The Valentinian view on resurrection.

          As a Valentinian gnostic I seriously impugn the resurrection of the flesh because what is perishable cannot enter the domain of the imperishable. What is not real cannot enter the domain of the real.
"Do not think that the resurrection is an illusion, it is not an illusion in fact one ought to maintain the world is an illusion rather than resurrection." 
- Treatise on Resurrection

Pleroma, Kenoma and the Cosmos

If you want to enter the Pleroma then you must resurrect while you are alive, here and now. This is the true resurrection, the spiritual resurrection. Baptism leads to resurrection and redemption.
"Those who think that they will die first and then rise are in error, if they do not receive the resurrection while they live, when they die they receive nothing"  
- Gospel of Philip
If you want to enter the Kenoma then you must have faith in the psychic Jesus, the son of the demiurge and wait until his second coming and then enter the Kenoma.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. "
John 3:16
If you neither want to enter the Pleroma nor the Kenoma then be an atheist and perish with the cosmos.

Neither in Pleroma nor in the Kenoma the corpus body can enter. Well some might say that people have ascended to heaven alive with their physical bodies. Entering heaven alive is very much possible, I am not denying that fact, what I am saying is that at some point to enter the heavens of the Kenoma one must give up their physical bodies and wear their spiritual bodies.
"It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body." 
- 1 Corinthians 15:44

We divide the human Jesus from the divine Savior 

The Savior descended from the Pleroma in the form of a dove and entered the body of human Jesus at the time of his baptism and flew out of his body at the time of his crucifixion.
"As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him." 
- Matthew 3:16
The Savior sometimes spoke for the Pleroma and for his Father and sometimes spoke for the Kenoma and for the Jesus's Father, the Demiurge. This is the reason why the scriptures are ambiguous and truth cannot be extracted from them by those who are ignorant of tradition.

The Savior then raised the carnal psychic body of Jesus from death and taught the gnosis of the Father to his disciples and returned to the Pleroma, above the heaven of Sophia. The Savior indeed saved the world not by dying at the cross for our sins for we are not sinners from the beginning but the children of the Father of Truth but by imparting the gnosis of the Father he saved the world from the rulers of this world.
“Certainly they confess with their tongues the one Jesus Christ, but in their minds they divide him.”
          - Irenaeus

Our entire theology is based on Christology and we speak not on the basis of scriptures or on the basis of our intellect but we solely speak on the basis of revelation that we possess, it trumps logic, reason and just about everything, the pneumatic Christ contains with in him all the Aeons of the pleroma bodily, he will never ever cover his body with the hylic material substance. Its foolish to think the 'Word became flesh' literally, instead it means the Savior entered the body of human Jesus and suffered all the emotive feelings that the human body of Jesus went through from the time of his baptism to the time of his death at the crucifixion. Our docetic theology is a consequence of the very nature of Christ and the substance which form his body.

Role of Jesus in Valentinianism

The Secret of the Vedas by Shri Aurobindo, the great mystic.

      Vedas are one of the least studied scriptures of late antiquity, there are good translations available for the texts found in the Nag Hammadi library, the same also for the Dead sea scrolls, the Chaldean oracles, the Orphic mysteries, the Egyptian mysteries, the Magi etc and all these mysteries are well known to contemporary people and is in active debate among Aramaic Scholars and is readily accessible to everyone. But there is not even a single English translation available for the Vedas which is strongly grounded on the basis of tradition.

The interpretations of Griffith, Keith, Weber, Mueller and others sucks, it literally sucks, they have interpreted these texts holding a false assumption in their heads that the Vedic Aryan people were nomadic and barbaric people who were more interested in their wars and horses rather than on esoteric matters. They were well aware that the texts they were studying was unintelligible to them as they themselves admitted that it required the symbolic esoteric interpretation of the tradition to fully comprehend them. If this was the case why didn't they made an effort to understand the traditional view first before interpreting them on their own based on their knowledge of Sanskrit. This is nothing but bad scholarship and conformation bias. No wonder why the translations from these scholars sucks and the translations of traditional Indian Vedic scholars with years of tapasya behind them sheds so much light on the Vedic Aryans.

I have no faith in Indian people nor in Hinduism because they have sold themselves to western culture and have become its slaves and are no longer aware of their origins that they are Aryas (learned men known for their learning and wisdom) and have forgotten their duties. They have commercialized the Yoga and are no more interested in its origins and the truth behind it. When I brought these issues in discussion forums one westerner sarcastically asked me, "You are educating us?" and an another Indian westerner said "You will never make me worship your gods" thinking that Hinduism has become the hub of western intellectual scientific world leaving behind the multitudinous local traditions of spiritual India.

All this misunderstandings, so much of misinterpretation is because of the lack of a good sound English translation of the Vedas and for those who are from a long historical tradition these statements make us laugh seeing the atrocity of their pride and ignorance.

Aurobindo is right the increasing intellectualization of the Indian mind has resulted in a great National loss of wisdom and heritage. We as Gnostics do not give a damn about what science says about this world because our knowledge of the heart trumps logic, reason and just about everything else, I pity these intellectual scientific minded people who are so foolish to think that the scientific method is the only method that exists to arrive at the working of the universe, perhaps they should come out of their labs and see the awe and the beauty of the revealed truth and the ways of the gods.

Revealed truth is very powerful, Julian who was initiated into the Mithraic mysteries dedicated his entire life to revive the pagan gods, Saint Paul who received the direct Pleromic revelation from the pneumatic Christ reserved his whole life for the mission of spreading the message of Christ among the Gentiles. I for one do not find anything interesting in this world, everything sounds very boring to me compared to the amazing view of the abode of Aeons who reside and form the body of our Holy Father. What in the world is it? What kind of a technology is that? What those divine light rays are made up of? How it works?
"It was quite amazing that Aeons were in the Father without being acquainted with him and that they alone were able to emanate in as much as they were not able to perceive and recognize the one in whom they were."
        - Gospel of Truth

It is indeed an amazing view which makes you disinterested in all the things of this world and yokes your mind towards the light and the truth.

How is it I comprehend these mysteries and I am onto it in a flash, its because of only one thing, the Vedas, the mother of all mystery religions. Vedas are structured into Samhithas, Brahmanas and Aranyakas. Samhithas concentrate on the sacrifices and Brahmanas give a detailed exposition of those sacrificial rituals as to who should perform it and how it should be performed and it is in the Aranyakas that the esoteric knowledge and the meaning behind the rituals is hidden and all the Upanishads are inside the Aranyakas themselves.

The ascent of Heaven described in Mithras Lithurgy, Saint Paul's Pleroma theology, the cosmogony of Valentinus are all a piece of cake for us because our Rishis had been there and done that long before Saint Paul made an ascent to the third heaven and long before Mithraism spread out to the west from India, moreover despite so much misinterpretation and suppression there is a small minority of traditional Brahmins who still recite these Vedas and are very much aware of the rituals to make an ascent to the Heaven. That's the important thing, we have preserved the esoteric rituals of our religion because without the rituals a tradition is as good as dead.

Introducing polytheistic myth as psychology to save us from the death of local realism.

Yes local realism is dead, the view that objects exists independent of us. As Niels Bohr said, "Anyone who is not shocked by quantum mechanics has not fully understood it". I am not shocked I am mentally very disturbed because it feels like I am pushed into nihilism and emptiness where nothing exists but the correct approach is to embrace the open realism of Bernard D'Espagnat where at least something can be said to exist which is independent of us. According to Bernard D'Espagnat quantum mechanics is a pointer to an independent reality and I think it is pointing straight towards the Pleroma of God.

It is this view that "Gods are in our midst" or "Gods in our psyche" that the Vedas embrace and preserves the richness of the individuals and the beings in this cosmos and advices the humans and the Aeons to share and live peacefully and righteously.

Gods are real and these gods are everywhere,  in all aspects of human existence and in all aspects of human life
- James Hillman

It is with this psychological context that you have to read the Aurobindo's book The Secret of the Vedas.

I am indebted to King Helios and to Jesus Christ for the wisdom they have given me and it is my duty to worship them daily and I do not want to follow in the footsteps of Aurobindo, Swami Vivekanada, Dayanand Saraswathi, Gandhi etc but I want to follow in the footsteps of Yajnavalkya, Vashishta, Vishwamitra, Vamadeva, Agasthya, Gargi etc.

Colossians 2:9 - The greatest mystery ever revealed to mankind.

The entire Valentinian cosmogony is built around the very foundations of Christology i.e. the nature of Jesus Christ. This one verse alone can make Christianity stand above all religions for aeons to come.

How great is this mystery?

COLOSSIANS 1:24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of his body, which is the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.  27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles:  which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.  28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.  29 To this end I also labor, striving according to his working which works in me mightily. (NKJV)

Most psychic Christians would stop at this interpretation that "In Christ dwells all the fullness of deity in bodily form" and will not go beyond that but that's not the highest pleromic interpretation of the verse, Saint Paul is eyeing something very big here, it is the greatest mystery which was hidden from Aeons (anthropomorphic divine beings) and humans for ages and now the Holy Father wills that this mystery be known to all the pneumatics.

The meaning of the verse 2:9 changes dramatically if we take the Greek terminologies used by Saint Paul quite seriously.

"In Christ dwells all the pleroma of deity in bodily form."

Pleroma is a Greek word which means the totality of divine powers or Aeons (anthropomorphic gods) and not an abstract concept of fullness which the psychic ordinary Christians tend to hold. This was the Colossian problem, I wouldn't call it a heresy or neither the Christians at Colossians were heretics or Gnostics because there was no orthodoxy at the time of Paul, I rather see it as a concern of Saint Paul to ensure that his ministries understand the mystery of Christ correctly and unambiguously, the Christians at Colossians were worshiping each Aeons separately and individually and Paul insists that they need not have to worship each of the individual Aeons separately because all the Aeons reside in the body of Christ. Saint Paul specifically asserts that they reside in him and form his body. This is the highest Pleromic Revelation that a Gnostic can have. This is the truth, this is the Christ in you.

It is indeed amazing that Aeons were in the Father and they were able to emanate in as much as they were not able to perceive and recognize the one in whom they were. I hope everyone receives this light in their places and follow the path of righteousness.

Why am I, a follower of King Helios Aion Mithras support Pauline Christianity and side with Saint Paul?

Why do I side with Saint Paul and criticize the criticisms made by Julian and Ebionites against Saint Paul and criticize the criticism of Thomas Paine on Christianity? First let us see what those criticisms were.
But that from the beginning God cared only for the Jews and that He chose them out as his portion, has been clearly asserted not only by Moses and Jesus but by Paul as well; though in Paul's case this is strange. For according to circumstances he keeps changing his views about God, as the polypus changes its colours to match the rocks,23 and now he insists that the Jews alone are God's portion, and then again, when he is trying to persuade the Hellenes to take sides with him, he says : "Do not think that he is the God of Jews only, but also of Gentiles : yea of Gentiles also." 24 Therefore it is fair to ask of Paul why God, if he was not the God of the Jews only but also of the Gentiles, sent the blessed gift of prophecy to the Jews in abundance and gave them Moses and the oil of anointing, and the prophets and the law and the incredible and monstrous elements in their myths? For you hear them crying aloud: "Man did eat angels' food." 25 And finally God sent unto them Jesus also, but unto us no prophet, no oil of anointing, no teacher, no herald to announce his love for man which should one day, though late, reach even unto us also. Nay he even looked on for myriads, or if you prefer, for thousands of years, while men in extreme ignorance served idols, as you call them, from where the sun rises to where he sets, yes and from North to South, save only that |345 little tribe which less than two thousand years before had settled in one part of Palestine. For if he is the God of all of us alike, and the creator of all, why did he neglect us? Wherefore it is natural to think that the God of the Hebrews was not the begetter of the whole universe with lordship over the Avhole, but rather, as I said before, that he is confined within limits, and that since his empire has bounds we must conceive of him as only one of the crowd of other gods. Then are we to pay further heed to you because you or one of your stock imagined the God of the universe, though in any case you attained only to a bare conception of Him? Is not all this partiality? God, you say, is a jealous God. But why is he so jealous, even avenging the sins of the fathers on the children? 
- Julian, Against the Galileans.
As a follower of King Helios Aion Mithras I would have probably sided with Julian here because his arguments are quite fair and solid but unfortunately as it seems from his arguments he is completely unaware of the esoteric Pauline Tradition of Valentinianism and it is for this one reason alone that I cannot side with Julian.

The fact that the esoteric Pauline Tradition of Valentinianism possessed the highest pleromic interpretation of the bible and the way they said that the scriptures are ambiguous and truth cannot be extracted from them by those who are ignorant of tradition shows how powerful their Gnosis of the unbegotten Father was.

Julian's arguments completely breaks down when one sees Pauline Chrisitianity in this light, remember even Julian is confused of Saint Paul's teachings and finds his teachings quite strange, not only that the pneumatic Gentiles (i.e. The Greeks) are apart from the works of the Law according to Saint Paul, but also Jesus was not sent by the maker of this world or the Archons who rule this world instead he was sent by Abraxas the supreme Aeon of the cosmos.

So whatever Julian is criticizing against Saint Paul is based on a complete misunderstanding of his teachings. It is only the Valentinian Christians who brought a harmony between the Old Testament and the New Testament, who brought a harmony between the Jewish Christianity and the Gentile Christianity and the man behind this esoteric teaching was the Great Apostle Saint Paul of Tarsus.
The christian religion and Masonry have one and the same common origin: both are derived from the worship of the Sun. The difference between their origin is, that the christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man whom they call Christ, in the place of the Sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the Sun, as I have shown in the chapter on the origin of the Christian religion. 
 - Thomas Paine, On the origins of Freemasonry
From the time of my teenage the epistles of Saint Paul always attracted me and I knew Saint Paul was saying something different from the rest of the Apostles but as a follower of Helios I tried to separate myself as far as possible from the Judeo-Islam-Christian religion and if there didn't existed a secret Pauline esoteric tradition which claimed to have an esoteric interpretation of the Pauline epistles I would have probably agreed with Thomas Paine and Julian but as it is the case it is the existence of the Valentinian Pauline tradition which gives me such wisdom to side with Saint Paul and rubbish away the criticisms of Thomas Paine and Julian on Christianity and on Saint Paul respectively because when I read the Valentinian scriptures I do not find charlatanry or deceit but only the highest truth.
Those who are called Ebionites agree that the world was made by God... they use the Gospel of Matthew only, and repudiate the Apostle Paul, maintaining that he was an apostate from the Law. 
- Irenaeus
For the Ebionites I would suggest reading Ptolemy's Letter to Flora as to whether the Saviour came to destroy the Law or to fulfill them, you will find the answer to that question in that Letter and the pneumatic Gentiles are apart from the works of the Law and they are saved not due to their works but by grace from the unbegotten Father.

The Bridal Chamber in Gospel of Philip should be interpreted allegorically and spiritually.

Gospel of Philip is an highly esoteric Gospel and it is in this Gospel that the words Bridal Chamber is more frequently used. However some of them like the Latter Day Saints or the Mormon Church, Dan Brown and others have interpreted this sacrament sexually going so far as claiming that there existed a literal Bridal Chamber with the bride and the bridegroom which is completely in variance with the theme of Gospel of Philip.

Gospel of Philip is a Valentinian material, a Valentinian exposition and in such context the entire Gospel of Philip should be interpreted around the 'Fall of Sophia' myth and the restoration of fullness which takes place when the Saviour descends on earth to teach everyone the gnosis of the unbegotten Father. So the union in the Bridal Chamber is not something which takes place between an earthly bride and the bridegroom instead it is a union which takes place between the Holy Father and the individual who enters into the Bridal Chamber.

Gospel of Philip clearly slaps on their faces to all those who interpret the sacrament of Bridal Chamber sexually and literally which is a clear misunderstanding on their part showing a shear lack of gnosis.

No one can know when the husband and the wife have intercourse with one another, except the two of them. Indeed, marriage in the world is a mystery for those who have taken a wife. If there is a hidden quality to the marriage of defilement, how much more is the undefiled marriage a true mystery! It is not fleshly, but pure. It belongs not to desire, but to the will. It belongs not to the darkness or the night, but to the day and the light. If a marriage is open to the public, it has become prostitution, and the bride plays the harlot not only when she is impregnated by another man, but even if she slips out of her bedroom and is seen. Let her show herself only to her father and her mother, and to the friend of the bridegroom and the sons of the bridegroom. These are permitted to enter every day into the bridal chamber. But let the others yearn just to listen to her voice and to enjoy her ointment, and let them feed from the crumbs that fall from the table, like the dogs. Bridegrooms and brides belong to the bridal chamber. No one shall be able to see the bridegroom with the bride unless he become such a one.
         - Gospel of Philip

The author of Gospel of Philip clearly says that the marriage which takes place in the Bridal Chamber is not fleshly but pure, it is not the defiled marriage between an earthly bride and the bridegroom but an undefiled marriage between the Holy Father and the individual who receives the light.

I don't know what stupidity in them makes them think that the sacrament of Bridal Chamber is equivalent to the defiled earthly marriage, as a Valentinian Gnostic I am least concerned of the historical Jesus, I do not care whether he was married to Mary Magdalene or not, I am least interested to know his bloodline. What we are more interested is in the pneumatic Christ, the Christ in you and his acquaintance.

Thanks to this psychic world for completely missing the esoteric pleromic interpretation of the Gospel of Philip, who though hearing the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven do not hear and who though seeing they do not see and are more concerned with the earthly rather than the spiritual abode of Aeons.
