Gnostalgia

I once heard a priest, speaking on some of the nuttiness within Orthodox Convert circles, claim: “Shine a light bright enough and even the bugs will come.” For me, this was true of what I now know as Gnosticism. Some of us, through no special intent or talent, seem to have a built in Decoder Ring for the esoteric and metaphysical sciences. This is not to say, at least in my case, that there is always understanding nor just mere attraction. Rather, it’s part of the thing that is the thing. Like déjà vu. You don’t WILL such events. But when they occur, a certain sure and uncertain comfort, which seems timeless, is encountered. For me, that was New Age before it was called such; “Gnosticism” before I even knew the word.

More to come …
