In the early days of Yeshua, the movement was known to many as gnosticism, gnostic, or gnosis — meaning to know/knowing. The goal was, is, True Humanity. Today, in our modern world, the early gnostic movement has too often been misinterpreted. A real gnostic was, is, a spiritual scientist — a scientist who recognizes the importance and symbiotic nature of soul and spirit relative to science and true knowledge. That the physical human body (DNA, genetics), the emotional body (energy in motion), the mental body (mind), and the spiritual body (soul) all play crucial roles in overall human health.
When the Blessed One/Christ had said these things, he greeted them all, “Peace be with you!“ he said. “Acquire my peace within yourselves! Be on your guard so that no one deceives you by saying, `’Look over here!’ or ‘Look over there!’ For the child of True Humanity exists within you. Follow it! Those who search for it will find it. Go then, preach the good news about the Realm. Do not lay down any rule beyond what I determine for you, nor dishonestly promulgate law like the lawgiver, or else you might be dominated by it.“ After Jesus said these things, he departed from them.
