Synopsis of the Book
Revolutionary Gnostic Philosophy deals with the Gnostic solution in regard to Final Liberation.
In this book Samael Aun Weor proves that human beings live in a section of the Cosmos in which they are subject to a great number of oppressive laws, making our life difficult and complicated.
The author explains in detail our position in the Cosmos, our place in the Ray of Creation or cosmic organization, and how we can take advantage of the ‘cosmic scale‘ (the symbolic Jacob’s Ladder) in order to ascend and get out of this limiting and painful conditions, to eventually live in a world, in a cosmos, of greater freedom, away from lower laws, until we finally attain the One Law, the One Will, the One Consciousness of the Absolute.
More importanly, Samael Aun Weor throws light on the fact that, because of the particular state of the human psychic, we have a tendency to identify, sooner or later, with denser worlds, with more complicated conditions; specifically, with what the author calls the Sunken Mineral Kingdom.
Samael Aun Weor goes on to explain that the Sunken Mineral Kingdom, with its dark forces, acts as a ‘magnet’, drawing human beings towards its bosom; to the extent that almost all of humanity is ‘devoured’ by the Sunken Mineral Kingdom or ‘planetary crematorium’.
The solution to this is given in this book, and can be summarized as the Revolution of Consciousness with its three cardinal factors, which are To Die, To Be Born and Sacrifice for Humanity.
The last part of the book is devoted to the study of the human subconscious, which is the study of the Ego itself.
The last chapters of the book are devoted to the science of meditation, which masterfully complements all the information given by the author in previous chapters.
In this book, and in order to eliminate the Ego or Psychological I, the author lays emphasis on the need for us to keep away from any form of false ethics, with its moralistic attitudes, based on sanctimoniousness and smugness, by which Gnostic students can be easily confused and identified with. The antidote to this is always to understand and develop conscious ethics, which spontaneously allows us to free ourselves from many forms of deception and self-delusion.
Written in 1965, Revolutionary Gnostic Philosophy is the second Christmas Message written by Samael Aun Weor with a distinct title (the first one being Technique for the Dissolution of the I).
As with every Christmas Message, it contains the ‘essence’ or ‘core’ of the Gnostic Teaching for the Age of Aquarius.
