Lecture 19 — The Three Factors of the Revolution of the Consciousness
Gnostic Anthropology by Samael Aun Weor The Secret History of Humanity
For centuries, humanity has been caught between science (evolutionism) and religion (creationism) fighting about our origin and purpose. Even though both sides have some truths, both are crippled by blind faith in theories, beliefs, and speculations that are short on facts, and abundant in contradictions and shortcomings. What if the truth about life — its origin, purpose, and future — could be found through the union of science and religion? What if, rather than relying on fanatics who only repeat what they have been told, one could learn to perceive and experience the truth for oneself? This is the essential point of view of Gnosis: knowledge from conscious experience. By awakening consciousness (which is “religion”) to perceive reality as it is (which is “science”), one can begin to see that our history is far more incredible than modern science or religion suspect… more
Podcast: 51 Minutes, MP3 Format, Free Download On one of the episodes of Star Trek, the original TV series, the Enterprise suffered an accident resulting in the existence of two completely different ships. On one ship each crewman was “normal” and on the other, everyone was “evil.” There was a “good” Captain Kirk and also an “evil” Captain Kirk. Spock, being a character normally associated with near perfection, also had an “evil” version. The episode was well done because the  interplay between the “good” and “evil” personas made for excellent TV.  Thought provoking entertainment like this, pushes us to look more closely at ourselves. We tend to identify more with the “good” Captain Kirk, not realizing that we too have an “evil” component. We get uncomfortable when it is suggested that perhaps there is some “evil” within each of us.  Allow yourself to be uncomfortable. Be brave and look inside. “How,” you ask? All you have to do is be quiet for a short time. Then, you will find that images will flash in your mind's eye. These images are the real “you.” Ignorance means we “ignore” these images. Albert Einstein spoke about the imagination. He said that if we can imagine something, then it is “real.” That thought can be a bit scary; but remember we are being brave. In this podcast, Mr. E. Jim G. Ross explains “evil.” Where did it come from? Is it possible to get rid of it? How does it affect our lives? These are all questions answered in Gnostic Lectures, a series of podcasts
bringing you the teachings of Samael Aun Weor. If you have listened to all of the lectures to date, you will be very familiar with Gnostic Anthropology. This episode is particularly important because it explains the “core teachings” of Gnosis. The Three Factors of the Revolution of the Consciousness addresses the most important parts of this very high knowledge. The three factors are simply: The dissolution of “evil,” The weapons necessary to accomplish this (transmutation), and Sacrifice for humanity. If this sounds too simple, it is. You should listen to the podcast to get a proper appreciation of what is going on inside each one of us. This is the “Great Battle” talked about in the Bhagavad Gita and the Holy Bible. This is the battle of “good” against “evil.” It's hard for people to realize a great truth. That is, if you destroy the evil within, your world will change on the outside as well. This type of “magic” is lost on the vast majority of people. They keep fighting “enemies” in the physical world, not realizing that the universe put those “enemies” there for us to learn. If we change our interior, our exterior MUST change in response to that act. Richard Roocroft November 2011
