I suggest the Roman Church dismisses apocrypha because no one within its ranks can understand them. Officially, according to Wikipedia, “Apocrypha are statements or claims that are of dubious authenticity”. The word comes from Latin, meaning “secret or non-canonical”. In Greek the word comes from verb “to hide away”. The Greek meaning is not only the most original but also sounds to me by far the most true. Namely, it means “secret knowledge”, not open to the “masses” and kept only for the “few”.
In Gnostic Scriptures the mystery of reality is explained in Acts of John in a single sentence:
“A lamp am I to him that searches for me, a mirror to him that finds me”.
Many mystics had hinted at this sentiment before the scribes put their quill to Gnostic Scriptures. Statements such as “The perceiver and the perceived are one”. Or “I and my father are one,” speak for themselves.
We search for our true identity.
The problem with religions is that, by externalizing divinity, they separate us from true reality. We’ve been told that truth will set us free. The realization of unity with indomitable inseparability from the Whole is so overwhelming that most people cannot contain it within their consciousness.
And yet this is the only truth that will set us free. Now, that the Age of Aquarius is upon us, that we are well into the throngs of the Pluto Effect that will destroy all old concepts, misdirection, twists, convolutions, lies, that our predecessors have introduced into a road that is, and always was, straight and narrow, are about to collapse. In this new Age, every man, every woman, will have to learn to rely on their own cognizance.
We shall have no one to blame but ourselves.
No more will TV preachers bamboozle us with childish interpretations of various scriptures.
All the accumulated knowledge of mankind was always intended to help us to serve as channels for the Single Consciousness that wants to enrich its own domain. The domain of heaven. The eternal state of being that we and we alone can create. “Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap” is a simple statement of fact, which reiterates the Law of the Universe.
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION. ANY RELIGION.
These are universal laws, identical in Russia, China, USA, or the darkest Africa. They are identical everywhere. Action equals an equal and opposite reaction. “Whatsoever we do to another, that also shall be done to us.” No matter how rich, powerful or exceptional we think we are.
When we shall learn this simple truth we shall overcome death itself. We shall no longer identify with our biological construct, magnificent though it is, but with the essence of life itself.
