Gnosis We’re Now Looking Down

“And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
—Genesis 2: 16-17


C.S. Lewis once observed: "A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you."

“The highway of the upright avoids evil;
those who guard their ways preserve their lives.
Pride goes before destruction,
a haughty spirit before a fall.”
—Proverbs 16: 17-18


Hieronymous Bosch

Gnosis We’re Now Looking Down


We climbed up this Tree of Knowledge…
Now…. at last(!)…we understand!
We decided it was worth it
Good and Evil's well in hand!

Higher-Up-Fruit’s most appealing
Just a few of us have found.
It’s New Gnosis-Fruit called “Progress”
Gnosis we’re now looking down.

Fruit of Gnostic Revelation
Highly treasured Secret Gems.
It’s The Harvest that’s most tempting…
Crawl out with us on this limb.

Branch out, man, and do your OWN thing!
Grab that fruit so proudly sown!
There’s No Fall, so there’s no problem.
Pro-Choice Gnosis…Pick your own!



“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.”
—Proverbs 3: 5-7
