ever written and the second is that it has parallels with the flood story in the Book of Genesis. A lot of academics and other people have concluded that the writers of the Book of Genesis had plagerized the Epic of Gilgamesh and this has empowered opponents of the Bible. But to suggest that the writers of the Book of Genesis plagerized the Epic of Gilgamesh is simplistic because most civilizations and religions take stories, knowledge, writing, concepts etc, from other civilizations and previous civilizations and the reworking of the Epic of Gilgamesh by different civilisations in Mesopotamia is a good example of that.
