As a Valentinian Gnostic I have no secrecy to maintain

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. I and the Father are one."

- Gospel of  John (28-30)
Most people often assume that Gnosticism is full of about secrecy and mystery as works like these Mystery and Secrecy in the Nag Hammadi Collection and other Ancient Literature: Ideas and Practices and others show. Many Hindus and Pagans often keep powerful spells a secret without sharing it in public which is so stupid of them to do like that. People of such attitude have not really understood about gnosis at all. 

Gnosis for all practical purposes is a private affair and nothing in this world can stop anyone of you to attain that and once you have gnosis no one can snatch it from you. It can be attained just like you attain any other knowledge only difference being other knowledge are readily available everywhere but gnosis is only available from the grace of God.

Just by sharing your gnosis or powerful spells with others will not decrease the gnosis that you have and will not burn down your house and even if others use the powerful spells that you shared with them for evil purposes its no great deal let them do why should we be so afraid of evil when we have our Father who is greater than all through whom both good and evil has originated and when no one can snatch the gift of immortality from him.

People are yet to come to terms with the religions of the Mediterranean people, they wholeheartedly accepted that the world which they were living was full of evil and accepted the fact that God has let both good and evil to equally co-exist in this world but in the end the good always win over the evil. Rather than blaming anyone or God for the current situation of the world they mastered the nature surrounding them and started controlling the forces of nature like divine magicians capable of achieving anything or even capable of creating a all new universe. This was the attitude of the Mediterranean people, they were not afraid of evil and they were not afraid to travel across the various worlds and the heavens.

When evil is rising across the world and ruling it what's the point of keeping your gnosis with yourself without sharing it with others? Don't we realize that the only thing that's going to save humanity from evil is the gnosis of the Father and not anything else? Did Jesus Christ resurrected and preached the gnosis for us only to keep it for ourselves boasting and making others look inferior to us of how special we are compared to others? No, he preached gnosis to us because we were the elected ones it doesn't mean that he has not sown the spiritual seed on other non-elected ones its just that they are not prepared for it yet.

I am not a Brahmin by birth and if I go and ask them to teach me Vedas, Upanishads and Sanskrit they will not teach me because of two reasons one I am a non-vegetarian and two I was not born as a Brahmin. However not all Brahmins are like that there are other Brahmins who oppose this and believe that everyone should be initiated into the mysteries of the Vedas and one such person was Devudu Narasimha Shastry who initiated me into these mysteries through his discourses just like the divine Iamblichus used to initiate people like Julian the Emperor into Mithraism through his discourses confessed by Julian himself. We need people of such attitude more in this world and not selfishly enjoy the grace which God has given to you when the whole world is actually burning. Gods never love such people.
